Xamarin Android on Visual Studio Saving axml layouts no longer works. RRS feed

  • Question

    There is a similar issue on the forum which points out the Designer exception.

    Although, in my case, the problem occurs when I am trying to save a layout that I previously edited in the Source tab. Whenever I try to save, those message appears.

    One for asking me if I want to overwrite the actual .axml that I just modified. Seems odd to me. Then if I click on Yes, I get the following error "Microsoft Visual Studio - Connection Closed" and the file doesn't appear to be saved.

    Still, I can close it without saving and reopen it, and my changes have been applied to the file. However, I found it annoying to have to executes those steps in order to save a tiny modification.

    Anyone having the same issue?

    I have the exact problem. I´ve been googling and I´ve seen there is a bug already logged regarding the designer.


    Hopefully this gets fixed.

    Sorry forgot to post back, but there is a workaround released: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/14344/ The patch works fine I installed it.

    Good luck.
