The NSDateFormatter class does not includes bindings for
> + (NSString *)localizedStringFromDate:(NSDate *)date dateStyle:(NSDateFormatterStyle)dateStyle timeStyle:(NSDateFormatterStyle)timeStyle
> + (NSString *)dateFormatFromTemplate:(NSString *)template options:(NSUInteger)opts locale:(NSLocale *)locale
Similarly, NSDate does not include a binding for
> - (NSString *)descriptionWithLocale:(id)locale
This looks like an intentional choice to reduce redundancy with the C# methods. But at the moment, the C# methods will not properly localize if the user sets a custom calendar type or a custom time format because of bug #1068. So perhaps it would be acceptable to bring these methods back into the bindings until bug #1068 is fixed?
The fix will likely be included in Xamarin.iOS 7.0.5 (but it's a bit too early
to say for sure yet).
I have verified this issue and noticed that NSDateFormatter included bindings "localizedStringFromDate" and "dateFormatFromTemplate"
and NSDate class included binding descriptionWithLocale
