When I have SfButton in my XAML the previewer stop working with the following error, this happening on Visual Studio Mac.

Hi Almis,  
Greeting from Syncfusion. 
We have prepared the simple SfButton sample and we have deployed the sample in Visual Studio Mac. On checking the xaml design with previewer we were unable to reproduce the exception. We have provided the sample with the screenshot of the previewer in iOS. Please check the screenshot as reference from the below link. 
Screenshot: 
 
Please try our sample and check whether you could reproduce the reported issue in previewer. If not please let us know in which scenario you could reproduce the issue. It will help us to provide exact solution for your requirement. 
Regards,
Mugundhan S.

I'm also having the same issue on Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 running on Windows 10 (see my configuration at the end of this message).
I was getting the MonoTouch error whenever a SyncFusion control was added to the solution. Then I read somewhere to reinstall XCode on the Mac to install the latest version of MonoTouch. After doing that, I was prompted on Visual Studio (Windows 10) to reinstall MonoTouch because there was a discrepancy on the MonoTouch version on the Mac. I clicked YES to reinstall MonoTouch, I believe Visual Studio forced an updated on the Mac. 
After that, I started getting 
An exception occurred while rendering the control
System.IO.FileNotFoundException was thrown.
Could not load the file 'Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS'

Has anybody found a solution for this problem? The preview works fine if I use the original Xamarin controls.

I just noticed that there's a new SyncFusion update available (on 28-Apr-2020). 
After updating SyncFusion controls, I was able to render in the iOS simulator. 

To update SyncFunsion:
  1. In Visual Studio, choose from the menu Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Manage NuGet Packages for Solution...
  2. At the top, click on the Updates tab
  3. Select all packages, then click Update

I celebrated too early. It worked for a few minutes, until other NuGet Packages appeared on the update list. After updating those packages, the iOS preview was broken again.

I found a workaround. You need to use Xamarin.Forms Version 4.5.0.356 in your projects.

I posted the steps in the Xamarin.Forms Forum:
