Description kissling 2013-04-11 13:23:47 UTC
CBPeripheralManager.StartAdvertising uses a strongly typed dictionary as the options argument.

CBCentralManager.ScanForPeripherals and .ConnectPeripheral still uses plain NSDictionaries. Trying to create strongly typed variants for those methods myself leads to problems as DictionaryContainer uses internal constructors.

My request is to add also strongly typed dictionaries for these methods.

Implemented in 6.3
Comment 2 Nischal 2013-06-14 02:52:06 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

X.S 4.0.8
Xamarin.iOS 6.3.6-76
Mono 3.0.11

Now the ScanForPeripherals and ConnectPeripheral methods of CBCentralManager accept a custom object (that extends  MonoTouch.Foundation.DictionaryContainer) instead of only accepting NSDictionary as an argument. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/eU8ZcCERMqM 

Changing the status to Verified.
