STEPS TO REPRODUCE
- see attachments - xamarin_forms_label_test.zip
- run the app on Android 4.0.3 or 4.1.2 (the 4.1.2 emulator from Android SDK works for sure)
- click Go To Next Page
- two lines of text appear (line1, line2)
- background task waits 7 seconds, then updates Label - adds line3
- problem: line3 is not shown (height of Label is not recalculated)
Can be reproduced with Xamarin Forms 188.8.131.5242 and Xamarin Forms 184.108.40.20671-pre2
Exactly these conditions must be met for it to be reproducible:
- must be Android 4.0.3 or 4.1.2, maybe some newer, but not e.g. 7.1.1 (on 7.1.1, it works correctly)
- Label must be in ScrollView and then StackLayout - leaving out ScrollView or StackLayout causes correct behavior
- we must update the Label text later, not directly in Page2 constructor (as you can see, constructor adds 2 lines (line1 and line2) and the height is calculated correctly here)
- Page2 has to be pushed to stack of a NavigationPage - it works correctly if Page2 is directly passed to constructor of NavigationPage as the root page (that's why there is Page1 with the big button)
Occurred on a 4.2.2 emulator as well; will set to confirmed until further investigation can be made.
I'm also experiencing this issue. Labels sometimes won't render at all and it's only happening in Android 4.1. I had to downgrade to Xamarin.Forms 2.3 to get things workings again.
Tested on Android 4.1.2:
- Works in Xamarin.Forms.220.127.116.11
- Broken in Xamarin.Forms.18.104.22.168020
