Description Andrei L. 2016-02-08 13:28:11 UTC
ButtonRenderer is ignoring the minimum height set on a native button when calculating Height.

In renderer I have 

        protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<Button> e)
            if (e.NewElement != null)
                var nativeButton = this.Control;

I am checking the Minimum Height before setting it to 0 and it is 96.

I added an override 

        public override SizeRequest GetDesiredSize(int widthConstraint, int heightConstraint) 

and the Height request returned by `base.GetDesiredSize` is still 96 and the Text is not that big to fill that space, actually it takes about 1/3 of the button Height
