Description Nima Ghaedsharafi 2015-09-28 03:20:40 UTC
Okay, this is a strange one.

I'm trying to create a custom culture in Xamarin using:

using System.Globalization;


var x = new CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder();

But I get the nasty red Resharper error with no options.

The type or namespace name 'CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Globalization'

What's going on, am I missing something? Can't find any help on google...

Xamarin Version: 5.9.4


Error CS0103: The name `CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder' does not exist in the current context (CS0103) 
Error CS0246: The type or namespace name `CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference? (CS0246)

Indeed, that type doesn't exist in the Xamarin.Android profiles. Since it doesn't exist, ReSharper is correct in flagging it as an error.

Furthermore, I'm not sure it's possible to support it:

> The custom culture can be installed on a computer and subsequently
> used by any application that is running on that computer

I know of no way to do this within Android.
