Description a4c8 2016-06-17 15:55:32 UTC
I created an extension method for System.Data.DataTable for debugging purposes which formats me the stored data to output it into a file.

This is accessible as expected during developing time, but when I start a debug session the method neither appear in intellisense (direct window) nor can be accessed by blindly calling it resulting in:

Method 'Extension' not found in type 'System.Data.DataTable'.

Can you please include your full build logs, crash reports (if any), 
test case (to reproduce) and all version informations.

The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the 
"Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" 
button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the 
"Copy Information" button).

If you can provide a small project with an example of the crash that would be extremely useful.
