Description James Clancey 2017-02-28 10:41:30 UTC
Page Icon forces you to use FileImageSource, however it is improperly used on iOS.


You will notice it abuses the implicit operator to cast the FileImageSource to a string instead of using the FileImageSourceHandler.

The implicit operator should be removed from the FileImageSource to prevent this from happening

Clancey, that's a public API and would be a breaking change. Don't see how we could change that at this point. If there are bugs that result we'll just have to fix the callsites. Please talk it over with Jason if you think there's reason to push a breaking change.

This is not a public api. It's the implementation inside the internal method: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/blob/master/Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS/Renderers/NavigationRenderer.cs#L655-L683

When you said "the implicit operator should be removed from the FileImageSource" in FileImageSource.cs I assumed you wanted that API removed even though it's public. 

What is the actual and excpeted behavior?

Should be fixed on 2.3.5-pre1
