Description Kevin Mullins 2014-07-11 09:41:20 UTC
In the iOS Designer with the design surface view zoomed to less than 100%, if the user double clicks a UIButton to create an Action Outlet returning to the design surface after dropping the wire up method in the UIViewController's .cs file causes the button to jump to a new location in the view controller.

This is especially true of an iPad storyboard and the more the user is zoomed out, the greater the "jump".

Steps to reproduce:

1) Add a UIViewController to a storyboard and create a custom class for the view.
2) Add a UIButton to the view controller above and name the button.
3) Zoom out to less than 100% (the greater the zoom out the bigger the effect)
4) Double click the button to create an Action Outlet.
5) Xamarin Studio switches to the .cs file for the UIViewController.
6) Drop the buttons wire up code into the .cs file.
7) Return to the storyboard editor and move the mouse. The button will move as if the user has mouse-down in the button and is dragging it to a new location.
8) The designer surface quickly catches up, but by that point the button's location has been changed.

It's like the design surface thinks the user is dragging the button in question for a few seconds when the user first switches back to the storyboard tab with the open design surface. After a few seconds the designer "recognizes" that the mouse isn't down and drops the button in a new location.

You can use this project to test out the above issue:

1) Open the iPad storyboard.
2) Zoom out to 50%.
3) Find the First View Controller and double click on the top button.
4) View switch to the .cs file, return to the iOS Designer.
5) Move the mouse quickly.

Just an update, this is fixed as part of https://github.com/xamarin/md-addins/tree/drag_fix.

Unfortunately the fix triggers in inexplicable random error in Visual Studio so we can't land it yet.
