Description Kristof Bergé 2016-10-25 12:00:10 UTC
I'm trying to create an Effect and attach it to a ScrollView, but the effect is never attached. The effect is correctly instantiated and resolved to the appropriate PlatformEffect, but it is never attached to the ScrollView (OnAttached is never called). When I try to attach the same Effect in the same way to a different view (in this case a Label), the Effect is attached correctly.

NOTE: In the example I attach the effects in xaml, but the effect is the same when I try it in code-behind.

Creating the RoutingEffect:

public class TestEffect : RoutingEffect
    public TestEffect() : base("ScrollViewTest.TestEffect")
Creating the PlatformEffect (similar on iOS and Android):

[assembly: ResolutionGroupName("ScrollViewTest")]
[assembly: ExportEffect(typeof(TestEffectiOS), "TestEffect")]
namespace ScrollViewTest.iOS
public class TestEffectiOS : PlatformEffect

    protected override void OnAttached()
        Debug.WriteLine($"Effect attached to {Element.GetType().ToString()}");

    protected override void OnDetached()
        Debug.WriteLine($"Effect detached from {Element.GetType().ToString()}");

Attaching the effects in xaml:

        Text="Welcome to Xamarin Forms!"
            <local:TestEffect />
        <local:TestEffect />

Here's a test app that reproduces this on iOS and Android: https://github.com/kristofberge/ScrollViewTest

Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre2

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms and observed that this issue has been resolved with iOS and I am still getting issue with Android.

Screencast: https://www.screencast.com/t/ocyUWQtH

Application output:
Android: https://gist.github.com/Parmendrak/cf7d0094957420bf58d6b0e04c128181
iOS: https://gist.github.com/Parmendrak/ad403243bf2cf35be6c97440aad9eef4

Hence reopened this issue with respect to Android.
