Description daniel.luberda 2014-08-06 18:03:28 UTC
When an Entry has BindingMode set to OneWay, changing ViewModel property doesn't change Entry Text.

Tested on Android, XF 1.2.2

Here's working reproduction (just click the button): 

namespace XamarinTest
	public class EntryBindingBug : ContentPage
		class Test : INotifyPropertyChanged
			public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;

			decimal entryValue = decimal.Zero;
			public decimal EntryValue
					return entryValue;
					entryValue = value;

			void OnPropertyChanged(string caller) {
				var handler = PropertyChanged;
				if (handler != null) 
					handler(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(caller));

		public EntryBindingBug()
			Title = "EntryBindingBug";

			BindingContext = new Test();

			var entry = new Entry() {
				Placeholder = "Entry"
			entry.SetBinding(Entry.TextProperty, "EntryValue", BindingMode.OneWay);

			var button = new Button() {
				Text = "Click me"

			button.Clicked += (sender, e) => 
				var context = BindingContext as Test;
				context.EntryValue = context.EntryValue + 1;

			var root = new StackLayout() {
				VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand,
				HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand,
				Children = {

			Content = root;

This is specific to Entry, it's actually clearing the binding when its content updates.

Fixed for next update.
