As of 2018.2.620, UI for Xamarin will invoke approximate 600 warnings when compiling an Android project that uses SDK later than 23. This is due to the fact that the UI for Xamarin.Android controls are built on API 23, which will surface warnings at compile time if the project consuming them is using a later version. Although UI for Xamarin is compatible with newer version, and causes no impact on the outcome, these warnings obscure any meaningful warnings the user might have. This is a problem when projects are built in a CI/Cd pipeline and warnings are treated as important/significant for enterprise CD deployment (i.e. scrolling through 600 warnings to find any legitimate warnings is not practical). Available in R3 2018 release.
We can build on our personal development environments without issue. The issue is only on the Azure DevOps build server. We believe this to be related to a version incompatibility. Possibly the build server is attempting to reference an old library. We are seeing the issue on both iOS and Android builds.
This issue is well documented here:
Our version info:
- Build server is using Microsoft's hosted agent with Visual Studio for Mac 188.8.131.52 (attached file with all software installed on the host build-host-software.txt)
- App is on version 3.4.0+
- Referenced libraries use .NET Standard 1.6 and 2.0
- Xamarin.Forms app is hosted in a .NET Standard 2.0 library
Could we get a hold of an older compatible version of the software that can work with our version if there is no workable solution here ?
When iOS 12.1 software keyboard is toggled, the entry bar doesn't shift to the right height.
In the attached gif, we can see the entry bar shifted up, but not high enough to stay above the keyboard. As a result, the keyboard blocks the entry bar
