Example solution referenced in description

Test environment ->
Running on - Android tablet: 4.0.3;
Debugging in - latest stable Xamarin: 5.4 (build 240); latest stable Xamarin.Android: 4.16.0 (Business Edition)

Issue ->
Receive the runtime exception (below) in TestBinding.ViewModels.OneVM#OnPropertyChanged() whenever I attempt to modify the "LabelText" property that is bound to a label in TestBinding.Views.One.

Attached ->
In the attached .ZIP file I have a simple "Xamarin.Forms Portable" solution with two screens each containing only a few views. I can update the Forms.Entry views on the "One" screen by clicking buttons on the "Two" screen which send messages. Attempting to update the Forms.Label text causes the error to be thrown.

In the attached solution I am not setting the Forms.Label.BindingContext, but setting it to the ViewModel did not have an affect.

Exception ->
The given key was not present in the dictionary.

Also attempting to set the "username" Forms.Entry on screen "One" to invisible in a similar manner causes a similar error.
Comment 2 rphillips 2014-09-23 18:44:46 UTC
Also reproduced on an iPod Touch: iOS 6.1.6.

1. Open attached sample application in XS
2. Build an deploy the application on Android device
3. It will deploy successfully, you will see a page titled "One"
4. Enter something in username and password and click on Button named "Two"
5. you will see a page titled "two"
6. Now click on Label/Visible yow will get the following exception:

The error could be better, but you're setting up views as relative to views that you're later removing. Views that you've created relationships too must be in the RelativeLayout and must stay there. This works fine at first because the view is present, but after that cycle you're removing it. Some operations, especially those that bring in the keyboard, can trigger a relayout which will go through the relationships again.
