Description Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2017-06-15 21:07:50 UTC
In ARKit, on ARSCNDebugOptions we have a great case of how `BindAs` could be used if only it supported Fields.

See: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/pull/2187/files#r120884394

Right now this is not the case and trying to use BindAs does nothing (not even generate a warning in this case).
Comment 1 Alex Soto [MSFT] 2017-06-15 21:12:33 UTC
I think FieldAttribute should support enums by itself
Comment 2 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-06-16 07:46:22 UTC
I agree with Alex, FieldAttribute should support enums.

It should also look at the [Native] attribute of the enum to make sure we use the right size.

fixed in xamarin-macios/xcode9 @ 3c5221b2142feaca295adc098bdab3e96b48ed1b

No BindAs attribute needed, FieldAttribute now supports enums all by itself
