Similar to Bug 41928 & 41572 https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41928

However those bugs are supposed to be resolved in but I am still seeing this issue in stable release:

Attempting to edit any XAML.CS code file in my project brings up red, errors on variables and items 

See this SO POST http://stackoverflow.com/questions/37709923/ambiguous-reference-inline-error-in-xamarin-forms

Started a new Xamarin.Forms project. My view (aptly named MyView) has a ListView in it, with a reference of x:Name=“myListView”.

When trying to access it from the code-behind, I’m getting an inline error

“Error: Ambiguity between MyView.myListView and MyView.myListView”,
