Reproducible project for ImageSource error

System.MissingMethodException: Method 'ImageSource.FromResource' not found.

Keeps throwing a build error of:

Error Failed to resolve "Xamarin.Forms.ImageSource Xamarin.Forms.ImageSource::FromResource(System.String)" reference from "Xamarin.Forms.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" 

I could even reproduce it in a simple project. 

Create a ClassLibrary with Xamarin Nugets version or lesser and add some code accessing the ImageSource.FromResource method.


Now create a sample with Xamarin.Forms nugets version or higher referring the previously created class library and run the sample. Note that the exception will be thrown.

I have added an attachment ImageSource_ErrorSample to reproduce this error. I have removed the packages as it consumes more memory. 

I could also see that this is already reported in the below thread, and the customer has resolved it only by updating the class library and sample both to version 2.

We suggest making sure that the versions of Forms are aligned correctly in order to avoid potential issues. Doing so resolves the issue here.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for getting back on this. 
But I hope you are aware of the Layout Cycle detected exception and the cyclic layout passes that occurs when using Binding when we update to the Version 2.0

I have reported it in the below thread:

Due to this exception reported in this bug, I have to update to 2.0. But if I update to 2.0 we are facing the "Layout cycle detected exception" as mentioned in the above thread.

No idea what to do now. Hope Xamarin could come up with a solution for us on this ASAP.
Comment 3 Stephane Delcroix 2016-12-20 20:24:34 UTC
should be fixed in 2.0 which you are using right now
