I can't use FindViewById to retrieve a SearchEditText because it isn't a View:
[Register("android/support/v17/leanback/widget/SearchEditText", DoNotGenerateAcw = true)]
public class SearchEditText : Java.Lang.Object
According to the support library's source, it should be:
public class SearchEditText extends StreamingTextView
class StreamingTextView extends EditText
My best guess: this error occured, because StreamingTextView is a private class of the leanback support library?
Please try v188.8.131.52 from NuGet. The SearchEditText class has been changed to inherit from StreamingTextView instead of Java.Lang.Object.
