Description Michael 2015-03-09 16:40:24 UTC
The Elevate property does not render correctly in Xamarin Forms Projects. The elevate property is a Android 5.0 feature.

Steps to reproduce:
Open and run attached project
Top button should be elevated in comparison to the bottom button

ElevationButtonRenderer.cs in the Android portion of the project contains the custom renderer with the elevation property implemented.

I have checked this issue with the help of attached sample given in bug description and able to reproduce it successfully. I have deploy on device Android 5.0 and observed that top button elevated in comparison to bottom button.

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms
