Description amantha@amantha.cz 2017-04-07 11:32:07 UTC
When Running UWP application (Xamarin Forms), it throws exception when Text property of <SPAN> (inside <Label.FormattedText>) is NOT set: 

            <Span x:Name="spanTest" Text="This is OK"></Span>
            <Span x:Name="spanTest2"></Span>

I want to set Text in code, not in XAML.

This does crash on UWP but not when running on Android.
Comment 3 Rui Marinho 2017-05-04 15:33:48 UTC
Should be fixed on 2.3.6-pre1
