My layout originally had a ScrollView as the root element defined in the axml file. I needed to make alterations to it's behaviour so created a new class that inherited from ScrollView called CusotmScrollView. I then replaced the ScrollView with a fully qualified reference to the CustomScrollView in the axml file i.e:
This resulted in a runtime error when the view was inflated with Java.Lang.ClassNotFoundException for the CustomScrollView.
My workaround was to add a FrameLayout as the root of the view wrapping my custom view:
This removed the error.
Created attachment 6488 [details]
One interesting thing is that Xamarin.Android has "fixup" logic to convert C# names within .axml files into the corresponding java ACW names, so that <Scratch.CustomRootView.MyScrollView/> becomes <scratch.customrootview.MyScrollView>.
That isn't happening if <Scratch.CustomRootView.MyScrollView/> is the root element. :-/
If I manually "fix" Resources\Layout\Main.axml file to use <scratch.customrootview.MyScrollView/> instead of <Scratch.CustomRootView.MyScrollView/>, then the sample works as expected.
It is because the root element isn't "fixed" that the ClassNotFoundException is generated.
Fixed. Thanks for the report.
Today, I have checked this issue with attached project in comment 1. Now this issue is not exists sample is runnig successfully, without any error.
Hence closing this issue.
