When I test Action Extension template app doesn't build
Looks like template is incorrect. It calls UIApplication.InitSyncContext () but there is no InitSyncContext method. But another method with similar name exists:
public new static void Init ()

You can play with https://github.com/xamarin/private-samples/tree/master/ExtensionTest/ActionExtension

Is it incorrect template or missed method in Xamarin.iOS ?

It's a missing method in Xamarin.iOS... they replaced it with another method (not sure if it is Init() or not).

I'm waiting to hear back about what method the templates should call instead.
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2014-08-26 14:35:29 UTC
The templates are bad. `UIApplication.InitSyncContext` existed for a mere 10 minutes before Miguel renamed it to `Init`.


It will be replaced (whenever I can get back to this) with `NSExtension.Initialize ();` so hold your breath a little longer :-)
Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2014-08-26 15:36:54 UTC
The new

> NSExtension.Initialize ();

is in the newer builds, assuming you're on ios8-7.4.0 it's b5188507634cc4251319b51c82b92f612bf0e7a1

Awesome, thanks Sebastien! I'll update the templates...
