Description Dylan 2013-11-19 09:49:13 UTC
Noticed this after the 4.2.x upgrade. After a while, intellisense in the designer completely stops working. No errors given and no hint of any suggestions. Source Analysis was turned on and even this has stopped working. Only way to fix is to restart Xamarin Studio.
Comment 1 Dylan 2013-11-19 09:51:05 UTC
Not designer, meant in open files.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-11-19 14:30:00 UTC
I assume you mean C# files?

Please attach logs (Help -> Open Log Directory).
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-11-20 02:46:15 UTC
Strange never happened for me - I think there is an exception somewhere in the logs -> we need that.
Comment 4 Dylan 2013-11-20 02:47:15 UTC
Yeah in C# files. I'll grab you some logz next time this happens. Happens on more than three of my developer's machines.

I have verified this issue on below environments:

All Mac
Xs 4.2.4 (build 30)
Build Information
Git revision: dca4b8cd2756833329f16b7e513f325286846d4e
Xamarin addins: a70271467d292010ed315f9f1924db1ecde542d1

As this issue is duplicate of bug 16843 so I checked this issue with following code:

public static readonly Dictionary<byte, string> Keywords = new Dictionary<byte,
string>{ } 

I typed '{' and noticed that no exception is generated

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

hence I marked this as verified.
