Description Redth 2013-05-15 20:16:54 UTC
In the Google Android SDK Extras, if you install the In-App Billing, there's an IInAppBillingService.aidl file that gets installed.  I've tried adding this to my project as an AndroidInterfaceDefinition and it does create an IInAppBillingService.cs file, however that file has compile errors.

The compile error (4 of them) is:
/Users/jonathan/Dropbox/Code/AegisShield.Mobile/Shield.MonoDroid/obj/Debug/aidl/IInAppBillingService.cs(31,31): Error CS0234: The type or namespace name `BundleStub' does not exist in the namespace `Android.OS'. Are you missing an assembly reference? (CS0234) (Shield.MonoDroid)

Here's the original .aidl file:

Here's the generated C# file (the highlighted line - 75 shows one of the 4 similar compile errors):

If there's a workaround (maybe a fixed .cs file) that I can use in the meantime, that would be extremely helpful as I'm supposed to have this working by the end of the week.

You need "Bundle.aidl" in your project too (i.e. Bundle in android.jar is not enough), otherwise the expected "stubs" are not generated.

package android.os;

parcelable Bundle;
