Since adding the Telerik date picker control - we are getting an intermittent error:

 

System.ObjectDisposedException: Cannot access a disposed object. Object name: 'Android.Widget.PopupWindow'.

 

Call Stack below:

 

JniPeerMembers.AssertSelf (Java.Interop.IJavaPeerable self)
JniPeerMembers+JniInstanceMethods.InvokeVirtualVoidMethod (System.String encodedMember, Java.Interop.IJavaPeerable self, Java.Interop.JniArgumentValue* parameters)
PopupWindow.set_ContentView (Android.Views.View value)
RadPopup.ClearAndroidContext ()
RadPopup.UpdatePopupContext ()
RadPopup.OnPlacementTargetRendererChanged ()

PopupBase+<>c.<AttachWeakEventListenerForPlacementTargetPropertyChanged>b__99_0 (Telerik.XamarinForms.Primitives.PopupBase listener, System.Object sender, System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs eventArgs)
WeakEventListener`3[TListener,TEventSource,TEventArgs].OnEvent (System.Object sender, TEventArgs eventArgs)
(wrapper delegate-invoke) <Module>.invoke_void_object_PropertyChangedEventArgs(object,System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs)
BindableObject.OnPropertyChanged (System.String propertyName)
Element.OnPropertyChanged (System.String propertyName)
BindableObject.ClearValue (Xamarin.Forms.BindableProperty property, System.Boolean fromStyle, System.Boolean checkAccess)
BindableObject.ClearValue (Xamarin.Forms.BindableProperty property)
Platform+<>c__DisplayClass45_0.<Cleanup>g__DoCleanup|0 ()
Platform.Cleanup (System.Collections.Generic.List`1[T] viewsToRemove, System.Collections.Generic.List`1[T] renderersToDispose)
Platform.SetPage (Xamarin.Forms.Page newRoot)
Platform.Dispose ()
FormsAppCompatActivity.OnDestroy ()
Activity.n_OnDestroy (System.IntPtr jnienv, System.IntPtr native__this)
(wrapper dynamic-method) Android.Runtime.DynamicMethodNameCounter.8(intptr,intptr)

 

This is within the dispose method of what I assume is the telerik control.

I'm not sure if the IsVisible is what's jamming me up - it's a generic page that either is text based but if the type is a date - I swap out which one is visible.

 

Any input or thoughts are appreciated on this type of error.  It appears that it's been a common one in the Xamarin history.

Hi Brad,

Could you please send us a sample repro project with this issue, so we can test on our side the exact setup you have. The dev team is researching the case and we want to be sure we have the complete picture of the behavior. 

I look forward to your reply

And yes - I can repro it - but the visibility is the main issue.

Hello Brad,

Your suspicion is likely correct. In Xamarin.Forms on Android, when you toggle IsVisible to false, it actually gets removed from the visual tree. This is an unfortunate side effect of the way the framework handles things and is not something we can prevent.

That being said, I have opened a Feedback Portal for the team to research ways around this [Android] Prevent Dispose Exceptions when IsVisible is False (telerik.com).

Moving Forward

This problem is why we recommend you never data bind to anything that is being dynamically being added/removed from the visual tree.

For example, this KB article explains why you can run into exceptions when using a data bound control inside the RadBusyIndicator Data bound controls inside busy indicator raise exception when busy state is changed | Telerik UI for Xamarin (although you're using a different UI control, the same concept applies. So, it's worth reading that article to understand the implications).

Options

Now, onto how you can avoid this. Yes, you want to avoid removing it from the visual tree or time the logic differently so that you wait long enough on both side of visibility change.

I have a couple suggestions you can play with:

Option 1 - replace IsVisible with another Technique (recommended)

You can avoid removing the DateTimePicker from the visual tree by using Opacity and InputTransparent

 

// Makes the UI element completely transparent.
MyPicker.Opacity = 0;

// Although the elelement is transparent, the user's mouse/touch gesture are still going to be intercepted by the invisible control. To fix this, set
MyPicker.InputTransparent = true;

That code effectively does the same thing as IsVisible=False, but still leaves the objects in the visual tree to maintain any data bindings or other required objects.

Option 2 - Use separate pages for different editors

You could go one step back in the app lifecycle and do the check for string or DateTime before navigating. for example:

private void NavigateToEditorPage(object propertyToEdit)
{
    if (propertyToEdit is DateTime)
    {
        // navigate to the page that has the DatetimePicker editor GUI
        Navigation.PushModalAsync(new DateEditorPage(propertyToEdit));
    }
    else
    {
        // navigate to the page that has the string editor GUI
        Navigation.PushModalAsync(new TextEditorPage(propertyToEdit));
    }
}

> This might be a bit heavy handed for just a couple UI control differentiation, but is a reusable option (you can reuse those pages for multiple purposes). Additionally, you can encapsulate the logic for each editing UX within the individual modals.

Wrapping Up

I hope this information helps you consider alternatives and find a solution.

You rock - I've been testing it and it looks ok.  That makes quite a bit of sense.
