Description Matthijs Koopman 2013-11-08 03:41:22 UTC
When trying to save settings via the Xamarin Studio Project Settings editor that will be stored in the info.plist that is read only at that moment xamarin studio will show up a crash report.

Step to reproduce:

1. Make sure the info.plist file is read only
2. Edit some settings that will be stored in the info.plist file for you iOS app
3. Click OK

>> Xamarin studio will now come up with a crash report dialog and the settings wont be saved.

it doesn't crash, it just shows an exception dialog
Comment 2 Matthijs Koopman 2013-11-08 17:18:01 UTC
Well allright, but it's also not saving.
And sometimes it actually does crash, I would expect a dialog asking me if I would like to make the file writable.

Mike: how does the text editor normally handle read-only files? And where can I find the code?

Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2013-11-09 00:30:19 UTC
SourceEditorView.cs:203 - ReadOnlyCheckDelegate (but that's not from me)
Comment 6 Mike Krüger 2013-11-09 00:31:28 UTC
ah forget about the ReadOnlyCheckDelegate - it's not important in your case.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

XS 4.2.3(build 146)76e7c7f6ca0e59052f2bb29f8179313510977377

Now when we make changes in read-only info.plist file then it ask to convert it in writable and save it without any error.
