Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2012-02-09 21:02:42 UTC
RemoteViewsService.RemoteViewsFactory is a thin wrapper around Adapter yet the RemoteViewsService.IRemoteViewsFactory in Mono for Android is subclassed with IJavaObject.

See documentation: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/RemoteViewsService.RemoteViewsFactory.html

Is there a workaround for this?

It should not subclass Adapter. First, this type is an interface (not a class) which inherits IJavaObject. Android Java API doesn't do that either. Second, there is no publicly accessible constructor for Adapter, so you should not be able to inherit from it anyways. I believe that's not how RemoteViewsFactory API is used. I googled it and found one example.
