Description Manabu Nakazawa 2016-10-28 08:24:22 UTC
1. Create a new solution for iOS's Single View App
   At this time, line break type of ViewController.designer.cs is  LF)
2. Open Main.storyboard and change it to change ViewController.designer.cs
3. See ViewController.designer.cs, its line break type changed to CRLF

I couldn't avoid this behavior even when I changed the code formatting setting to "Unix / Mac" form "Native".

It's very annoying because my .gitconfig has "safecrlf = true".

Hello Manabu

This is the correct behavior.

The .designer.cs code should be a read-only code, and will be always (re)generated by the designer.

We can't use the user settings, since this could cause two different machines to generate two different .designer.cs files.

Image you have the line end as CR and other person as CRLF, then this would cause the entire .designer.cs to be different. 

So the .desiger.cs is always generate equal, regardless the user formatting setting.

Thanks Vinicius!

I see.
So should I add "*.designer.cs" to my .gitignore?

No because you will still need to push the .designer.cs changes :-)

The idea is no matter who changed the storyboard files, the .designer.cs will have the same output.
