Description Alessandro 2015-02-06 16:48:34 UTC
I've a Label labelTempoDiStampa = new Label();

I set a bind for TextProperty, with string Format:

labelTempoDiStampa.SetBinding (Label.TextProperty, "TempoDiStampa",stringFormat: "Tempo di stampa: {0}");

the result is a labelTempoDiStampa with "1" instead of "Tempo di stampa: 1"

In Forums no one have answer to this situation
Thanks

Should be fixed in 1.3.5-pre1
Comment 4 Rajneesh Kumar 2015-02-18 05:38:57 UTC
I have checked this issue with the following build:

Xamarin.Forms.1.3.5.6333-pre1
Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2013
Version 12.0.30723.00 Update 3
Microsoft .NET Framework

Now this issue is working fine with Xamarin.Forms.1.3.5.6333-pre1. I observed that the result is a labelTempoDiStampa with "Hi: John Doe". Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/dmiUguJUdKUG


This issue has been fixed hence I am closing this issue.

Comment 6 Eric Maupin 2015-05-27 17:46:05 UTC
I've tested the given sample app against the current version and this issue appears to be fixed. If you have a case where it is still not working, please attach a small reproduction demonstrating this.
Comment 7 PJ 2015-12-02 00:44:03 UTC
Eric was unable to reproduce, so this could be NORESPONSE or NOT_REPRODUCIBLE, choosing the latter.
