BindingContext = new [NameOfContentPage]ViewModel();
=== Actual result ===
Sample creates instance of ContentPageViewModel resulting in red squigglies and the error:
"The type of namespace name 'ContentPageViewModel' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"
BindingContext = new ContentPageViewModel();

Still not fixed. I get it after doing this:
1. In Portable project Add new item...
2. Choose "Forms Content Page Xaml"
3. Click "Add"
4. Open .cs-file and "BindingContext = new ContentPageViewModel();" is still there.
This will be fixed in the next stable release of Visual Studio. Thanks so much for the report. :)
