Description Brian Chance 2013-08-12 11:01:17 UTC
When passing a lamda to a constructor with {}, the compiler crashes and indicates "Check the build output pad for details", but there is no detail.

Xamarin Studio: 4.0.12 (build 3)
Mono: 3.2.0
Xamarin.iOS: (business edition)


The first constructor has an error CS0201, crashes the compiler and does not show.

using System;
using MonoTouch.Dialog;

namespace Test
	public class SlideTableViewController : DialogViewController
		public override void ViewDidLoad()

			var x = 0;

			//this crashes the compiler, note the == AND {}
			//Error: The compiler appears to have crashed. Check the build output pad for details.
			// nothing in the output pad

			//error should be
			//Error CS0201: Only assignment, call, increment, decrement, await, and new object expressions can be used as a statement (CS0201) (Touch)
			var one = new StyledStringElement("Test", () => {x == 1;});

			//shows compiler error as expected
			var two = new StyledStringElement("Test", () => x == 1);

			//shows compiler error as expected
			var three = new StyledStringElement("Test");
			three.Tapped += () => { x == 1;};
