Description Magesh Kumar 2017-02-07 04:19:43 UTC
Created attachment 19744 [details]
I have attached the sample for your reference.

I have written custom view code for RadioButton in PCL project and renderer code in Android project.
I have a text property in PCL. I want to print the value of that text property using reflection in render. 
Everything works fine if linking is none. But if i change linking to sdk and user assemblies, it throws Get method not found for Text property exception.
I have attached the sample for your reference.
I have tried the below solutions:
1. Mark class members with [Preserve]
2. Mark an entire class with [Preserve(AllMembers=true)]
3. Mark an entire assembly with [assembly:Preserve].
4. A block of code so that the linker believes that the type is used, while preventing the block of code from being executed at runtime.
#pragma warning disable 0219, 0649.
#pragma warning restore 0219, 0649.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am confirming this report since I can reproduce the issue with the attached project. However, let me look into this some more to determine whether this is a bug with Forms or Xamarin.Android instead.

Hi @Jimmy Garrido

Am facing the sample problem. Any update on this? 
Any ETA when the issue will be fixed? Or is there any workaround to get rid of this?
