Description Milan Laslop 2017-05-15 07:04:44 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
- git clone git@github.com:milan11/xamarin_forms_tab_freeze_test.git
- click on "Button" - each click should be registered in Button clicked:"
- click on "List item" - each click should be registered in "List clicked:"
- go to "PAGE 2" tab
- go back to "PAGE 1" tab
- click on "List item" - PROBLEM: some clicks (some of the initial ones) are not registered
- click on "Button" - each click is correctly registered

Switching to FormsAppCompatActivity (instead of FormsApplicationActivity) solves this issue (use 2 commented lines from MainActivity.cs to try this).

Tested (and reproducible) with Xamarin.Forms:,
