Description Mark Smith 2017-10-05 15:22:01 UTC
# Steps to reproduce
1. Open a Xamarin.Android project with a custom view which requires the project to be built in order to display the design view. (I've attached one to this bug).
2. Open the design view for Main.axml in Resources/Layout
3. System displays a banner indicating the project must be built to display custom controls and has a "Rebuild" button on the right side.
4. Click the "Rebuild" button.

# Expected behavior
That the project would be built, and the banner would be dismissed.

# Actual behavior
Nothing happens. Even if I build the project directly, the banner stays and the button appears to have no behavior.
