Description Adrian Gallero 2013-08-01 08:58:05 UTC
NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys(Object [] objects, NSObject [] keys, int count) will always insert the full objects[] and keys[] arrays, no matter what count you specify.

Steps to reproduce:
Write the following code in an even handler:

        partial void testdict(NSObject sender)
            var keys = new object[]{1,2};
            var objs = new object[]{3,4};
            NSDictionary ns = NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys(objs, keys, 1);

Actual Results: 2
Expected Results: 1

Note that NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys(NSObject [] objects, NSObject [] keys, int count) works fine.
This code:
       partial void cttext(NSObject sender)

            var keys = new NSObject[]{new NSNumber(1), new NSNumber(2)};
            var objs = new NSObject[]{new NSNumber(1), new NSNumber(4)};
            NSDictionary ns = NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys(objs, keys, 1);

inserts 1 object as expected.

Fixed. The fix will be in 6.4.2.
