Description Todd Berman 2013-12-20 12:28:27 UTC
the withItem: and toItem: parameters are (id) in the native objc binding, which allows you to pass the object you get back from UIViewController.TopLayoutGuide. However, in Xamarin.iOS, the parameters are NSObject, which TopLayoutGuide is not, so you can't pass it into the function.

So you can't emulate:

[NSLayoutConstraint constraintWithItem:self.button

which is necessary to use topLayoutGuide with auto layout.

This fix will be in 7.0.6, which is about to be released to the beta channel in the next days.
