Please, see attachments. In this case I tried to call function from base class. The width of autocompletion popup is too large and there is no way to identify the function currently highlighted in the popup.

I do not know exact way to reproduce, I can suggest that some functions has a big number of arguments. Let's say I have 2 mono touch functions:

void FooLarge(int i1, int i2, int i3, int i4, int i5, int i6, int i7, int i8, int i9, ...);
void FooSmall(int i);

When I try to type 'FooLarge' it automatically extend popup to include all arguments. After that when I'm trying to call FooSmall the popup didn't change size to smaller, it is still have large width. The only workaround is to close Xamarin Studio and open it again.

It is really annoying and reduce productivity.


PS. Please, try to reproduce working on UI classes. Some of the functions of these classes have really huge number of arguments.

I have checked this issue  with steps mentioned in bug description.

followed Steps:

1. Created console project .
2. Created new class with two methods one with multiple argument and one is single argument type method.
3. created object  of created class in another class and  called large and small methods.
4. I noticed that i can call both method one by one without and not getting popup issue.

Refer screen cast: http://screencast.com/t/YjZbPML626 

Hence I am marking this as verified
