Description jlafontaine 2015-02-16 10:08:02 UTC

Using a auto hiding docked Solution Explorer, removing a file from the solution fails if the dock closes.

If the mouse is used to select the appropriate remove action (delete or remove from project), Solution Explorer loses focus, disappear and the remove action silently fails.


Instead of using the mouse, pressing enter on the keyboard prevents Solution Explorer from losing focus and the remove action can complet successfully.

I am seeing this too. It's really annoying.

This seems to have been fixed in Xamarin Studio 5.8.

The null reference when trying to focus the parent window, which is the solution pad which has closed so it is null, is being handled by this commit:
