Setting the font size of a label using one of the named sizes in xaml either via a style or via onplatform is not working.
If I set the named size directly on a label element the size is applied ok.
But if I try to use a style or set the size using onplatform the size is not applied and the default size is used.
I have a thread about the problem here: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/263653#Comment_263653
And a small repo showing the problem here: https://github.com/appbureauet/NamedSizeTest
Thank you for reporting this! Let me confirm that I can reproduce the issue with the project you linked to and I will update the report with my results.
I was able to reproduce this issue with the project on GitHub.
The following works:
<Setter Property="FontSize" Value="Large" />
However it's when trying to also use OnPlatform that the issue occurs:
I am confirming the report so the team can investigate further and determine whether or not this is expected behavior.
A workaround you can do is to set the Font property instead of FontSize:
This should work in the meantime, however be cautioned that the Font property has been deprecated so its usage may break the app in a future update.
### Version Tests
Hi Jimmy, thanks for the update.
And thanks for the workaround using the Font property.
I actually did try that, but when I tried it I used it to set multiple attributes like so:
And then it doesn't work. But only setting the size seems to work for now.
Still exist in 2.3.4 stable.
Makes styling the app pretty much impossible with a XAML style.
Can work round it with OnPlatForm and FontSize but that bug does exists still.
This appears to be resolved in 2.3.5. I ran the sample project in the description using 2.3.5-pre3 and the Labels used the expected FontSize. This works using both the old and new OnPlatform syntax.
Can you confirm that it is also working for you with 2.3.5-pre3? Thanks!
I can confirm that it is working with 188.8.131.52-pre3.
Fixed on 184.108.40.206-pre3
