Using MobileCenter features in Xamarin Live causes strange exception:
On Android V1.0.439
not a widening conversion
Parameter name: value (ArgumentException)
On iOS V1.0.402
Object of type 'NInterpret.InterpretedObject' doesn't match target type 'Foundation.NSObject' (TargetException)
Code to reproduce:
public partial class App : Application
public App ()
MainPage = new TestApp.MainPage();
protected override void OnStart ()
// Handle when your app starts
typeof(Analytics), typeof(Crashes), typeof(Distribute));
Workaround is to do some conditional compilation to not start if in the live player mode. We are working with the mobile center team on this, but that is my current recommendation.
I am seeing the same error on the Chapter 13 ImageBrowser example in Creating Mobile Apps using Android. There is no code in the OnStart method.
Same with App Center just for reference
Can you elaborate on the Chapter 13 ImageBrowser question? There is no code in the OnStart method.
