this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
An Activity that is hosting a NavigationPage will cause a NRE on a device with a physical keyboard when the screen rotates due to that device's keyboard sliding out. This happens when the normal "ConfigurationChanges = ConfigChanges.Orientation | ConfigChanges.ScreenSize" flags are set to allow orientation changes.
For example, on my Droid 4 device, as long as I do not slide out the physical keyboard, all orientation changes work as expected. Once I slide out the keyboard, a NRE is throw by the Android Activity.
The stack trace of this exception is:
at Xamarin.Forms.NavigationProxy.set_Inner (INavigation value) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.Platform.SetPage (Xamarin.Forms.Page newRoot) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.AndroidActivity.SetPage (Xamarin.Forms.Page page) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at [Activity].OnCreate (Android.OS.Bundle bundle) [0x0001f] in [Activity]:[Line Number]
If two additional ConfigChanges are includes, this error does not come up. Adding these values fixes the problem:
"ConfigChange.Keyboard | ConfigChanges.KeyboardHidden"
I've attached a sample that shows the error. Page 1 exists outside of the Navigation Page and does not error out. After 10 seconds, it will transition to page 2 which is inside a NavigationPage and does cause the error.
I have tried to reproduce this issue but there is no attached sample.
Could you please attached the sample application and build information? So, that we can reproduce this issue.
You can get build information from here:
