Description Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-04-05 22:03:53 UTC
When building a MonoTouch app, when I try to get completion in a constructor for the word "frame", the "Frame" property is offered instead, which is illegal in C# in the "base" declaration, this should (a) not be shown and (b) the proper parameter should be offered:

class Foo : UIView {
    public Foo (RectangleF frame) : base (****

The problem happens where the *** is: instead of offering me to complete "frame", it offers "Frame" and even completes it for me, producing invalid code that fails to compile ("An instance reference is needed for...")

It's a difficult to reproduce problem. 

That's what I get:

I think it's not an mcs issue, things like that happen when the 'context' is lost. This means that the caret is not in the constructor member.

That can have various reasons, that's why I need more info about it. The breadcrumb bar at the top tells you if you're in the constructor or not.

Generally when code completion fails look at the breadcrumb, if it shows if you're in the correct member or not. I think that's more or less the only way to break the current completion. (However it may be weak in some contexts, can never be sure of it).

Any news on that ? I need a use case or screen cast for that.

btw. if you use ctrl+space and something is not working that's an important information for me.
