Stuck on an issue?

I’m pretty sure I discovered why my iOS project wasn’t rendering but my Android was.

My Animation in the XAML was set as a Binding (See Below). Once I changed it to the filename vs. setting it after it seems to work. I had to remove the Xamarin.Forms.iOS nuget and copy and paste the Renderers for the platform. But now its working.

<customRenderer:AnimationViewLottie VerticalOptions="StartAndExpand" HorizontalOptions="CenterAndExpand" x:Name="animationView" Animation="{Binding AnimationResource}" BackgroundColor="Transparent" WidthRequest="200" HeightRequest="200" Loop="True" AutoPlay="True"/>

ok, I have finally nailed it - in iOS project of Forms app you need to call:


just before

LoadApplication(new App());

I haven’t seen it documented anywhere. Also at least for my example code HorizontalOptions and VerticalOptions of AnimationView element have to be set to FillAndExpand or nothing is shown (seems like a bug to me).

I’m having the same issue, I’ve tried with and without extension. From XAML and code. Also with a little delay (Allowing all the screen to full charge), in fact, I don’t have lucky.

My final try is initiating Lottie from native iOS project and all was correct.
