Generated partial classes can trigger FxCop warnings; for example, if you reference an element in a constraint expression but don't otherwise reference that element in your codebehind, you will trigger CA1823, avoid unused private fields.  Generated files should be marked with the GeneratedCode attribute so FxCop can easily be told to ignore those files when doing analysis.

I'm working around it right now with a bash script that executes whenever I build, and fixes the import statement; but it kind of sucks, especially seeing as the only way I can get Xamarin to run it, is in an external window, so I need to close a terminal window on each build... hmmph
Comment 2 George Cook 2015-04-29 19:07:18 UTC
resolved it - by using  a custom namespace. 

	xmlns:page="clr-namespace:TwinEvents.Core.App.View ; assembly=TwinEvents" 
	Title="{Binding Title}"

please ignore this issue - perhaps it might help others if they find the ticket though :)

the shame!! sorry sorry!

Marking the type with GeneratedCodeAttribute is incorrect for a partial class: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/codeanalysis/archive/2007/04/27/correct-usage-of-the-compilergeneratedattribute-and-the-generatedcodeattribute.aspx

Generated fields and methods should be attributed instead.

Should be fixed in the next release.
