Description Chris Hamons 2017-06-27 18:11:03 UTC
This code errors during compliation

 delegate bool TestCompletionHandler (NSError error);

    [Mac (10,13)]
    [BaseType (typeof(NSObject))]
    interface AsyncTest
        [Export ("foo:")]
        void DoIt (TestCompletionHandler completionHandler);

but we don't support async delegates returning non-void.

I've also filed a documentation bug here https://github.com/xamarin/documentation/issues/2329
