As the summary suggests this is currently missing from the latest Alpha release.


a work around that I can implement until the fix reaches Alpha would be great
Comment 1 Prashant manu 2013-11-29 05:29:52 UTC
I have checked this issue with following builds:

All Mac
X.S 4.2.1(build 1)
Mono 3.2.5

I am also not seeing UIAccessibilityIdentification in Assembly Browser of XamarinStudio.
Comment 2 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2013-12-02 11:05:56 UTC
Can you explain why and how you'd use UIAccessibilityIdentification?
Comment 3 pperera 2013-12-02 15:04:49 UTC
Attempting to use it much like what is specified in Apple documentation I linked to.

Provide a means of tagging  certain views such that an automated testing suite such as Ranorex can be programmed in a robust way to find the relevant views it needs to verify pre/during/post test.
Comment 4 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2013-12-05 17:40:28 UTC
Can you try just adding a property responding to the selector in question and see if that works:

[Export ("accessibilityIdentifier")]
string AccessibilityIdentifier { get { return "myCustomIdentifier"; } }
Comment 5 James Clancey 2014-04-11 02:42:29 UTC
Adding [Export ("accessibilityIdentifier")]
string AccessibilityIdentifier { get { return "myCustomIdentifier"; } }

does work. Is there any way we can get this added into the bindings so we don't need to subclass?
Comment 6 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2014-04-11 20:40:09 UTC
<Clancey> It turns out that is extremely useful for calabash/testcloud
Comment 7 Will Johansson 2014-04-22 14:50:07 UTC
+1 for adding bindings for calabash/testcloud, including iOS APIs.
Comment 8 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2014-05-13 08:09:23 UTC

It will be included in Xamarin.iOS 7.4.

Wrong hash, the right one is:

Comment 10 Mohit Kheterpal 2014-06-02 14:15:08 UTC
I have checked this issue and now we are getting  UIAccessibilityIdentification protocol in Assembly browser as shown in screencast :  UIAccessibilityIdentification

Hence closing this issue
