Error SetValue: Can not convert Large to type 'System.Double' when using style with OnIdiom

JamesLaveryJamesLavery GBBeta, University ✭✭✭✭✭

If I define a style like this:

    <Style x:Key="NamedSizeLargeOnIdiom" TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="FontSize">
                <OnIdiom x:TypeArguments="NamedSize" Tablet="Large" Phone="Medium" />

Then I get the following error in my application output:

SetValue: Can not convert Large to type 'System.Double'

If I use OnIdiom with a numeric size, or a named size without OnIdiom, it's fine. So the first two styles below are fine, but the last one produces the error:

    <Style x:Key="NamedSizeMediumNoOnIdiom" TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="Medium" />

    <Style x:Key="NumericSizeOnIdiom" TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="FontSize">
                <OnIdiom x:TypeArguments="x:Double" Tablet="60" Phone="50" />

    <Style x:Key="NamedSizeLargeOnIdiom" TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="FontSize">
                <OnIdiom x:TypeArguments="NamedSize" Tablet="Large" Phone="Medium" />

Is this a known bug?

    Thanks although I'd classify this as a Xamarin Forms bug. We shouldn't have to create our own markup extensions.
