Description Søren Bjergmark 2016-04-04 21:36:31 UTC
When calling a static method with a dynamic parameter in a lamda as a argument for the base class constructor the compiler gives this error on Mac OS X:
Error CS1673: Anonymous methods inside structs cannot access instance members of `this'. Consider copying `this' to a local variable outside the anonymous method and using the local instead (CS1673) (POCBugCompiler)

The following code works in Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio on Windows however not on Mac OS X. I am using version 5.10.3 (build 51 of Xamarin Studio) - no updates on stable channel. Mono is version 4.2.3.

using System;

namespace POCCompilerError
	public class MyClass
		public class SomeBaseClass
			public SomeBaseClass(Action action)


		public class SomeInheritedClass : SomeBaseClass
			public SomeInheritedClass() : base(() =>


			public static decimal StaticMethod(dynamic someDynamicArgument)
				return 3m;

			public static dynamic SomeRandomDynamic()
				return new object();

I discovered the bug in a similar call but the static method was located in the base class. If needed i would help with providing more information.
