Am experiencing the same issue in the latest version of Xamarin. When will this be fixed?
Comment 8 Evgeniy Zverev 2017-06-07 11:09:48 UTC
Same here, the issue hits me both with UWP and Windows Phone 8.1/Windows 8.1 apps.

I'm not clear on what the behavior is here that doesn't work, but it may be the same as this. I've noticed that if I add a new child (Child1) to a layout, then try to raise another child (Child0), Child1 will still be above Child0. The next time RaiseChild is called for Child0, Child0 does get placed above Child1.

I only see this behavior for UWP, not Android.
Comment 12 Nicholas Bauer 2017-08-07 07:35:42 UTC
Note: I can't just call RaiseChild twice in a row; it may require adding a new object first.
Comment 13 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2017-08-23 19:45:24 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.4.0-pre1. Thank you!
