Exception screen shot

I'm creating a user control in Xamarin.IOS datagrid and the attached datasource is converted to AsQueryable and am adding sort descriptions to perform sorting.

The problem i'm facing is am checking the ((queryable)source.count() ==0 ) here i have wirtten a seperate class extension for queryable 

public static int Count(this IQueryable source)
            var sourceType = source.ElementType;
            return (Int32) source.Provider.Execute(
                    typeof (Queryable),
                    new Type[] {sourceType},
                    new Expression[] {source.Expression}
similarly for orderby , elementAt ... etc this code works fine and sorting is performed while i run it in simulator but when it comes to the device am getting exception system.Linq.Queryable doesn't have the so n so method. 

But in the api documentation it has been mentioned that it has support for all this cases. This works fine in Xamarin.Android (both device/ simulator). 

I have attached the screen shot of the issue.

Please attach a complete test project we can use to reproduce this issue, the underlying code executed can depend on a lot of factors external to the source lines where the exception occurs (the actual type of 'source' for instance).

Sample to reproduce the issue.

I have attached the sample in which the issue is reproducible and i hope this might be helpful. It would be glad if am getting a fix or a work around asap.

You're using dynamic execution to call the Count method (in your QueryableExtensions class); this won't work with the managed linker, since it will not see what you're trying to do, and it will remove the Count method from the Queryable class.

Somehow you must ensure the managed linker keeps the Count methods, and this is one way to do it:

	IEnumerable<string> hack = null;
	if (hack != null) {
		Queryable.Count<string> (null);
		Queryable.Count<string> (null, null);
		hack.AsQueryable ();
