Description Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-06-27 14:52:52 UTC

	[BindAs (typeof (AVMediaTypes[,]))]
	[Export ("strongAVMediaTypesPropertiesMulti:")]
	NSString[,] StrongAVMediaTypesPropertiesMulti { get; set; }

results in compilation error:

	error CS0029: Cannot implicitly convert type 'AVFoundation.AVMediaTypes[]' to 'AVFoundation.AVMediaTypes[*,*]'
	error CS1929: 'AVMediaTypes[*,*]' does not contain a definition for 'GetConstant' and the best extension method overload 'UIContentSizeCategoryExtensions.GetConstant(UIContentSizeCategory)' requires a receiver of type 'UIContentSizeCategory'

I think the binding generator should just show an error in this case instead.

Yeah Agreed, Multidimensional arrays aren't supported in ObjC anyways
