Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2014-09-19 02:39:45 UTC
Xamarin Forms v1.2.2.6243

Using SearchBar crashes Android apps targeting API level 15 and 14 

Steps to reproduce:

- Open the FormsGallery solution (http://developer.xamarin.com/samples/FormsGallery/)
- Update packages in the projects (to get latest Xamarin.Forms version, etc): FormsGallery & FormsGallery.Android.
- Set config to "Debug"
- Set startup project to FormsGallery.Android.
- Set the FormsGallery.Android "Build->General" project options "Target framework" to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 14) or Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 15)
    - Android Application -> Minimum Android Version and Target Android version set to "Automatic - use target framework version"
- Build & run (On device or Emulator)
- Select SearchBar form the list

However, when we change the "Target framework" to Android 4.1 (API 16), the app works as expected

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this. To reproduce this I have followed the steps mentioned in bug description.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Download attached sample project (FormsGallery) and open in XS
2. Update packages in project and set Application config "Debug"
3. Set startup project to FormsGallery.Android
4. Set the FormsGallery.Android "Build->General" project options "Target framework" to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 14) or Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 15)
5. Set Minimum  and Target Android version to "Automatic - use target framework version"
6. Build and deploy it on device OR emulator
7. Click on 'Image' observe that its working fine
8. Now click on 'SearchBar'  observe that Application crashes.

I observed that when we set "Target framework" to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 14) or Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (API 15)  application crash when we click on 'SearchBar'. I also observed that when we set "Target framework" to Android 4.1 (API 16) the application  does't crash when we click on 'SearchBar', works as expected.

Comment 2 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2014-09-23 04:40:44 UTC
Target framework should not be set any lower than Latest. This is what Xamarin.Forms supports. Minimum version should be set to API 14.
