[Xamarin Error]:Exception in thread "main" deployment fail
After I installed Facebook SDK for Andorid. I found I cannot deploy my app in the debug anymore. I clicked the play button in Visual Studio, no compilation errors at all. Visual Studio is only freezed in "Deploying in [Phone Name]" for a little white. Then it stoped and gave out this error message,'Exception in thread "main"'. After I did a number of random search in Google, I found some people in the Xamarin Forum mentioned they need to increase the heap size to 1G after installing Facebook SDK. Finally, I increased the heap size to 1G in (Project Properties -> Android Options->Advanced-> Java Max Heap Size). Then it works!
[Xamarin Error]:System.MissingMethodException: Method 'Android.Support.V4.Widget.DrawerLayout.AddDrawerListener' not found.
After I switched my Xamarin Forms app from Normal Form Activity to FormsAppCompatActivity. This can provide more function in Material Design, such as TextInputLayout. But I got this error:System.MissingMethodException: Method 'Android.Support.V4.Widget.DrawerLayout.AddDrawerListener' not found. I found the problem is from the libraries. After I updated the latest Xamarin Forms Library in Android Project. That works!

[Xamarin] Error: AppData\Local\Xamarin\[packages]\[version]\class.jar missing
After I had installed a new component in my Xamarin project, I got an error like that: C:\Users\[username]\ AppData\Local\Xamarin\[packages]\[version]\class.jar missing.
I found the problems are caused the downloading packages are failed before. The Xamarin is not smart enough to re-download automatic.
The solution is simply. I only need to delete all zip files under Error: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Xamarin\zips and the package folder in the error message. Then I need to rebuild the project. The packages will be download again. The project will build successfully.
[Xamarin] Map not showing in Navigation Page
I am building an app with a map component. I put the Map Control on a navigation page. But I put this code on the button click event.
After the button is clicked, nothing happened. No Errors message at all.

Then that is working
