Description Riwen 2015-08-20 13:30:24 UTC
Picker modal doesn't show up if the 'Items' list contains 5 or less items. Above that size, it works fine.
Comment 1 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2015-08-21 16:40:11 UTC
I've written up a reproduction project which I'll attach that displays the issue in question; it doesn't seem to happen in a Universal Windows project but does for Windows Phone (8.1).

Should be fixed in 2.0.2-pre1
Comment 4 Rui Marinho 2016-01-20 11:40:45 UTC
Correction should be fixed in 2.1.0-pre1
Comment 5 Pavel Fedotovsky 2016-01-20 11:58:40 UTC
When 2.1.0-pre1 will be released? It's been a month since last release of Xamarin.Forms nuget package.

Pavel hi, we have lot's of stuff in this release and took a little longer, it should be out this week.

Hi Rui, thanks! I can't wait to test a new version :)

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms and now its working fine.

Hence closing this issue.
Comment 9 rfreschi 2017-03-13 21:22:22 UTC
I'm still seeing this issue in a Windows Mobile 8.1 project, XF

6 items - works fine, selection shows modal page
5 items does not.

Is there a way to force the modal?

If you run the attached repro project with, does the problem occur? If so, are you seeing it in the emulator or on a device? If on a device, what model?
Comment 11 rfreschi 2017-03-15 17:56:33 UTC
Yes the problem is occurring and consistent on an 8.1 emulator, a Windows 10 emulator, and an 8.1 HTC device with the repro project.

I'm using VS 2015 on a Windows 10 machine with latest stable version of Xamarin.
Comment 12 rfreschi 2017-03-15 18:03:07 UTC
The UWP project is working fine. The problem is only with the 8.1 project.
