Description Matthew Regul 2015-12-09 18:33:39 UTC

Using Forms 2.0.0 there appear to be issues related to truncation of labels within relative layouts:
- On iOS, ellipses are missing from the end of a label's text when they are put within a relative layout with "IsClippedToBounds" set to true and LineBreakMode is set to "TailTruncation" (see the attached "iOS_Label_Issue.png").

- On Android, labels are spilling over a relative layout if the labels RelativeLayout.XConstraint is set even if the "IsClippedToBounds" is set to true (see the attached "Android_Label_Issue.png").

- There seems to be some further inconsistency between the two platforms. If the RelativeLayout.XConstraint is not set, the labels are truncated on Android but the labels are not truncated on iOS. Which is the correct behavior?
