So, I'm marking this bug invalid, as we're echoing what the underlying runtime is doing. However, I realize that isn't very helpful, so let me explain.
If you do the same thing your example does in objective-c:
You'll get the same assertion:
Now the deeper and more interesting question, is why are you seeing this. Let's take look at the documentation:
"Raises an NSInternalInconsistencyException if sent to a non-mouse event." "The return value of this method is meaningless for events other than mouse-down or mouse-up events."
Since you can send any message to any objective-c instance, and NSEvent is a base type of many events that could occur, Apple could have chosen to have "invalid" selectors, such as clickCount on an event that isn't related to clicking, act as any other does not respond message. However, Apple has chosen to throw this assert to help you figure out that you are treating this NSEvent incorrectly.
These are the only valid messages to send to any NSEvent:
The exposed C# properties are somewhat straightforward to find.
Beyond that, you need to check the type of the event and only query properties that make sense for that type.
The NSEvent API that apple exposed (and Xamarin.Mac exposed to c#) is less pleasant than many other APIs where the specific events only have properties for the valid event type.
As a side note, this also means that expanding an NSEvent inside the debugger may/will cause your application to crash. This is unfortunate, and a known issue. We're working with the XS team to fix this long term.
