Asked On September 19, 2017 03:14 PM UTC

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new Xamarin.Forms project;
2. Add to it the NuGet package for SfCalendar for Xamarin.Forms;
3. Add to its respective iOS project the NuGet packages for SfCalendar for Xamarin.Forms and Xamarin.iOS;
4. Add a new page to the Xamarin.Forms project;
5. Add an SfCalendar to that page;
6. Run the application - it works;
7. Open the Xamarin.Forms Previewer;
8. Open the page.

Expected results:
The page is displayed in the Xamarin.Forms Previewer.

Actual results:

I apologise for adding the stack trace as an image. It's a problem of Xamarin.Forms Previewer - it allows neither for the entire text to be visible nor to copy it.

The same happens with other components, such as SfAutoComplete.

Hi Dimitar Dobrev,

Thanks For Contacting Syncfusion Support.

Currently our controls SfCalendar and SfAutoComplete have been developed in native[Objective C] for iOS Platform and using Renderers we have provided support in Xamarin.Forms. Xamarin Previewer currently supports third party controls that are developed in C# in Xamarin. Due to this SfCalendar and SfAutoComplete controls are not rendered and exception is displayed in the previewer.

Also we are porting the sources to Xamarin platforms and the support for Xamarin.Forms Previewer will be available in our Volume 4 Release which is expected to be rolled out by end of November.

Please let us know if you have any concern.

Rabhia Beham K.
