SfRotator appears only when the orientation of the device is changed

I recently tried the Essential UI kit from Syncfusion for developing ecommerce app, and on the details page of the product is the SfRotator control that only shows the list of product images when the device orientation changes. What might be wrong please?

Hi Pat Nadis, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

The mentioned issue is with the Xamarin.Forms NuGet package, you can avoid this issue by updating to the latest Xamarin.Forms version in your application. We are using Xamarin.Forms version and we could not reproduce this issue at our end. 

Also, the issue is not reproduced in latest stable Xamarin.Forms version. 

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

Alright! Thank you for your quick response. I updated to Xamarin.Forms Version which is the latest stable version my project have access to.
After my update, the SfRotator still doesn't appear until the device orientation is changed. Any other way out!!!

Have you solved this issue? It already exists in the last version:

Platform: Android

We us the SfRotator in an DataTemplate!

You can test it with your example, but without the code behind. Remove the following lines from the example, you can't have a x:Name in an DataTemplate. For selecting the right DataTemplate in the rotator you can use a TemplateSelector.

 if (width > height)
      Rotator.ItemTemplate = (DataTemplate)this.Resources["LandscapeTemplate"];
      Rotator.ItemTemplate = (DataTemplate)this.Resources["PortraitTemplate"];
