Description Falko Schindler 2016-11-26 12:27:22 UTC
The following code produces a MasterDetailPage with a horizontal ScrollView containing a simple Label. On Android 7.1 "Nougat" the Label is not rendered. Removing the ScrollOrientation.Horizontal, it is visible as expected. On Android 6.0 as well as iOS I don't notice any issues.

    MainPage = new MasterDetailPage {
        Master = new ContentPage { Title = "Test" },
        Detail = new ContentPage {
            Content = new ScrollView {
                Orientation = ScrollOrientation.Horizontal,
                Content = new Label {
                    Text = "Label",

The bug still occurs on Xamarin.Forms

I noticed that when constructing the ScrollView later, e.g. within a Button's command, it is correctly rendered.
Comment 3 Falko Schindler 2016-11-28 08:52:22 UTC
A possible workaround is to create the Content within OnAppearing of the ContentPage.

This appears to be resolved when updating to the latest support.v7.appcompat package.

Could not reproduce this bug with Xamarin.Forms and Xamarin.Android.Support.v7.AppCompat on a Nexus 6 with Android 7.1.1.
