    ohh maybe not what i m thinking

    @DamienDoumer
    @jfversluis I other words, I just want to know if anybody has a better way of doing it (Implementing some form of Item Tapped on the collection view),

    @DamienDoumer. I think I’m missing some context here? :smile:

    @DamienDoumer
    @jfversluis The collection view does not have an Item Tapped event. So I did a small hack on the Selection changed event so that it could mimic the Item tapped event, My question is: "Does anybody else have a way of implementing the ItemTapped on the collection view ?"
    Gerald Versluis
    @jfversluis
    Definitely open an issue! Although it does sound that calling the disappearing event might make sense in this context. But I can see how that changes your behavior. Weird that it doesn’t show up in the release notes. Is this for iOS? Android? Are you using Shell?
    As for the CollectionView question. There is a SelectedItem and SelectedItemChanged Command. What would be the use case for a tapped event?

    The issue xamarin/Xamarin.Forms#2208 is closed but not resolved... have seen a few people having the same issue, including myself

    @jfversluis are you online?
    I would like to test your "html label"...
    is it in some "pre"?
    Gerald Versluis
    @jfversluis
    @acaliaro there should be a 4.3-pre1 very soon which has the HTML Label

    @acaliaro
    excellent my friend
    I have tried some packages on nuget but I am not been able to add "css styles" to my html
    has your PR this feature?
    Gerald Versluis
    @jfversluis
    I have tried some basic inline css styling options which worked. But I can’t promise anything about full blown CSS stylesheets. If the packages that you have been using are also just leveraging the platform implementations of iOS and Android I’m afraid that the behavior won’t be much different. But I guess that is something you will have to find out for your specific use-case :smile:

    <span style="color: yellow;background: red">...</span>
    is it possible?

    Hi. Is https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/xamarin/xamarin-forms/app-fundamentals/triggers#Data_Triggers outdated? When we try that, there is no TargetType property, neither on the Style nor on the DataTrigger object (according to VisualStudio)

    (seems to be a bug in VS/Intellisense, builds successfully but shows as error)

    @jongleur1983 are you using XF v4.2 ?
    jongleur1983
    @jongleur1983
    @IoTFier 4.1 up to now, so maybe we should try to upgrade that (are there any known issues why not to?)

    Does anybody know how to keep a socket connection alive in an android app that is in the bakcground?
    The app is for a handheld scanner that has a “gun” trigger that scanns a barcode that is sent to the app and to the socket (to the other side). So the app just needs to be alive in the background (could be hours) until somebody scannes a barcode that is picked up by the app and sent to the socket. The app needs to be in the background because there is another app needed in the forground.
    Would I wrap (what code?) in a background service? Well I don’t quite know...
    jongleur1983
    @jongleur1983
    @sturlath I think you'd use a background service, at least on Android. Android Apps without a background service may not even run in a technical sense when their activity isn't in foreground. Not sure for other systems though.

    Hello All, when I tap on push notification when my app is background mode, how to navigate master-detail page in .net standard(shared project)?

    @IoTFier
    @jongleur1983 - I am waiting on upgrading my App from XF4.1 to 4.2 until the github issue - https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/issues/6907#issuecomment-523948279 is address
    I am not sure why in XF 4.1 you are hitting that issue around Data_Triggers. Did you a github submit on Xamarin.Forms ?

    Hey all! With CollectionView, is it possible to expand items to fill the CollectionView if they don't take up enough space to overflow? Kind of like they are in a grid with Star size.

    @IoTFier
    @davidortinau , @jamesmontemagno - how are you ?When will VS Windows Community edition will get the free version of Xamarin Profier ? I see that's available on Mac (VS Mac Community edition). Thank you.
    David Ortinau
    @davidortinau
    where do you see that it’s available on Mac? To my knowledge it’s not.

    Hey guys, IDK if this is the right place to ask but I'm looking for the tech to use in my next project which is gonna be a mobile app that allows you to map land using the GPS, but I'm not 100% sure xamarin is the best choice although I'd really like to use C#. Besides obviously the GPS readings (preferably with low level access if possible), decent 2D rendering is also important ofc, I don't really need anything advanced, just basic shapes, text and images are fine, so I could use something simpler than skia. App size is also a concern though. Any input is appreciated.
    It's gonna be opensource and nonprofit, I'm doing it to map some public parks here in Italy and then publish a digital map/guide app for the visitors to do and navigate effectively
    To download*... Mobile here

    @davidortinau , does that help ?

    David Ortinau
    @davidortinau
    does it work even tho you’re not Enterprise licensed?
    @Alan-FGR you can absolutely do all of that in Xamarin and Xamarin.Forms. I know of several apps made with Xamarin.Forms that do almost exactly what you’ve described.
    with the new Android App bundles and build optimizations, I hope app size is a concern of the past
    Jean-Marie has some recent articles about drawing on maps https://www.sharpnado.com/
    and of course you can use 100% of the native platform apis in C#
    David Ortinau
    @davidortinau
    jcmanke has been adding a lot of good Maps stuff. This one for drawing is coming in 4.3 in preview now and stable in just a few weeks. xamarin/Xamarin.Forms#6136

    Hi all. Running into an issue with the Xamarin.Inspector on VS for Mac. It appears to try and start, but then just gets stuck "Waiting for Xamarin Inspector to connect to application..."
    Working through the information in the docs. Linker setting is set to Don't Link, Simulator has network access, no log file is available at the path specified. There is no Inspector folder under ~/Library/Logs/Xamarin
    Anything else I am missing?
