Description Dinesh 2016-12-23 11:54:58 UTC
Hello, I am impressed with the technology loading Xaml and JSON dynamically in Xamarin.Forms using https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Forms.Dynamic as described in below link.

http://www.cazzulino.com/dynamic-forms.html 

But while loading the xaml dynamically from string
but nothing loads in view (Android). Also if load JSON object from string and
set it as BindingContext, exceptions throws “System.NotImplementedException”.

Is there any code or any settings I have missed? Or is it a
bug in Xamarin.Forms version (v2.3.2.127)? and it is working fine in the Xamarin.Forms version (v1.5.0.6447).

I have used ListItems.xaml and ListItems.json from the provided example.

https://github.com/MobileEssentials/FormsPlayer/blob/master/Demo/HelloForms/ListItems.xaml 
https://github.com/MobileEssentials/FormsPlayer/blob/master/Demo/HelloForms/ListItems.json 

Here is my code to load xaml and json into the page.

`public App()
{
var page = new ContentPage();
var xaml = ReadXaml();
var json = ReadJson();
Initialize();
page.LoadFromXaml(xaml);
page.BindingContext = JsonModel.Parse(json);
MainPage = page;
}

private string ReadXaml()
{
var assembly = typeof(App).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;
var stream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("ListViewDemo.ListItems.xaml");
using (var reader = new StreamReader(stream))
{return reader.ReadToEnd();}}

private string ReadJson()
{
var assembly = typeof(App).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;
var stream =
assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("ListViewDemo.ListItems.json");
using (var reader = new StreamReader(stream))
{
return reader.ReadToEnd();
}}
`

Thanks in advance.

even if the naming is misleading, we do not support Xamarin.Forms.Dynamic
