Asked On May 19, 2019 05:14 PM UTC

I have several similar pages, each page using a different instance of the same ViewModel. These pages are stored in an ObservableCollection.  Each of these pages has a Segmented control looking and acting like a switch:

  <sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl Color="{Binding SegmentControlColor}"
                            x:Name="segmentedControl" CornerRadius="13"
                            SegmentHeight="25"
                            SegmentWidth="20"
                            BorderThickness="0"
                            WidthRequest="25"
                            VisibleSegmentsCount="2"
                            ItemsSource="{Binding SegmentedList}"
                            FontIconFontFamily="{StaticResource fontfamily}"
                            SegmentPadding="0"
                            SegmentCornerRadius="13"
                            DisplayMode="Image">
                    <sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl.Behaviors>
                        <behaviors:EventToCommandBehavior EventName="SelectionChanged" Command="{Binding ChecklistStateChangedCommand}" Converter="{StaticResource SelectionChangedEventArgsConverter}"/>
                    </sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl.Behaviors>
                    <sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl.SelectionIndicatorSettings>
                        <sfCheckbox:SelectionIndicatorSettings x:Name="indicatorSettings"
                                            Color="{Binding SegmentIndicatorColor}"   
                                            StrokeThickness="3"                                                      
                                            CornerRadius="13"
                                            Position="Fill">
                        </sfCheckbox:SelectionIndicatorSettings>
                    </sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl.SelectionIndicatorSettings>
                </sfCheckbox:SfSegmentedControl>

In the ViewModel I have the following properties:
      private Color _segmentControlColor;
        public Color SegmentControlColor { get { return _segmentControlColor; } set { _segmentControlColor = value; OnPropertyChanged();  } }
        private Color _segmentIndicatorColor;
        public Color SegmentIndicatorColor { get { return _segmentIndicatorColor; } set { _segmentIndicatorColor = value; OnPropertyChanged();  } }

And Methods
 private async void ChecklistSelectionChanged(EventModels.SelectionChangedEventArgs eventArgs)
        {
            if (eventArgs.Index == 0)
            {
                SegmentControlColor = Color.FromHex("#BADAF6");
                SegmentIndicatorColor = Color.FromHex("#007DEE");
            }
            else
            {
                SegmentControlColor = Color.FromHex("#E4E4E4");
                SegmentIndicatorColor = Color.FromHex("#C2C1C1");
            }
        }

When I navigate to one of the pages, move the SegmentedControl indicator to the other selection(toggle the switch), then navigate away from that page to another and toggle that pages switch to the other selection, THEN move back to the original page and move the SegmentedControl indicator(toggle switch) again, I get a crash with the following stacktrace:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

If I remove this binding, and say set it to a static color the issue goes away. 
<sfCheckbox:SelectionIndicatorSettings 
                                            Color="{Binding SegmentIndicatorColor}"

---- Change To and problem goes away---
Color="Red"

So I know it's in issue with Binding to the Color  property of the SelectionIndicatorSettings.

I know this is a complex scenario,  and I can't share the complete solution, and I couldn't easily re-create it in a sample solution.  I know it's a longshot, but hopefully you can look at the stacktrace and come up with a solution.  I think I can work around it now by using an action from my viewmodel to access the view codebehind and change the color of the indicator directly, but don't want to keep that long term.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi John, 
 
Greetings from Syncfusion.  
 
We have prepared a sample to replicate the issue based on the provided code snippet, but we are afraid, that we are not able to reproduce the issue at our end. The sample we tried can be downloaded from the below location. 
  
  
Since we are not aware of your exact application scenario, we were not able to reproduce this at our end, can you please revert us by modifying the sample based on your application along with replication procedure. This will be helpful for us to provide you better solution at the earliest.

I've updated the sample to expose the issue.  The updated solution is attached.

Here is the sequence of events to recreate the issue:

1. Unzip the Solution
2. Load solution into vs 2019
3. Set GettingStartedButton.Android project as startup project.
4. Run (Debug) application in emulator.
5. Page 1 will load, toggle the segmented control.
6. Click the >> button to navigate to page 2.
7. Toggle the segmented control on page 2.
8. Click the << button to navigate back to page 1.
9. Toggle the segmented control on page 1 again.
10. An exception is thrown.
