Description IZILABS Software 2017-04-12 15:08:54 UTC
Binding with nested class does not working on XAML.


public static class Car
    public static class Wheel
        int value = 20;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Grid xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"

  <Label FontSize="{x:Static LibStatic:Car+Wheel.value}" />


I'm gettting the error "Type Car+Wheel not found in xmlns clr-namespace:com.car.Lib;assembly=com.car.Lib"

this isn't a Binding, it's a reference to a static path. Also, `value` isn't public. But I get the idea.

Used x:Static with nested class to set text of a lable.Verified on xamarin version

code in xaml

           Text="{x:Static local:Car+Wheel.value}"/>

code in xaml.cs

public static class Car
        public static class Wheel
            static string value = "20";
