(I'm sorry for my crappy english I'm French)
Hello , I have an issue with ImageRessources from Xamarin.Forms on my MainPage.xaml.g.cs InitializeComponent, on the line this.LoadFromXaml(typeof(MainPage));

i have this exeption :
'System.MissingMethodException' in Xamarin.Forms.Xaml.dll
Method not found: 'Xamarin.Forms.ImageSource Xamarin.Forms.ImageSource.FromResource(System.String)'.

when i delete this line : from my MainPage.xaml i have no problem but i need this line.

I have this exception problem only on UWP and not on iOs or Android

Thank you for your time.

    Do you have included the MarkupExtension for ImageResourceslike this one?

        public class ImageResourceExtension : IMarkupExtension
            public string Source { get; set; }
            public object ProvideValue(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)
                if (Source == null)
                    return null;
                return ImageSource.FromResource(Source);

    Yes i have ;)

    It's work fine on android and ios

    Strange, I load Images from my resource on UWP without problem. I also had problems with adding a UWP-Project to my existing project. So I created a new solution, which automatically adds now a UWP-Project and added all my PCL-Projects to this solution and it worked.

    Ok i'll try that, thank you for you help

    Just for information what type of project did you create (Cross-Platform/BlankApp(Xamarin.Forms Portable) or Shared or Native Portable or Native Shared ?

  • ThomasBurkhartThomasBurkhart DEMember ✭✭✭✭

    For UWP at this time only Xamarin.Forms Portable works.

    Ok Thanks for you help ;)

  • RobinDelageRobinDelage FRMember

    You added all your projects and override those who are created automatically ?

  • ThomasBurkhartThomasBurkhart DEMember ✭✭✭✭

    Actually I copied the platform specific parts into the automatic created, so make sure every works

  • RobinDelageRobinDelage FRMember

    Ok thank you i'll try this afternoon

    Change the line to include a second parameter - this works for me in debug and release modes.

    var imageSource = ImageSource.FromResource(Source, Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly());
