Description Ryan Alford 2014-02-18 11:19:42 UTC

In the Android UI designer, if you use the Property Window to set NextFocusDown, the designer uses the wrong control ID name.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a new Android Application.
2. Open Main.axml, add two EditText views.
3. Set the 'id' of both EditText views.
4. With the first EditText view selected, open the Property Window, click 'Behavior', Expand 'Focus'
5. For NextFocusDown, click the dropdown arrow and choose the 'id' for the second EditText view.
6. Build

Actual Results:

The application fails to build. You will get an error that the resource specified for NextFocusDown is not found. This is because the 'id' of the NextFocusDown element is wrong. Xamarin Studio inserts the 'id' as..


instead of 


Simply adding the '+' makes the build error go away.

Expected Results:

The designer should insert the correct 'id' for the property.
