Description Chase Florell 2014-06-19 17:36:59 UTC
In my xaml I have the following element.

    <WebView Source="{Binding ContentHtml}" VerticalOptions="Foo" />

When I run it, it throws the following exception.

> System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot convert "Foo" into Xamarin.Forms.Color

I'm pretty sure the VerticalOptions property isn't intended to be a color.

does anyone read these bug reports? This is a simple one, and it's still categorized as NEW.

it's simple, 

 1. set `VerticalOptions` to something invalid.
 2. run the app, and look at the debug output.
