Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2015-10-20 01:48:10 UTC
Visual Studio fails to build/show the Intellisense after installing the Xamarin for VS Alpha Channel 6 (v4.0.0.1566-cycle6+5abb0de).
Also, it hangs time-to-time hands with message 'Waiting for try to complete parse'

Comment 3 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2015-11-20 13:53:58 UTC
Adding the current workaround:

1. Open the solution directory in File Explorer
2. Delete the .suo file (before opening the solution in VS)
3. Show hidden files (option is in the ribbon) and delete the .vs folder (VS 2015 only).
4. Open the solution in VS.
5. Don't make any changes to the solution once it is loaded.
6. Open and close any XAML files without making any changes or typing anything.
7. Close the solution and re-open it.
Comment 4 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2015-11-20 13:57:06 UTC
Note: this is a dupe of private internal bug #34023and has to do with Forms XAML Intellisense.
Comment 5 Jatin 2016-01-14 10:55:47 UTC
As per comment 2 and comment 4, this issue is duplicate of bug 34023.
So, I have checked bug 34023 and able to reproduce it at my end.

Here is the screencast regarding same: http://www.screencast.com/t/oYWFWn9B

Hence, I am changing the status of this issue as confirmed.

Comment 6 Daniel Cazzulino 2017-04-06 21:54:20 UTC
Could you verify this still happens with the latest version of Xamarin and Visual Studio?

We have switched to using the built-in XAML language service in VS2015+, which works much better and should solve these issues.
Comment 7 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2017-04-10 18:54:19 UTC
I can not reproduce this issue when creating a new Xamarin Forms PCL or Shared solution.  

However using the steps to reproduce from bug #34023 , I am still able to reproduce this issue. I will update that bug report to reflect this finding.
