Description simon.mengelkoch 2017-06-14 09:17:15 UTC

I encountered the buggy behavior several times. Although there is always some way around this, i think this should be fixed.

i use images in xamarin forms project and load them via ImageSource.FromResource(sourceString). If i use this ImageSource in an Image, which is embedded into some kind of layout, which sizes the image, the not-sized-direction takes space equal to the images-file-dimensions, not the actual dimensions the images uses when resized.

To make this a little more clear:

I use an image of size 1000x1000 and embed it into a grid to specifie its size relative to the screen width:

<Grid >
      <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
      <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
      <ColumnDefinition Width="2*" />
      <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
      <ColumnDefinition Width="2*" />
 <Image Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Source="{local:ImageResource Folder.png}" HorizontalOptions="Center" />
 <Label Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Text="Sample Text""/>

What i expect is the row with the image to take as much vertical space as it needs to display the image, with the text in the second row below it.
What actually happens is, the row with the image takes 1000 vertical space because the images original height was 1000.
