Build in Release + “.Net Native tool chain” raise exception


I've developed an UWP app where the SfDaraGrid is used to display a forms list.

As I encounter a problem on the Store app that doesn't occur under Visual Studio in "Debug" mode, I must build the app in similar conditions: "Release" mode + “.Net Native tool chain”.

But as soon as I arrive on the home page, which contains the SfDataGrid, I get several exceptions:

After the last exception has been displayed, I can't do anything, even if I click on "Continue".

I've updated the Syncfusion version from "" to "", as you suggested on other threads, but it didn't change anything. My version of Visual Studio 2015 is "14.0.2543.01 Update 3".

For the tests I have replaced the page by a default page containing a minimal part of code.

It works until a ItemsSource is defined:
<Grid Background="{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
<grid:SfDataGrid x:Name="sfDataGrid" Grid.Row="1"
Padding="0,8,0,0" />
If I add the ItemsSource and a Column, I encounter the exceptions that I have mentioned previously:
<Grid Background="{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
<grid:SfDataGrid x:Name="sfDataGrid" Grid.Row="1"
ItemsSource="{Binding CarForms}">
<grid:GridTextColumn x:Uid="HomeSfColumnSubmitter"
TextWrapping="Wrap" />

Would you have any explanation?

The same code works well in "Debug" mode, of ine the Store until the error occurs...

Has this been resolved? I am having the same issue with my current xamarin.forms app and syncfusion.xform being in debug mode.

Hi William, 
In Xamarin.Forms the custom controls will not render when deployed the application in Release Mode. You can be resolved by initializing the SfDataGrid assemblies in App.xaml.cs in UWP project as like in below code snippet. 
protected override void OnLaunched(LaunchActivatedEventArgs e) 
    rootFrame.NavigationFailed += OnNavigationFailed; 
    // you'll need to add `using System.Reflection;` 
    List<Assembly> assembliesToInclude = new List<Assembly>(); 
    //Now, add all the assemblies your app uses 
    // replaces Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(e);         
    Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(e, assembliesToInclude);
