Description Alan McGovern 2012-06-07 11:09:30 UTC
public enum UIControlState : uint
	Normal = 0u,
	Highlighted = 1u,
	Disabled = 2u,
	Selected = 4u,
	Application = 16711680u,
	Reserved = 4278190080u

1) Declare this enum
2) Create a program which does:  Console.WriteLine (UIControlState.Normal.ToString ())

'0' is printed instead of 'Normal'

Removing some members from the enum 'fixes' the problem.

The bug was in Array.BinarySearch, backported Zoltan's patch from mono/master:


This fixes the issue.
