In an iOS app, this code:
returns false !
Per the CALayer.Opacity declaration, it should return true, as a public setter exists:
public virtual float Opacity
return Messaging.float_objc_msgSend(this.Handle, Selector.GetHandle("opacity"));
return Messaging.float_objc_msgSendSuper(this.SuperHandle, Selector.GetHandle("opacity"));
Messaging.void_objc_msgSend_float(this.Handle, Selector.GetHandle("setOpacity:"), value);
Messaging.void_objc_msgSendSuper_float(this.SuperHandle, Selector.GetHandle("setOpacity:"), value);

This could be the linker removing the setter.
Does this happen in the simulator with the managed linker disabled (in the project's iOS Build options, set "Linker behavior" to "Don't link")?
Yes in simulator, iphone 5s and iphone 6, ios 9.1 and 9.3
I already added a dead code using the setter to prevent any linker to remove the setter.
OH NO i added only the getter. Grrrr.
Linker switch is set to "Link SDK assemblies only". In debug mode. So it has reset again to link sdk assemblies only ! I set it 10 times to "Dont link". I hate xamarin studio messing with csproj file and being unable to play correctly with VS2015 xamarin extension ... Hope you fix definetly that VS extension soon. Until that, i have to keep with XS for archiving, as VS is unable to archive/re-sign a working appstore version.
Working ok now with the getter added to the dead code.
