*Reported on behalf of a user*
If has been noticed that the whole solution must be manually cleaned every time a resource is changed (layout, drawables, etc). Building without cleaning cause changes to resources to be ignored. This happens whether fastdeploy is enabled or not. This makes it unclear whether a change doesn't reflect in the app because the method used was incorrectly, or because the change was ignored (no clean).
I've tested this on master. modifying layout files and strings.xml etc does not automatically rebuild the Resources.Designer.cs however a build does. I cannot replicate the issue where a clean is required.
I will test on 126.96.36.199 and see if I can replicate the issue on that version.
Is there a sample project available?
In the sample project the Main.axml is invalid.
There is an entry which is looking for @id/svMain which does not exist.
changing this value to an id which does exist allows the project to compile and the Resource.Designer file is then updated.
So this is not a problem with the build system, but rather with the layout that is in the project.
What should we do in this case?
