Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2015-11-20 13:25:53 UTC

When switching from a AndroidGameView to an android.view.View, the screen goes black momentarily before the android.view.View becomes visible. In this case a ViewSwitcher is used to change views between the AndroidGameView and android.view.View, but even without a ViewSwitcher, manually replacing the view, the issue still occurs.

It seems that the AndroidGameView gets cleared from the screen before the respective OnDraw() of the android.view.View is called and thus why the black screen is shown. So it seems that the AndroidGameView is not removed until the respective View switch.



There is a Thread.Sleep() call between the ShowNext and ShowPrevious to demonstrate that the screen goes black between the AndroidGameView -> android.View.View
