Hover-over debugger is confused
When inspecting variables or properties in the debugger (In Visual Studio) that have the same as a class the debugger gets confused and simply shows that it is a class, instead of the details of that variable or property.
An example of where this often happens is inside Custom Renderers where the current element being rendered is stored in the property 'Element'. Which has the same name as 'Xamarin.Forms.Element', as you can see in the screenshot. The Locals inspector however does have the correct value for 'Element' which is in this case a 'Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.IVisualElementRenderer'.
You may think it's related to the fact that IVisualElementRenderer is a subclass of Xamarin.Forms.Element, but that is unrelated to the problem. The same thing happens if I make a property named 'Buffer' for example, which can be of type int, then it will still grab 'System.Buffer' inside the inspector.
