Description Jeremy Herbison 2015-04-21 22:39:48 UTC
The following code throws a strange exception, unless the Button inside the ViewCell has its HorizonalOptions set to something other than Fill or FillAndExpand (or a it is placed in a container with said option configured). The issue was found on WinPhone. Unable to test on iOS or Android at the moment.

Message = "MeasureOverride of element 'Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WinPhone.ViewToRendererConverter+WrapperControl' should not return PositiveInfinity or NaN as its DesiredSize."

  <TableView Intent="Menu">
      <TableSection Title="Account">
        <EntryCell Placeholder="Email Address" Text="{Binding EmailAddress}"/>
        <EntryCell Placeholder="Password" Text="{Binding Password}"/>
          <Button Text="Kaboom!"/>

Definitely only a WinPhone issue.
Comment 2 Ram Chandra 2015-05-04 09:34:43 UTC
I have checked this issue but we are unable to reproduce this issue.

Could you please provide sample application? So that we can reproduce this issue at our end. If you have a chance, it might also be helpful to include some other pieces of information: like version of Xamarin.Forms you are using, logs and Environment Info.

You can get Environment info from here:

Visual Studio => Help => About Microsoft Visual Studio => Copy Info

You can get Logs from here:

Visual Studio => HELP => Xamarin => Zip Xamarin Logs (please attached that zip file with this issue).

Test Case
Comment 4 Jeremy Herbison 2015-05-13 12:56:02 UTC
In creating my test case, I discovered the issue is not apparent with XF 1.3.3 (which is the solution default). It first crops up with an upgrade to 1.3.5.
Comment 5 Jeremy Herbison 2015-05-15 11:43:53 UTC
Changing back to NEW because i'm not sure anyone will ever look at my test case otherwise.
Comment 6 Ram Chandra 2015-05-21 12:12:04 UTC
@Jeremy: Thanks for the test case.
