The Switch control does not honor the IsEnabled property.  You can set it to false, but the control still functions.

Can you provide more context? I am unable to reproduce with this information. The failing code / project along with information of your development environment would be very helpful.

Using Visual Studio 2013, Update 3.

In my XAML I have a StackLayout, in which is another Stack Layout containing the Switch:


        <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalOptions="Center" >
            <Label Text="Login without User Name" YAlign="Center"/>
            <Switch x:Name="chkAnon" Toggled="Anynonmous_Toggled" />

        <Entry x:Name="eUser" Placeholder="User Name" />
        <Entry x:Name="ePass" Placeholder="Password" IsPassword="true" />
        <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalOptions="Center" >
            <Label x:Name="lblSave" Text="Save User Name and Password" YAlign="Center"/>
            <Switch x:Name="chkSave" />


That's minus all the other controls, of course. So, when the user toggles the first switch, chkAnon, in the event handler, I do the following:

        public void Anynonmous_Toggled( Object sender, EventArgs e )
            eUser.IsEnabled = !chkAnon.IsToggled;
            ePass.IsEnabled = !chkAnon.IsToggled;
            chkSave.IsEnabled = !chkAnon.IsToggled;

The two entry fields disable, the chkSave switch does not...
