[xuni_archive]Here is a re-post of the edited version I cannot see:
Yesterday I finally found some time to try out new Xamarin Edition beta. Here is my feedback.
Firstly the documentation is misleading. To quote:
Additionally, FlexChart, FlexPie, and ChartCore have all been consolidated into one single package instead of three different packages. To use FlexChart or FlexPie, you now need to add a single package developed for the platform of your choice:
In fact this control is not available in the beta.
In my actual App, I use the FlexGrid, FlexChart, Calendar and Input controls. So I replaced all but the FlexChart with the beta nuget versions of the controls.
Apart from the changes to namespaces and names there is another breaking change which I couldn’t find mentioned in the documentation.
In the formatting of the FlexGrid, there appears to be a change where the “CreateCell” Method has been replaced by a “PrepareCell” method.
I don’t now whether it is because I have a mix of Older Xuni controls and the newer beta controls but now any page that has either the new beta versions of the controls or the xuni FlexChart crashes giving the very unhelpful message of “An unhandled exception occured.” I have no other clue what the issue may be.
Any Ideas here?
Please note those pages that have only Xamarin controls work fine.
For your reference I am using Xamarin Cross Platform PCL project in Visual Studio 2015. Xamarin Version 220.127.116.11 and Xamarin Forms Version 18.104.22.168.
Hope this is useful,
