GitHub Markdown with public comments
When the text on a Button view contains more than one line (separated by carriage return\linefeed) or text that does not fit on one line, the result is different on each platform.
On WinPhone, each line is shown, but left-justified. Any line that doesn't fit is clipped.
On Android, each line is shown, but centered. Any line that doesn't fit is automatically wrapped.
On iOS, only the first line is shown. If the first line is long, the font size will be reduced and/or part of the text will be replaced by an ellipsis.
Demonstrated by the following code:
public class App : Application
// The root page of your application
MainPage = new ContentPage
Title = "Page Title",
Padding = new Thickness(0, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), Device.OnPlatform(0,0,20), 0),
Content = new StackLayout
HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Fill,
Orientation = StackOrientation.Vertical,
Padding = new Thickness(0, 0, 0, 0),
VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Fill,
Text = "Top button - line 1 of 2\r\nTop button - line 2 of 2 is a lot longer than line 1"
protected override void OnStart()
// Handle when your app starts
protected override void OnSleep()
// Handle when your app sleeps
protected override void OnResume()
// Handle when your app resumes
