Example project

The method +[UIImage animatedResizableImageNamed:capInsets:duration:] is bound as this static method in UIImage:

public static UIImage CreateAnimatedImage(UIImage[] images, UIEdgeInsets capInsets, double duration)

The first argument is an array of images, but it should be just a string. As a result the method doesn't work. Oddly, it didn't crash as I expected it to, but it just didn't work.

I've attached an example project. If you run it you will see just a white screen. Look at AnimationTestViewController.ViewDidLoad to see the code that doesn't work.

Ouch, you're right the binding is incorrect. I suspect it was an (old 2011) copy-paste error, e.g. "animatedImageWithImages:duration:" accept an array of UIImage.

We'll fix that and obsolete the old/broken API.

Fixed in master 9c49b1284ab41b3ba29a0210d99d16d7b5813c89

QA: unit tests added in the same revision (note: attached sample does not call the code, likely a wrong upload)

Real example

Oops. I was off by one when attaching a sample project. Real example attached for posterity.
