Description Justin Toth 2017-05-12 18:03:39 UTC
This issue corresponds with upgrading to Xamarin.Android 7.3 and Visual Studio for Mac. Intellisense no longer works properly in axml files. Create a TextView, then try typing "android:text=". When you get to the ":", the intellisense tooltip will close and it will leave you with "android:tag:". The intellisense needs to be fixed right away, it's unusable right now in axml files, which we work in A LOT as Android developers.

This ticket can't be ignored, intellisense is completely broken in .axml files now. This is a huge issue for Android developers and needs to be fixed ASAP.

Justin, can you please include your version information for this issue? I believe this was recently fixed as a regression. The following build seems to resolve this:

Xamarin 4.5.0.486
Xamarin.Android SDK 7.3.1.2

Marking NEEDINFO until we can get exact version information and confirmation.
