Please join us on
Visual Studio Developer Community and in the
Mono organizations on
GitHub to continue tracking issues. Bugzilla will remain
available for reference in read-only mode. We will continue to work

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
The screencast at http://screencast.com/t/Vlev2cJ7 shows the issue.
The completion popup shows global types/kewords instead of the members of the object being instantiated.
You can repro it by opening the MonoTouch.Dialog.sln solution from https://github.com/migueldeicaza/MonoTouch.Dialog and then opening the Samples/DemoElementApi.cs file. Ctrl-space fails in any of the nested RootElement initializers.
The behavior was the same for collection and object initializers. Current master seems to work with the latter, the former is still broken
Ideally, the collection initializer should offer for completion only known types that can be used to populate the collection
The exact context isn't possible since these two syntax constructs can't be mixed.
I think it's a valid request that these can be mixed - and maybe a gap in the c# standard. If it gets closed or not it's another story.
But I got around 5 red unit tests out of this context :) - they're now fixed.
