Description Larry O'Brien 2014-10-28 15:40:25 UTC
The method MonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueue.AllocateBuffer has an overload:

     MemberSignature Language="C#" Value="public MonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueueStatus AllocateBuffer (int bufferSize, out MonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueueBuffer* audioQueueBuffer);"
     MemberSignature Language="ILAsm" Value=".method public hidebysig instance valuetype MonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueueStatus AllocateBuffer(int32 bufferSize, valuetype MonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueueBuffer* audioQueueBuffer) cil managed"

That apparently confuses monodoc. The URL for this method is:


And tree.RenderUrl(node.PublicUrl, gen, ref mtch, null) produces:

<html><head></head><body><p><em>Error:</em> Your request has found no candidate provider [hs="(null)", id="(null)"]</p></body></html>

See http://api.xamarin.com/?link=M%3aMonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueue.AllocateBuffer(System.Int32%2cMonoTouch.AudioToolbox.AudioQueueBuffer*%40)

This is the only method in the MonoTouch.* namespaces that creates this error and the other overload (out IntPtr) works, so I've set the severity of this to "minor."
