When using StripeView UI on iOS as a custom renderer in Xamarin.Forms, after filling in card number (42424242 ...) and expiry month (12), StripeView.Card getter throws ArgumentOutOfBoundsException.

Can you attach a sample that reproduces this issue?

Here is the code Im using (i dont have a stand alone test app):

using System;
using Xamarin.Forms;
using Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS;

[assembly: ExportRenderer(typeof(TestApp.Views.StripeView), typeof(TestApp.iOS.StripeViewRenderer))]
namespace TestApp.iOS
    public class StripeViewRenderer :  ViewRenderer<TestApp.Views.StripeView, Stripe.StripeView> , IVisualElementRenderer, IDisposable, IRegisterable
        private Stripe.StripeView m_stripeView;

        public StripeViewRenderer ()

        private bool FindTextInputAndBindCardPropertyHack(UIKit.UIView View) {
            var Result = false;
            if (View == null) {
                return Result;

            foreach (UIKit.UIView Subview in View.Subviews) {
                Result = FindTextInputAndBindCardPropertyHack (Subview) || Result;

            if (View is UIKit.UITextField) {
                var TextField = View as UIKit.UITextField;
                TextField.EditingChanged += (object sender, EventArgs e) => {
                    try {
                        Element.Card = m_stripeView.Card;
                    } catch (Exception Ex) {

                        // StripeView.Card returns ArgumentOutOfBoundsException when expiry month is
                        // filled in

                        Console.WriteLine (Ex.ToString ());

                Result = true;

            return Result;

        protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<TestApp.Views.StripeView> e)
            if (e.OldElement != null || this.Element == null) {

            m_stripeView = new Stripe.StripeView ();
            if (!FindTextInputAndBindCardPropertyHack (m_stripeView)) {
                Xamarin.Insights.Report (new Exception("StripeView.Card not bound, StripeView.Card property cannot be read!"), 


        protected override void OnElementPropertyChanged (object sender, System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
            base.OnElementPropertyChanged (sender, e);
            if (Control == null || Element == null) {

Stripe is no longer supporting this component.  Please check with Stripe for bindings to their native sdk's (there's also some community maintained bindings on github).
