SVG image is not displaying in android in xamarin.forms

I am trying ti display the SVG image in my xamarin.form application, there are no issues to display the SVG image in iOS but not able to display the same image in the android application.

here is my code to display the svg image
<ContentView.Resources> <ResourceDictionary> <ffimageloadingsvg:SvgImageSourceConverter x:Key="SvgImageSourceConverter"></ffimageloadingsvg:SvgImageSourceConverter> </ResourceDictionary> </ContentView.Resources> <ContentView.Content> <ffimageloadingsvg:SvgCachedImage Source="{Binding SvgFileName, Converter={StaticResource SvgImageSourceConverter}}" Grid.Column="0" WidthRequest="200" HeightRequest="600" ReplaceStringMap="{Binding BodyMapreplceStrings}" /> </ContentView.Content>

And from View Model I am binding the image as following

 public string SvgFileName
            get { return _svgFileName; }
                _svgFileName = value;



and given svg image in Resources for iOS and in Resources ->drawable

in MainActivity added following lines
var ignore = typeof(SvgCachedImage);

Is there anything I am missing?

    Hi @Praveen.B , which way used to show SVG image. Do you refer to this link?

    Thanks for the reference @JuniorJiang , I am using FFimageLoading for loading SVG images.

  • I had the similar issue and the cause was i had two files with same name but with different extension like 'demo.png' and 'demo.svg'; i don't know if u have similar cause but renaming the file solved my issue.
