Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2015-03-30 17:26:49 UTC

TouchWiz which is a front end UI built by Samsung TouchWiz does not render Xamarin.Forms Pickers to a usable state within Android. Typically a Picker in TouchWiz provides an up/down arrow to provide scrolling through a list of items in a picker. However with the current implementation, the user is stuck at a Picker modal in which they can only back out of using the physical back button on a device.


Any Picker sample will suffice on a Samsung device with TouchWiz installed:
