I am getting a null reference exception when querying my test app. But running the same code in the repl, it is fine.

See below the repl tree command and the following element I am trying to get text from:

[Toolbar] id: "toolbar"
                [AppCompatTextView] text: "Page title text"

When I run the following query in the Repl, I get that text as expected:

    >>> app.Query(c => c.Class("AppCompatTextView")).Select(x => x.Text).FirstOrDefault()
    Query for Class("AppCompatTextView") gave 1 results.
    "Page title text"

However, when running this code in my c# UITest:

var pageTitleText = _app.Query(c => c.Class("AppCompatTextView")).Select(x => x.Text).FirstOrDefault();

I get a null reference exception:

Message: System.NullReferenceException : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Can anyone please explain what I have done wrong and how to fix. Thanks.
