test project

OnStart and OnResume on the Application class are not getting called on WP 8.1. I made a test project and followed the Tutorial https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/xamarin-forms/windows/getting-started/phone/ to make sure, it's not a problem with my app. Tested with 2.0 and pre1.

How is this one coming along? I have the same issue.
Comment 2 Adam 2016-01-13 03:54:05 UTC
I'm getting the same on UWP (even though I know that is in Preview).
Comment 3 Rui Marinho 2016-01-20 11:51:55 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.1.0-pre1

I have just created a Xamarin Forms project, with Forms 2.1.6524.  I am uses an App.xaml and App.xaml.cs to set the Mainpage.  THe OnResume never gets called when I am using the IOS Simulator.  

Is there any update on a fix for this?

Scratch that, my bad.  

The Sample I was working in didn;t inherit from FormsApplicationDelegate.  Fixed it and it all works fine. :-)
