Test project, we use this to verify that it is really a bug

In earlier version of Xamarin, this scenario works.

    public class BigClass
        public DataClass Inner
            private set;

    public class DataClass
        public string AGetSetProperty { get; set; }


The text field

<Entry Text="{Binding Inner.AGetSetProperty}" />

will be able to set the 'AGetSetProperty' of Inner Class property.

However in version (and also pre-1) it does not, the value of Inner.AGetSetProperty can be read but it will not be set.

Attached in the attachment is the Zipped test case we produce to ensure that it is the bug on Xamarin so we have to workaround.

Add an Empty Set block to the property along the way until reaching the final leaf property you need to set.

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms with the help of Test Project attached in bug description and able to reproduce the reported behavior.

Please refer the screencast with Xamarin.Forms : www.screencast.com/t/o9gGFFSfzgfz

I have also checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms and observed that we are able to set the value of Inner.AGetSetProperty.
