Description RobertN 2016-07-10 01:59:25 UTC
Xamarin.iOS Version: 

Create project using the iOS / App / OpenGL project template and run it.


  effect.Light0.DiffuseColor = new Vector4(1.0f, 0.4f, 0.4f, 1.0f);

Results in:

  Xamarin.iOS: Unsupported type encoding: _GLKVector4={?=ffff}{?=ffff}{?=ffff}[4f])16
  critical: Stacktrace:
  critical:   at <unknown> <0xffffffff>
  critical:   at (wrapper managed-to-native) ObjCRuntime.Messaging.void_objc_msgSend_Vector4  (intptr,intptr,OpenTK.Vector4) <IL 0x0000b, 0x00131>

Factoring that out, leads to:


  var projectionMatrix = Matrix4.CreatePerspectiveFieldOfView(MathHelper.DegreesToRadians(65.0f), aspect, 0.1f, 100.0f);
  effect.Transform.ProjectionMatrix = projectionMatrix;

Results in:

Reproduce Status:

I have also observed crash with opengl template on
Application output: https://gist.github.com/shrutis360/d284ef95466fa7271fd27806851bd8ec

Verify Status:

I have checked this with latest Cycle 8 XS xamarin.ios- and Master XS xamarin.ios-

Now opengl template is running successfully without any crash.
