iOS crash when setting font sizes

I have a problem setting font sizes if SfChart for iOS. An example:

chart.Title = new ChartTitle
TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
Text = "Title text",
Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(12)

The Font.SystemOfSize makes my iOS app crash - it works if i comment the line out. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Steen,

Sorry about the inconvenience caused. 


We are able to reproduce the issue in iOS Xamarin.Forms. We will fix this issue in our next service pack release which is expected to be rolled out in the end of November, 2014. However, we have provided workaround for this issue in the below forum thread,


Please let us know if you have any queries.

A workaround I've found is to use Font.OfSize("Arial", size) or, I guess, other font families might work as well.

Hi Steen,

Yes. You can provide all the platform specific font families, please refer the following code snippet,
Code snippet [C#]:
Font font = Device.OnPlatform(
iOS:      Font.OfSize ("MarkerFelt-Thin", 18),
Android:  Font.OfSize ("Droid Sans Bold", 18),
WinPhone: Font.OfSize ("Courier New", 18)
chart.Title = new ChartTitle(){ Text = " Chart Header", Font =font};
Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
