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

See original GitHub issue

Getting a null reference exception when trying to initialize the carousel view. I don’t have a lot of info, because I can’t track down the source of the exception, and no amount of try-catches have been able to narrow it down.

I’m trying to use your carousel, because the only other decent option has stopped support, and is giving me too much grief.

My code for initializing the carousel is:

var carousel = new PanCardView.CarouselView()
                ItemTemplate = new DataTemplate(() =>
                    var img = new CachedImage();
                    img.SetBinding(CachedImage.SourceProperty, "ImageUrl");
                    //img.Clicked += Image_Clicked;
                    return new ViewCell() { View = img };
            carousel.SetBinding(PanCardView.CarouselView.ItemsProperty, nameof(CarouselImages));
            carousel.SetBinding(PanCardView.CarouselView.CurrentIndexProperty, nameof(CarouselPosition));


From what I can tell, the exception gets thrown sometime after the code runs the return new ViewCell() { View = img }; line.

Sorry, it was my weekend, and this is a work project. I ViewCell not being a view makes a lot of sense, I’ll keep that in mind. I guess I was thinking of it as a ListView.

I’ll try the InCourse property today and see if that helps. And I did add a tap event myself, it’s not a huge thing, just thought it would be nice to have built in 😃

The last carousel I used was intercepting all input, I couldn’t even add a tap listener to the element containing the carousel. It just wouldn’t fire. Yours seems great.
