Non-engineering team preliminary quick review
(See https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/troubleshooting/questions/howto-file-bug/ for general reference.)
## Suspected to be a regression or a problem with a new feature?
Uncertain. This issue is on the pre-release/non-stable builds of Xamarin tools
## Specific to one particular project, development computer, or target mobile device?
Uncertain, however the customer noticed this issue with the Xamarin.Forms shared project
## Includes clear steps to reproduce the problem?
## Considers the relevant log files for the part(s) of the process where something goes wrong (IDE editing, MSBuild building, deploying, launching, attaching the debugger, an in-app error, or something else), and has them attached?
Yes, includes screenshots, logs and version information
## Already took up time for many users?
Unclear. This is the only report I have seen for this issue.
## Makes development (a) difficult, impossible, or potentially hazardous, (b) moderately inconvenient, or (c) mildly inconvenient for users?
For non-xaml developer, I consider this would be a moderately incovenient
After reproducing the issue, could you attach to this report the full directory/file listing of the solution folder i.e.:
I have tried multiple times with Latest 2017 Preview Build , Link -https://gist.github.com/ganorkargaurav/a1cb93ca0047c86143e07a458aea1c92
I was unable to reproduce this issue on the latest build.Maybe Somehow the issue might have resolved.
Still if you need for further debugging i have attached the solution folder.But i think we can resolve this bug.
