When we run current xaml page with Live Run and start adding something, like a new label, error appears in Error List window. The error itself is fine, but Error List takes focus and we can't continue writing our code. We have to click on code editor or use ctrl + tab to switch to it. It happens all the time on every single error which makes it very difficult to edit code during Live Run.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new Xamarin.Forms project.
2. Open MainPage.xaml and Live Run it.
3. Start adding some code, for example start writing "<StackLayout", but don't add the ">" at the end.
4. Notice that Error List appears and takes focus. Focus it no longer in code editor.
I know there is option in Visual Studio in Tools -> Projects and Solutions -> General -> "Always show Error List if build finishes with errors". I disabled it, but Error List is still showing as described above. I'm not sure if this is Visual Studio problem or the extension. It would also be nice to see the errors, but without taking focus from code editor.
Visual Studio 15.5.0
Hey there! Thanks for reporting this. Can you dump out the full version history in VS 2017 for me so I can send it back.
I usually doc my error list at the bottom, but I thought that we cleaned it up to not do this. I will report to the team right now.
