When linking new ViewControllers to a tabbar controller the tabBarItem entry is not automatically generated in the storyboard xml.
Opening the the Storyboard in XCode, without the tabbar item added manually, crashes XCode. Currently Xcode seems to be the only access point to edit the properties of the tabBarItem, for example changing the image.
<viewController id="5" sceneMemberID="viewController">
<view key="view" contentMode="scaleToFill" id="6">
<rect key="frame" x="0.0" y="20" width="320" height="411"/>
<autoresizingMask key="autoresizingMask" flexibleMaxX="YES" flexibleMaxY="YES"/>
<color key="backgroundColor" white="1" alpha="1" colorSpace="custom" customColorSpace="calibratedWhite"/>
<tabBarItem key="tabBarItem" title="Item 4" id="2jI-Ux-lHi"/>
<placeholder placeholderIdentifier="IBFirstResponder" id="7" userLabel="First Responder" sceneMemberID="firstResponder"/>
<point key="canvasLocation" x="252" y="776"/>
The line [<tabBarItem key="tabBarItem" title="Item 4" id="2jI-Ux-lHi"/>] from the above example is missing when created with the Xamarin Studio iOS designer.
The crash and inability to edit this TabBarItem have both been fixed. Thanks for reporting the issue!
Well, i didn't *fix* Xcodes crash, i just made it so that we wrote the elements it expects so it no longer blows up ;)
This bug was marked as fixed for Xamarin Studio 4.0.9, which is currently in the beta channel. Try it out!
