When using Xamarin.Forms 184.108.40.206 pre3 and has a label with a binding and the value is null/empty, a small "dot" will be displayed as value in Android (not in iOS or UWP). In version 220.127.116.11 there is no "dot" when the value is null/empty.
Hi , can someone teach me how to fix this on my side ? i am facing this issue as well and my app is going to release in few days time. Thanks for helping !
Should be fixed on 2.3.5 stable, which is set to release any day now.
You can hack a nasty workaround by setting your empty Labels to " " (a whitespace character).
I have used following code to set button text as null. Also used xamarin.form version 18.104.22.168 pre5.Bug is not getting reproduce. Kindly suggest if I am missing anything.
[Activity(Label = "App66", MainLauncher = true, Icon = "@mipmap/icon")]
public class MainActivity : Activity
protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
// Set our view from the "main" layout resource
// Get our button from the layout resource,
// and attach an event to it
Button button = FindViewById<Button>(Resource.Id.myButton);
button.Text = null;
That's Android code and isn't testing Xamarin.Forms. Look at the test reproduction from the Pull Request to see how we are testing it.
Verified above bug on 22.214.171.1246-pre6 , working as expected hence marking this bug as verified.
