I was trying to implement this: (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19927935/ios-7-uitextview-link-detection-crash-in-uitableview) in my Xamarin project, but not finding the class NSDataDetector at all.

Shouldn't it be included?

Thanks in regards,

We have checked in assembly browser and not seeing NSDataDetector class. We are not sure its a bug so leaving as new for now.

NSDataDetector is a subclass of NSRegularExpression, which we've not bound because there's an equivalent managed alternative.

For link detection in C# you have a few good alternatives here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1323283/how-to-match-url-in-c
Comment 3 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2015-05-18 22:53:54 UTC
Implemented on the next release (for the sake of NSDataDetector).
