Description Tom Gilder 2016-11-25 11:56:21 UTC
Using a behavior with a StaticResource, such as:

    local:TestBehavior.ColorTest="{StaticResource MyColor}"

Results in XAML compilation error:

    "No property, bindable property, or event found for 'ColorTest' (XamlCompilationBehaviours)":

This worked in 2.3.2, but fails in 2.3.3. 

Using a value works fine:

    local:TestBehavior.ColorTest="Red"

this is not related to #47703 (47703 is not a regression).

Should be fixed in 2.3.3-SR1. Thank you!

Samantha, I have checked this issue with 2.3.3.175 and with latest forms version I am not getting any XAML compilation error which is mentioned in bug description.

But I am getting different runtime exception so I have filed new issue for the same: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=49307

Please have a look.

Comment 6 Stephane Delcroix 2016-12-08 15:29:20 UTC
Tom, note that the issue is fixed, but the Xaml in the sample is invalid.

should be 

<Application.Resources>
    <ResourceDictionary>
        <Color x:Key="MyColor">#c2d1d3</Color>
    </ResourceDictionary>
</Application.Resources>

in XF, Resources properties are unassigned by default
