The `WillRemoveSubview` API [1] is not to remove a subview, it's the method that gets called when iOS removes one.


	class MyView : UIView {
		public override void WillRemoveSubview (UIView uiview)
		    Console.WriteLine ("view was removed");
		    base.WillRemoveSubview (uiview);

Overriding the method, like aboce, would allow your UIView to be notified when they are removed.
