Description Alan McGovern 2011-08-25 09:30:39 UTC
I want to write the following function:

var alert = new UIAlertView (title, string.Format (message, formatting), "OtherStuff");

When i get to here, I am offered completion for string.Format which is correct:
var alert = new UIAlertView (title, string.Format (

Once i fill in the first parameter and hit comma I lose code completion for the rest of the line:

var alert = new UIAlertView (title, string.Format (message, *Code completion is now gone for this line and cannot be activated*
