Description Rob Lyndon 2017-03-23 09:47:45 UTC
In my Resource.designer.fs project, I have the following line:

            static val mutable private ColorStateListItem:int[]

This is in the Resource_Styleable type.

But it is referred to in the UpdateIdValues() method in the Resources type:

                global.MyProject.Mobile.Android.Shared.Resource.Styleable.ColorStateListItem <- Resource_Styleable.ColorStateListItem

Unsurprisingly, this results in the error

The record, struct or class field 'RecyclerView' is not accessible from this code location	

The line

            static val mutable private ColorStateListItem:int[]

should clearly never have been generated in this way. I don't see why it needs to be writable.

I need a fix or a workaround urgently.

Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We are unable to reproduce this issue. Please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.

Could you share the updated repo? It does not compile with/show the error with latest Xamarin.Forms libraries
