Looking for the Android.Support.V4.App.NotificationCompat.Builder class. It seems to be missing from Mono for Android. Here is the Java documentation for it: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/app/NotificationCompat.Builder.html
To duplicate, create a new project, add in the android-support-v4.jar and a reference Mono.Android.Support.v4.dll. I would expect the class to be found in Android.Support.V4.App namespace.
Apart from whether it is good or bad, we never provided bindings for static classes such as android.app.Build.VERSION or android.view.View.MeasureSpec. NotificationCompat.Builder is another example for this.
IMO this should be considered as post-4.2 issue.
That answer works for me. :)
Going to mark this as resolved.
Well, let's not close this but keep it open so that we don't forget about this.
Actually this rather looks like MonoDevelop assembly browser issue (unless you confirmed this issue on Windows with .NET tools and those tools also have a bug). I cannot see this NotificationCompat.Builder class on the assembly browser, but it actually exists:
atsushi@atsushi-Aspire-3820:~/svn/monodroid$ cat test.cs
public static void Main ()
new Android.Support.V4.App.NotificationCompat.Builder (null);
atsushi@atsushi-Aspire-3820:~/svn/monodroid$ mcs test.cs -r:out/lib/mandroid/platforms/android-15/Mono.Android.Support.v4.dll -r:out/lib/mandroid/platforms/android-15/Mono.Android.dll
