Description Clint 2017-06-28 19:21:29 UTC
# Steps to reproduce
I'm using the NokiaHere API to get driving directions - but I image there are many other API's with similar callbacks.

# Expected behavior
This worked find before the update:
        #region  Geocode Listener
        public GeocodeListener Geocoder = new GeocodeListener();
        public class GeocodeListener : Object, IResultListener
            public void OnCompleted(Object dataListLocations, ErrorCode p1)
            {// Street address supplied as request, collection of locations returned
                if (dataListLocations != null)
                    JavaList locations = (JavaList)dataListLocations;
                    foreach (Location location in locations)
                        GeoCoordinate geo = location.Coordinate;
                        GpsPoint pt = new GpsPoint((decimal)geo.Latitude, (decimal)geo.Longitude);

                    ////var locations =  ((ArrayList) dataListLocations).ToEnumerable<Location>();
                    //if (locations.Any())
                    //    GeoCoordinate geo = locations[0].Coordinate;
                    //    GpsPoint pt = new GpsPoint((decimal)geo.Latitude,(decimal)geo.Longitude);
                    //    RaiseRequestedCoordinateReceived(pt);
            #region RequestedCoordinateReceived (Event) 
            public event EventHandler<GpsPoint> RequestedCoordinateReceived;
            public void RaiseRequestedCoordinateReceived(GpsPoint e)
                EventHandler<GpsPoint> handler = RequestedCoordinateReceived;
                handler?.Invoke(this, e);
            #endregion RequestedCoordinateReceived (Event)

# Actual behavior
Now this line
`                    JavaList locations = (JavaList)dataListLocations;

Hi Clint,

Can you please provide a sample project that demonstrates this not working? It seems like this implicit cast isn't enough. You should instead try using JavaCast:


Either way, we will want a sample project that demonstrates this behavior so we can confirm it!

Thank you!
