Added a page, rebuilt the Android project, switched to a page with invalid Xaml, and no error was displayed. Nothing rendered. 

Expected - an error that the Xaml references an invalid/unkown control.

Should see an error. No error present and not sure what this default view means.

Can you try with the latest C9 android and C9 xvs? There are no errors in the logs either.
