Asked On October 28, 2016 01:56 AM UTC

Hi,

I try to implement the SfCalendar in a Xamarin.Forms App with Android, iOS, and UWP. I followed the instructions from the online documentation - getting started section. On Android and iOS it works perfectly, on UWP I get the following exception when the XAML page loads:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.SfCalendar.SfCalendar_HeaderLoadedEvent(DataTemplate dataTemplate)
   at Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.SfCalendar.CalendarLoaded(Object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

SfCalendar Version 14.3.0.49
Xamarin Forms 2.3.2.127

XAML:

<xForms:SfCalendar x:Name="SfCalendar" ViewMode="MonthView" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand"/>

Code on page initialization:

SfCalendar.MaxDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(100);
SfCalendar.MinDate = DateTime.Now;

Referenced DLL's in UWP project (14.3.0.49):

Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll
Syncfusion.SfShared.UWP.dll
Syncfusion.SfCalendar.XForms.dll
Syncfusion.SfCalendar.XForms.UWP.dl

Is there anything I missed to initialize for UWP?

Another issue I found is, that the Xamarin SfCalendar NuGet Package only contains the dll's for Android and iOS, not for UWP.

Thanks for your help
Rudy

Hi Rajkumar,

I have downloaded your sample and run it. First it trapped in App.g.i.cs with the same exception as described in the initial post:



After a cleanup and rebuild the App runs and the calendar is displayed, but I still get exceptions in the event log when I run it:




Also if I do not initialize the date range of the SfCalendar then it generates the following exceptions and gets trapped in App.g.i.cs as shown above:




I don't know why there are System.IO.FileNotFoundException's, I get them also on newly created Xamarin UWP projects.

Regards
Rudy

Hi Rudy,

Query : "Resource Map not found exception"

This is an internal exception, which is raised for Localization purpose. In SfCalendar, Localization input is maintained as resource map file and this exception will be raised as it is not found and it will not cause any impacts/crash to application. So you can ignore the exception .

Regards,
Rajkumar G

Hi Rajkumar.

Query 2: "Invalid operation exception"

In the sample you have provided I commented out these two lines in Page1.xaml.cs:

            //calendar.MaxDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(100);
            //calendar.MinDate = DateTime.Now;

Then rebuild and run it. The App stops with an unhandled exception:






I have uploaded the solution.

Best Regards
Rudy

Hi Rajkumar,

I have downloaded your solution and used the assemblies from the provided DLL folder. I still have the same behavior.

I thought maybe its my development environment and uninstalled all Windows 10 SDK's and re-installed them. Still the same behavior.

Here the installed Versions:

I have the same exact problem, Version 16.1.0.24.  I have a sample solution, using a mvvm pattern.  When a calendar date is clicked, it is handled by the Handle_SelectionChanged(), which then attempts to set a property in the view model. It is the setting of the property that causes the problem.

I'm unable to upload the 13 MB solution zip file, can you contact me to get it?

This is logged using SfCalendar 17.1.0.43 when the calendar is initially displayed:

Exception thrown: 'System.Exception' in Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll
WinRT information: ResourceMap Not Found.

My app then crashes when a date is selected:

Exception thrown: 'System.NullReferenceException' in Syncfusion.SfCalendar.XForms.UWP.dll
Exception thrown: 'System.NullReferenceException' in Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll
Exception thrown: 'System.NullReferenceException' in Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll
The program '[21400] UWP.exe: Program Trace' has exited with code 0 (0x0).

The program '[21400] UWP.exe: Managed (CoreCLR)' has exited with code -1 (0xffffffff).

When using 15.4.0.20 and no other code change, an error is logged in output, but the UI functions as expected and the date is successfully picked.

Thank you for your quick response.
The problem is seen when navigating back to the prior page after selecting a date and calling "Navigation.PopAsync(true)" in the action handler method.  I have modified the provided example to have MainPage navigate to SfCalendarPage.  Clicking a date is expected to return to MainPage but instead logs the following:

Exception thrown: 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' in Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll
WinRT information: ResourceMap Not Found.

Exception thrown: 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' in Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP.dll

SfCalendarPage.xaml.Handle_OnCalendarTapped SelectedDate = 05/27/2019

Hi James, 
  
Thank you for the update. 
  
We can able to replicate the mentioned issue “Selecting a date and back prior to the page, it shows the exception” in Calendar Xamarin.Forms (UWP). Currently we are analyzing the same, we will validate and let you know the details in two business days (May 10, 2019). We appreciate your patience until then.

Hi James, 
 
Thank you for your patience. 
 
Query 1: We have fixed the issue “Selecting a date and back prior to the page, it shows the exception” and the issue fix will be included in our upcoming Weekly NuGet update which is expected to be available by May 21, 2019 and appreciate your patience until then. Please let us know if you need patch earlier.  
 
Query 2: Regarding the exception “System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException”, as per the calendar implementation for handling localization we need to add Resource file for custom string. When you are not handling the localization, mentioned exception will be thrown in output window and it is an expected one.   
 
Kindly, refer the below UG link for adding resource file in sample, 
 
We hope that this helps you, kindly revert us if you have any concern. 
 
Regards,
Subburaj Pandian V
