The following XML makes the designer view go white and show a loading spinner for ever. Sometimes it will also show an empty (white) error dialog.
Xamarin Android 4.12
This XML is invalid. An ImageView can't contain a TextView. The designer should not show the spinner in this case, but an error message. I'll see why the message is not being shown.
The error message issue has been fixed. The fix will be available in upcoming releases. Thanks for reporting.
I have checked this issue with following builds:
Mac OS X 10.9.2
Xamarin Studio : 4.2.3 (build 60)
Xamarin.Android : 4.13.0 (Enterprise Edition)
Screencast for Windows : http://screencast.com/t/h4B6A0fu
Screencast for Mac : http://screencast.com/t/JpfTlbRVr11
Now this issue is working fine. Hence closing this issue.
