CheckBox doesn't change visual state when updated from ViewModel

Hi all.
I have a CheckBox binded to value IsInheritedMarkup in ViewModel. After the data loaded I want to read a new value from property. For this I call


But the CheckBox stays shown as checked always even if IsInheritedMarkup=false;

So, as I see the CheckBox cannot redraw itself when updated from ViewModel.
But! All works properly with Switch. When the value is false Switch is toggling to false (see screenshots).

<!--<Switch IsToggled="{Binding IsInheritedMarkup, Mode=TwoWay}" VerticalOptions="Center"/>-->
<CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding IsInheritedMarkup, Mode=TwoWay}" VerticalOptions="Center"/>

Is this a bug with CheckBox?

    I tested it with a simple page but it worked as expected:

    I attached it here and could you share your repo so that I could test this issue with the same environment as yours.

    Thanks for response.
    In sandbox CheckBox works as well. I need more time to investigate my project on this problem.
