Description Stephen Shaw 2015-03-31 12:46:14 UTC
Here is the missing method:

This is very useful because you don't have to extend an existing objective-c object, but can provide your own comparer function.

Here is an objective-c project that shows how to use both the selector and comparator

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps given below:

1. Create a Xam.mac Unified project.
2. go to assembly browser, and search for "NSSortDescriptor" class.
3. Now search for signature for comparator i.e:  initWithKey:ascending:comparator:

I observed that signature for comparator is missing. Please refer the screencast for the same.
