Android N is out there and it seems like the latest version of Xamarin.Forms is not compatible with it.

Can confirm that the SearchBar does not display when using Xamarin.Forms with Android Nougat.

Did some digging and it appears to be related to the Android issue: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=221304&q=reportedby%3DDeveloper%20-has%3Amergedinto%20type%3Adefect&colspec=ID%20Status%20Priority%20Owner%20Summary%20Stars%20Reporter%20Opened&start=500

You can work around this issue by giving your SearchBar an explicit HeightRequest value.

This is a Google issue as linked above but I'll set to confirmed for now to keep track of the status of this.

Same problem here. Which would be the default HeightRequest?
Comment 6 Mikalai Daronin 2017-08-30 06:30:40 UTC
@dpedrinha 42 on Android, probably.
Comment 8 christopher 2018-03-26 09:10:32 UTC
Setting a HeightRequest does not seem necessary any longer using Xamarin.Forms 2.5.0. Tested with a Nexus 6 and Android 7.1.1.
