Whatever I put in the backgroundColor parameter including transparent, it simply disregards it.
Also, the Table View With API -> Table View (Style 3) in the Kitchen Sink has the same problem. The example code has chip.jpg for the window background, and transparent for the tableview but that background does not get displayed.
I'm using 2.1.2 GA with iOS 6 SDK.
Mobile SDK 2.1.3RC fixes this issue. Must be related to iOS 6 SDK.
For those who do not know, the continuous builds of mobile SDKs are available at http://builds.appcelerator.com.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html
