Description Ben 2012-04-27 09:15:18 UTC
I am attempting to call a wcf service and return the results in monotouch.  This works fine when the wcf service just has one of my methods and I generate the proxy and call from mono touch.  

However, when the service has two methods and I generate the proxy and call from mono touch, it will successfully send to the wcf service and the service will generate a response (I have added logging in the service to confirm this), yet mono touch will not hit the handler that receives the response. The app in the debugger just stops without error/exception.  I think it is somehow choking trying to translate the result via the proxy.  

I should add that the wcf methods both return custom objects and are fairly complex objects, yet they both work perfectly fine when only one is in the wcf service and I generate the proxy and call from mono touch.  Having both in the wcf at the same time and generating the proxy is what causes the problem.  I have also discovered that switching the order of the two methods in the wcf and regenerating the proxy fixes the problem as well, but I assume this problem will creep up as more methods are added again.

All setups work fine calling from a windows client also. I have turned on all exceptions in the debugger options yet nothing is thrown.

Can you attach a complete and working test project where I can try this out? I don't see anything immediately wrong here, so I'll need a complete test case to figure out what's going on.
