Description Nikola 2016-02-19 11:21:21 UTC

The documentation about the ContextCompat is missing from the Xamarin website


Steps to Reproduce: 

First way:

1) Open http://developers.xamarin.com/
2) Search for "ContextCompat"
3) Go to this url: https://developer.xamarin.com/search?q=contextcompat
4) See no results for "ContextCompat"

Second way:

1) Open http://google.com/
2) Search for "xamarin contextcompat"
3) See link "ContextCompat Class - Xamarin" (for me on the #3 position)
4) Open link https://developer.xamarin.com/api/type/Android.Support.V4.Content.ContextCompat/
5) Be redirected to: https://developer.xamarin.com/404?link=%2Fapi%2Ftype%2FAndroid.Support.V4.Content.ContextCompat%2F
6) Link opened is 404


Expected result:

Be able to read about ContextCompat somewhere

you are correct, we currently do not have the Support Library documentation available at developer.xamarin.com

As I'm sure you're aware, documentation is available from Google

we are investigating the issue with the documentation to determine how the `ContextCompat` should appear.

Thanks for letting us know about this issue.

the xamarin link (in "second way" above) no longer appears in Google.

we still do not have the Support Library links in our documentation collection - the best reference is the Android documentation for now.
