Several SfTextInputLayouts inside a FlexLayout -> Exception: "Layout cycle detected. Layout could not complete."

this will throw  Microsoft.UI.Xaml.LayoutCycleException   -> message:  Layout cycle detected. Layout could not complete.

If you replace the FleyLayout with a StackLayout for example it works.

In order to be flexible in the layout depending on the appliaction width I want to be a

<FlexLayout Wrap="Wrap"

                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Category" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.Category}" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Name" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.Name}" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Duration" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.Duration}" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Eta" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.Eta}" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Progress" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.Progress}" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                    <sfCore:SfTextInputLayout Hint="TimestampUtcCreated" ContainerType="Outlined" IsHintAlwaysFloated="true" WidthRequest="500" >
                        <Entry Text="{Binding SelectedTask.TimestampUtcCreated}" IsReadOnly="True"/>

the  "SelectedTask" Class looks like this

public sealed partial class BackgroundTask : ObservableObject
    private string category;
    private string name;

    private TimeSpan eta;
    private TimeSpan duration;

    private double progress;
    private ConcurrentStack<string> messages;

    public DateTime TimestampUtcCreated { get; set; }
