The source file that does not show completely in Xamarin editor
I dont know how this came about - because all I did, was copy the content of a source file to clipbaord (becuase I was going to delete the file) - paste it into TextPad, then delete the file in Xamarin, create a new C# file, and paste it back in... but only the first few lines of text appeared!!
So, I went back to TextEdit, and just saved the content over the top of the source file that Xamarin had open.
Xamarin asked me if I wanted to reload, I said yes, but still, only half the content was visible.
Here is the file (attached)
What version of Xamarin Studio? Do you have a screenshot?
fixed - thanks for the file, without it it wouldn't have been possible.
I mark it as high - even if it's unlikely that this happens I consider it as a critical bug.
(IDEs shouldn't eat code - ok technically in that case the code isn't eaten - it's just put into the stove)
Note: that requires mcs patches as well.
Sorry - only just got back online now!
I did try making a video - but my Mac is refusing to comply ;) Good times.
Great to hear it is fixed. Thanks team!
I have checked this issue with following builds:
X.S 4.2.3(build 127)
Now I am getting full code when paste into new file. This is the screncast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/wnui3OOiaco
