Description donsyme 2013-11-30 10:46:46 UTC
DebuggerTypeProxyAttribute.ProxyName returns a simple type name like "ListProxy".

It should return a fully qualified type name like
ListProxy, FSI-ASSEMBLY, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null

Full F# code (run with fsharpi)


type List = class end
type ListProxy = class end

[<System.Diagnostics.DebuggerTypeProxyAttribute(typeof<ListProxy>, Target=typeof<List>)>]
type C2 = class end

let attr = typeof<C2>.GetCustomAttributes(typeof<System.Diagnostics.DebuggerTypeProxyAttribute>,false).[0] :?> System.Diagnostics.DebuggerTypeProxyAttribute



Expected: a fully qualified type name
Actual: ListProxy
