Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2016-07-15 18:53:21 UTC
## Description

CarouselViewRenderer is getting linked away when building for iOS Device with "Link SDK Assemblies Only" option selected and with the "Enable Device Specific Builds" option _not_ selected. 

## Steps to reproduce

1. Download the Monkeys sample from:
https://github.com/jamesmontemagno/Xamarin.Forms-Monkeys

2. Open the Monkeys-CarouselView solution in Xamarin Studio

3. Deploy the iOS Project to a real device in Release configuration, which has the "Enable Device Specific Build" option _not_ enabled.

Expected result: CarouselView will show at top of page with image and text.

Actual result: CarouselView is not shown. Space for it is there, but no image or text. 


##Notes

tested with XF v 2.3.0.46-pre3 and 2.3.1.111-pre2. Same results. 

The CarouselView plugin is version 2.3.0-pre1 and this I believe is the only version currently released. 

Workaround is to reference the CarouselViewRenderer in code by adding this to the AppDelegate Finished Launching method:
> var dummy = typeof(Xamarin.Forms.Platform.CarouselViewRenderer);
Then it works as expected on device.
