Is there any setting in Designer for a table control to keep the table header visible at top of the screen until the table content has fully been passed?
Reading a table w/o headers may be confusing for the users. Especially when a lot of columns is presented.

No, this would require a new way of scrolling with a part of the screen. Also, your requirement for table headers to disappear once the whole table is scrolled away would a real task!

What you can do instead is to insert the same row as header every x rows. As long as it is obvious that this is not part of the data?

Here is a sample of what I meant. I'm using a dynamic table and within it I have rows which act like header - I only show them every 10th row by calculating Table Row visibility via XPath:
count( preceding-sibling::Row ) mod 10 = 0

And below is a screenshot of how it looks in Simulator for iPhone5. You have to understand that this is just one of many approaches. With help of XPath and XQuery you can transform your data to a completely different representation.

Thank you for the detailed explanation and the example. Implementing this will help a lot.
