Description louis.petiot 2015-05-28 13:37:52 UTC
I created a large widget for Android. Its size wraps the device width.
With the new version of Xamarin Studio 5.9, a transparent border (a few pixels) is added around the widget.
No change in the source, only re-build. So, the contents of the widget are reduced.
With the previous versions of Xamarin studio, no border.

Could you share your widget custom sizing/drawing code and the layout XML where its in?

Also a screenshot would help seeing what you mean.

The png attachment contains 2 screenshots : the left part is the widget after the new version of xamarin, the right part before the new version.
