The attached sample includes a WINRT project and a WIN8.1 SL project... When you click the "SWITCH" the first time it loads the list.. Clicking it a second time removes one of the groups from the end of the list and inserts it at the front of the list. On WINRT this works fine and everything changes places. If you run the WIN81 SL project it crashes with a layout cycle detected error.
On the ViewCell if you set it to something and then set all the children HeightRequests to something you won't get an error on WIN 81 SL And it all just works correctly

Recreate layout cycle error
The error seems a little edge case also... In the attached sample I typed out the details in the LABEL at the top of the screen and then it stopped giving me the error... So I shrunk the amount of text in that label and then it started failing again
I am getting this same exception when I hit the Back button to navigate from a page to the previous page. Will investigate further, but added myself to CC list here.
Same here. Worked fine with Xamarin forms 1.5 but when updated to forms 2.0 it crashed, and only when navigating back to previous page.
My ItemsSource is no more than 30 items with a DataTemplate of only a grid, few labels and one image, so that should not be a problem memory or processing wise.
To sum it up, here's my specs:
Xamarin Forms 22.214.171.124 (nuget:126.96.36.19990)
Windows Phone Silverlight 8.1
furthermore there seems to be more people expearancing this:
Seems a lot of people facing the same problem. I do face this in my use case which is a DataGrid view to display labels in rows and columns format.
The forum link specified by @Valdimar is mine.
I have also reported this in a seperate bug thread.
But Xamarin does not seem to update anything on this about when this will be fixed. At present am totally stuck and frustrated as this avoids in updating to the latest nugets. Whereas my customers prefer to update to the latest forms version.
Updating only the samples in the customer side leads to a Method missing exception as there seems to be some changes in Xamarin.Forms.ImageSource class which is getting resolved only if I update my source to latest. This is making me neither to update, nor to downgrade leaving me clueless.
I would rather prefer to escalate this if there were an option for it. Hope Xamarin understands the seriousness of this issue and fixes it soon.
Seeing issue on UWP with "Xamarin.Forms": "188.8.131.5208-pre3"
As a workaround you can null out the ItemSource on the ListView. Perform the sort or changes. Then re-assign the data to ItemSource... In my case I was having an issue when navigating away from the view containing the ListView to an "add/delete" view. Then navigating back to the View with the ListView... So currently I set the ItemSource to Null when navigating away... Then when I navigate back to the ListView, I process any changes I need to on the Source. Then assign it back to the ListView.ItemSource ... For now this lets me work around the exception
