Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2015-06-04 17:00:36 UTC

Within Android Lollipop there is a limitation of using Page.IsBusy as Google has stated they no longer support this on Material Design Action Bars:


Because of this, when one tries to use the Page.IsBusy = true, the following is thrown from the console:

06-04 16:27:28.409 E/PhoneWindow(31185): Circular progress bar not located in current window decor

*Reproduction Steps

1. Open Attached Sample

2. Run on API 21+ device

3. Notice that the ActivityIndicator does not appear and the console message above is thrown.

*Xamarin Forms Version


*Version Information

XVS - 3.11.586.0
