Description smorsi27 2016-11-18 17:33:20 UTC
I really want to upgrade to the latest Xamarin.Forms version for my app but I can't because I rely on XLabs.Forms controls for my application. Their latest stable release was released over a year ago and I did bring up the issue here: https://github.com/XLabs/Xamarin-Forms-Labs/issues/1270

However, it seems like they won't resolve it on their end. I am wondering if there is anything Xamarin team can do to support XLabs.Forms 2.0.5, their last stable release? It is currently working on Xamarin.Forms 2.1.0 but I'm not sure what is making it break in the later versions. 

Thanks!

Can you try the latest prerelease (2.3.3-pre4)?

I did and it does not work. Same issues with the resources. It's about ~100 Resource.Designer.cs issues.

This issue will need to be resolved on XLabs side of things. Based on the comments in the GitHub issue linked to, updating to the pre-release version of XLabs should resolve the errors.
