repro solution

See attached repro solution using Xamarin.Forms.

If I set IsVisible=false directly on the MapboxView, no error occurs.
If I wrap the MapboxView in a ContentView and set IsVisible=false on the parent instead, the error occurs.

This DOES NOT repro on the Visual Studio Emulator for Android 7" KitKat (4.4) device.
This DOES repro on a real Amazon Kindle Fire HD running Fire OS

Java.Lang.IllegalArgumentException: width cannot be negative.

Set the MapboxView's size to (0,0) instead of hiding it.

In XAML, looks like this:


The horizontal/vertical options ensure the view does not get stretched to fill its parent (thus ignoring the width/height requests).
Comment 2 Jon Dick 2016-01-28 17:33:35 UTC
Thanks for posting back your workaround.  My suggestion was going to be something similar, since Forms is probably doing something the native view does not expect.

Glad you worked around it!
