I'm using TypeConverters and I noticed when I set the linker to Link all assemblies, TypeDescriptor.GetConverter fails to return the typeconverter I specified with an attribute.
Here is the code i tried
public enum TestEnum
public class TestEnumTypeConverter:TypeConverter
public override object ConvertTo (ITypeDescriptorContext context, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture, object value, Type destinationType)
Then in your ViewDidLoad, call the following
var tc = TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(typeof(TestEnum));
With the default linker option, I get the correct TypeConverter. With the Link all option, I always get System.ComponentModel.EnumConverter
Adding [Preserve] to the TestEnumTypeConverter didn't help either
The attribute is being removed. Fixed in master 5c4f362d3824943f7ba8c720ecce90a073d107bd
Adding `[Preserve (AllMembers = true)]` (on TestEnumTypeConverter) will make this work in future releases.
