Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2014-07-14 15:27:56 UTC
Reproduced by the following page:

    class StepperDemoPage : ContentPage
        Label label;

        public StepperDemoPage()
            Label header = new Label
                Text = "Stepper",
                Font = Font.BoldSystemFontOfSize(50),
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center

            Stepper stepper = new Stepper
                Minimum = 0,
                Maximum = 10,
                Increment = 0.1,
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
                VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand,
                IsEnabled = false
            stepper.ValueChanged += OnStepperValueChanged;

            label = new Label
                Text = "Stepper value is 0",
                Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(NamedSize.Large),
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
                VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand

            // Accomodate iPhone status bar.
            this.Padding = new Thickness(10, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), 10, 5);

            // Build the page.
            this.Content = new StackLayout
                Children =

        void OnStepperValueChanged(object sender, ValueChangedEventArgs e)
            label.Text = String.Format("Stepper value is {0:F1}", e.NewValue);

Works fine on iOS/WinPhone, but on Android it is still enabled.

I've the same problem (stepper reacting despite IsEnabled = false) on Windows Phone and Android (iOS not tested) with version

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps below : 

1. Create a Xamarin.Forms Application.
2. Apply the given code on the application.
3. Run sucessfully.

After running the application I  have observed that "IsEnabled" does't works fine on android while this is working fine for iOS. I have checked this issue on Forms version and and getting same behavior with both Forms versions.

This is still an issue it appears.  Trying to set a binding for the steppers' IsEnabledProperty seems to be broken as well.
Comment 4 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-02-24 13:37:12 UTC
Should be fixed in 1.4.0-pre1
Comment 5 Parmendra Kumar 2015-03-03 06:56:19 UTC
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms version and now its working fine at my end.

Hence closing this issue.
