Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
steps to reproduce
1. from the designer , drag and drop controls into a view controller
2. provide names for each control.
3. build the project
4. rename the outlet using the properties window. A new outlet will be added, rather than renamed.
when I change the outlet name from the properties window , under widget, I expect the outlet field to be RENAMED.
renaming an outlet causes VS to add a new outlet to the designer file. The old outlet remains in the designer file and needs to be manually removed. not a good user experience.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 43101 ***
Bug #43101 is internal, but to update you: This is a known issue and we've patched it and the fix should be availabke in the next C8 preview release
Thank you Alan,
it appears that 95% of the bugs reported were fixed in c8.
is it safe to update to c8 at this point? what is the time line for c8?
It's already in the beta channel, so it's approaching the final stage before it hits stable.
My recommendation would be to grab the latest C8 builds (beta channel) and test it out on a copy of your project. If you encounter any new issues, or if existing issues aren't completely fixed, do let us know!
This secific bug isn't entrely fixed in the current beta. One workaround, when using the current beta, is to hit `save all` and then make a change to the storyboard. That shoukd cause the actions/outlets to properly regenerate.
