Xamarin Forms Previewer RRS feed

    I have installed VS 2019 Community and the Preview will render the first xaml forms that I open, and subsequent forms will be stuck with "Loading Xamarin.Forms Previewer" . I really thought that this is fixed in VS2019. Is there any pointers as to where is the problem?

    VS2019 v16.2, Xamarin.Forms v4.1.0.618606

    Yes, it is just the case for Xamarin Previewer. And we apologize for the inconvenience. The xamarin development team is doing their best to address this issue and we are urging them to release the latest version as soon as possible.

    Of course, you can also try other alternate tools ,e.g. LiveXAMLand Xamarin live reload

    Hope it can help you. Best Regards.

    The Xamarin Forms Previewer is unusable and I expect MS will replace this with the new HotReload functionality that is now in private preview. Don't waste your time trying to use the previewer.
