Description Kevin.Murray 2014-08-12 15:12:07 UTC
In the following Xaml:

 <Switch x:Name="chkInfo" IsToggled="false" />
            <Label BindingContext="{x:Reference chkInfo}" Text="{Binding Path=IsToggled}" />
            <Entry x:Name="txtName" BindingContext="{x:Reference chkInfo}" Text="{Binding Path=IsToggled}"/>

The Label control will update with "True" or "False" as the switch is used.  The Entry field will not.  I discovered this because I was actually trying to link the Switch toggled status to the Entry field's IsEnabled property (a binding which also didn't work).  I wasn't able to get an Entry field to bind to another View successfully at all.

I found my problem, like two minutes after submitting this and trying lots of things...however, it won't let me delete the bug from the system...apologies.
