Testing out the new XamlApp VS template with Cycle 8 and XF 188.8.131.52-pre1. I noticed a bug which I hope could be solved soon. When you add a new Forms Xaml View, code-behind derives from ContentPage instead of ContentView.
Looking forward to using the VS previewer (when it comes out) + XamlApp :)
Are you saying that Add > New Item > Cross-Platform > Code > Forms Xaml Page produced code behind that derives from ContentPage whereas you'd like it to derive from ContentView? If so, why is that unexpected behavior?
@Chris King Not Xaml Page but Xaml View. See my original post. Xaml Page is fine, but Xaml View derives from ContentPage instead of ContentView.
Fixed, and we also took the chance to improve a bit on the template naming.
When will this fix be released? Should we expect it in Cycle 8 stable?
