Description Vincent Bellet 2013-11-28 12:42:13 UTC

The compilo or XS do not notify me that a bunch of NSNetService methods are now deprecated.

Based on iOS 7 documentation :


all those methods are deprecated :

– addresses Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– delegate Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– domain Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– hostName Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– name Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– setDelegate: Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– type Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1
– port Available in iOS 2.0 through iOS 6.1

This fix is planned to be released with Xamarin.iOS 7.0.6, which should hit the beta channel before December 23rd.

I have verified this issue and found that some methods are not marked with deprecated as delegate

Refer Screen shot: http://screencast.com/t/MMLApPDn2L 

Checked With:
All Mac
XS 4.2.3 (build 23)
Comment 4 Sebastien Pouliot 2013-12-19 10:14:13 UTC
The [Export("delegate")] is marked as [Obsolete] but that's mapped to `WeakDelegate`.

I added another one for the `Delegate` property (which wraps WeakDelegate). That will be part of a future release.
