Description Matthew Leibowitz 2015-08-30 08:27:29 UTC
Often the BroadcastReceiver is just temporarily registered, so creating a new class that just has one line in OnReceive method is not always desired:

  mTimeZoneReceiver = new TimeZoneBroadcastReceiver (this);
  private class TimeZoneBroadcastReceiver : BroadcastReceiver
    private readonly WatchFaceEngine engine;
    public TimeZoneBroadcastReceiver (WatchFaceEngine engine)
      this.engine = engine;
    public override void OnReceive (Context context, Intent intent)
      engine.mCalendar.TimeZone = TimeZone.Default;
      engine.Invalidate ();

It would be much nicer to use:

  mTimeZoneReceiver = new TimeZoneBroadcastReceiver ((context, intent) => {
    mCalendar.TimeZone = TimeZone.Default;
    Invalidate ();
