Description andrew.bilyk 2014-08-08 12:02:51 UTC
I'm using XAML to define a ContentPage, which contains a ScrollView which contains a Grid.  I have multiple switches within the grid, defined like so:

<Switch IsToggled="{Binding IsTransportationCategoryEnabled, Mode=TwoWay}"
              IsEnabled="{Binding IsTransportationCategorySettingEditable}"
              Grid.Column="1" />

On Windows Phone, the IsEnabled binding takes effect only upon load of the page; the switch's enabled-ness will reflect the status of that bool upon initial page load, but further changes to that bool during the page's life have no effect.  I can confirm that I'm using NotifyPropertyChanged correctly.

This problem does not occur on Android; unable to check at the moment on iOS.

Also, as a test on Windows Phone again, I temporarily changed the offending IsEnabled attributes to IsVisible (leaving everything else the same), and that worked correctly, with each switch visibly disappearing when appropriate.
