I add a style in my UWP application global resources:


            <Style TargetType="AutoSuggestBox">
                <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="/Assets/fontName.ttf#fontName"/>

But that will let the Xamarin.Form crash when use <SearchBar   /> in xaml of Xamarin.

I upload a sample file.

Still happens in
Comment 2 Mike 2016-07-12 03:21:53 UTC
I found it will also crash if I input some arabic character in it.(Right to left)
Comment 3 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-02-16 22:53:30 UTC
Normally what you would want to do here in order to apply the style is something like this:

<Style TargetType="AutoSuggestBox">
    <Setter Property="TextBoxStyle" Value="{StaticResource CustomTextBoxStyle}"/>
<Style TargetType="TextBox" x:Key="CustomTextBoxStyle">
    <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="Comic Sans MS"></Setter>

However, using your original style in a regular UWP app doesn't cause a crash, and appears to be due to a naming conflict on the TextBox style used for AutoSuggestBox in Forms, so it's probably worth adjusting to prevent possible crashes.

Should be fixed in 2.3.5-pre1
