  • Question

  • User374879 posted

    Yesterday I upgraded Xamarin.Android to on my mac, since then I get the error: No suitable constructor found for TypefaceSpan(typeface). When I upgrade upgrade to the alpha version then I doesn't get this error anymore but in this version I'm not able to deploy my app to my phone.

    If I don't want to get this error and get the app running on my device I need to upgrade clean and rebuild, downgrade and then deploy to my phone (then it works only first time). This is time consuming and doesn't look like the way to go.

    The current error:

    Anybody any idea on how to fix it

    Kind regards airkingkiller

    This is my constructor, But after some more debug I found out this issue only accure when I open a .xaml than I need to clean install vs and than its fixed till the next time I open a xaml
