In a Xamarin University course (AND102) we show the user how the app will crash if we try to launch a phone call action intent without having the uses-permission to make phone calls in their app manifest. When showing this exception occur, I get no details on the crash, just a big gray dialog. There is a marker at least pointing to the line where the exception occurred, and you can find the exception printed out in the debug window, but it is not showing exception details as expected.
You find details on this issue posted on the forum with no resolution:
While that user was using VS2012, I am using VS2013, however the issue is the same.
To recreate the issue, add a button and button handler, call this code (without adding any permissions) and see that the exception popup matches the photo in the forum thread:
// make phone call
var callIntent = new Intent(Intent.ActionCall);
callIntent.SetData(Android.Net.Uri.Parse("tel:" + translatedNumber));
I've managed to replicate this. Trying to figure out how to fix it.
Fixed in XamarinVS/master/948f1da156
