Description Ryan Niebur 2015-11-04 17:34:53 UTC
Changes to "Internationalization" under "Advanced" on the "iOS Build" properties get lost.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open Visual Studio 2015 and create a new iOS project of type "Blank App (iOS)".
2. Go to the Properties for this project and open the "Advanced" tab of "iOS Build".
3. Under "Internationalization", find and check the checkbox for the "west" codesets.
4. Close the Properties and they will be saved. Verify in the user interface and csproj.
5. Go to the Properties again, but open another setting tab, such as "iOS Application".
6. Change an unrelated setting, such as disabling the "Portrait" Device Orientation.
7. Close Properties and the original change to "Internationalization" reverts.
8. Verify that "west" is again disabled in the csproj and user interface.

We are seeing this in the stable channel version, but also reproduced it on alpha channel.

I'm using the following MSBuild snippet to detect and give an error when the setting gets lost:

<Error Condition="$(MtouchI18n) != 'west'" Text="This project requires west encodings, but they were removed. Go to the Properties of the $(RootNamespace) project, open the 'Advanced' tab under 'iOS Build' and check the box for 'west' under 'Internationalization'." />

Thanks for the report and for the snippet in Comment 1. I have added that snippet to an older bug report about the same issue Bug 29323 and done some additional cleanup on that bug to schedule it for further investigation.

I will accordingly mark this bug as a duplicate of the older bug for tidiness.
