Comment 1 Alan McGovern 2013-07-30 10:47:53 UTC
This might be expected, I believe all properties in the iAD Banner have been deprecated as of iOS 6 and so are not user settable anymore. We *may* need to support them anyway in the designer but I doubt this is a blocker. We should review the apple documentation on this.
Comment 2 Jérémie Laval 2013-07-30 12:23:44 UTC
At the time that was a conscious decision.

Now, in that case the issue isn't that the property panel is empty (it would show a message) but that ProxiedADBannerView has an empty class hierarchy. Is that expected?
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2013-07-31 00:39:27 UTC
Nothing should have an incorrect class hierarchy. We should definitely fix that.

Maybe we should look into a more automated way of detecting this as part of our test suite? Could we throw an exception in the parser every time we have a ModelObject with no class hierarchy, and also throw an exception if the class hierarchy contains any types which inherit ModelObject (as that would be wrong)?
Comment 4 Alan McGovern 2013-08-19 14:17:13 UTC
Fixed, with tests.
