Description Jean-Daniel Gasser 2017-03-24 13:54:49 UTC
Created attachment 20801 [details]
App with StackLayout's Orientation property set to Horizontal / Vertical

When put in a StackLayout with Orientation set to Horizontal, a Label control will not show multiple lines, even if the text is larger than the label and its LineBreak property is set to WordWrap.

Step to reproduce:
- Create a new Xamarin Forms App (I created mine with VS 2017)
- Code of the MainPage.xaml :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"

  <StackLayout Orientation="Vertical" VerticalOptions="Center" Padding="5">
    <Image Source="Images/Warning.png" HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Center"/>
    <Label VerticalOptions="Center" HorizontalOptions="CenterAndExpand" Text="The.NET Standard Library is a formal specification of .NET APIs that are intended to be available on all .NET runtimes. The motivation behind the Standard Library is establishing greater uniformity in the.NET ecosystem. ECMA 335 continues to establish uniformity for .NET runtime behavior, but there is no similar spec for the.NET Base Class Libraries(BCL) for .NET library implementations."/>

- Create an "Images" folder at the root of the UWP project
- Put a png file "Warning.png" in that folder
- Set UWP project as startup project 
- Start the UWP application

See the label not showing multiple lines

- Change now the orientation of the StackLayout to "Vertical" an re-run the App

See the label showing multiple lines
