    Hi RavinderJangra, I did not rename the file. I already tried to rebuild and clean.

    This is my App.xaml.cs file:

    using System;
    using Havan.Mobile.Favoritos.Views;
    using Xamarin.Forms;
    using Havan.Mobile.Favoritos.Model;
    using Havan.Mobile.Favoritos.Services;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Newtonsoft.Json;
    using System.Net;
    namespace Havan.Mobile.Favoritos
        public partial class App : Application
            public App()
                MainPage = new MainPage(false);
            protected override void OnStart()
            protected override void OnSleep()
                // Handle when your app sleeps
            protected override void OnResume()
                // Handle when your app resumes

    And this is my XAML

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Application xmlns="" xmlns:x="" x:Class="Havan.Mobile.Favoritos.App">
                <Color x:Key="backgroundColor">#003366</Color>
                <Color x:Key="foregroundColor">#ffffff</Color>
                <Color x:Key="botaoGeralBackgroundColor">#003366</Color>
                <Color x:Key="botaoGeralTextColor">#ffffff</Color>
                <Style x:Key="estiloBotaoGeral" TargetType="Button">
                    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="{StaticResource botaoGeralTextColor}" />
                    <Setter Property="BackgroundColor" Value="{StaticResource botaoGeralBackgroundColor}" />
                <Color x:Key="LoginTextColor">#003366</Color>
                <Color x:Key="LoginBackgroundColor">#ffffff</Color>
                <Style x:Key="estiloBotaoLogin" TargetType="Button">
                    <Setter Property="BackgroundColor" Value="{StaticResource LoginTextColor}" />
                    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="{StaticResource LoginBackgroundColor}" />

    For which file it is showing the error. Cause it is not showing error line(red underline) for the error in image. and file name is also not visible from error window too

    This is the problem, no error appears with the red line in the file. Only the error in the error panel. When I left the mouse over the code "InitializeComponent ()" of App.xaml.cs that popup appears in the image above.

    I have the same problem in my App,xaml.cs after renaming a page... I even deleted the renamed page but still showing the same problem

    Kindly help

  • Did anybody find a solution for this issue as I am facing the same. Thanks

  • AsurAsur USMember ✭✭✭

    Unload and reload the project . That should do the trick

  • DarrenKayDarrenKay GBUniversity ✭✭

    Tried all of the above and no luck, what did work for me was force reinstalling the Xamarin.Forms packages. In package manager console prompt;

    update-package xamarin.forms -reinstall

    It does not update packages, just removes and re-adds
