Description Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2017-06-29 20:19:46 UTC

[Wrap ("HMPresenceTypeExtensions.GetValue (_PresenceType)")]
HMPresenceType PresenceType { get; set; }

where _PresenceType is:

[Export ("presenceType")]
NSString _PresenceType { get; set; }

The generated code for the getter is fine but wrong for the setter.

public HMPresenceType PresenceType {
	get {
		return (HMPresenceType) (HMPresenceTypeExtensions.GetValue (_PresenceType));
	set {
		HMPresenceTypeExtensions.GetValue (_PresenceType) = value;

Idk if we should support `[Wrap ("_PresenceType")]` or `BindAs`.

Changing how `[Wrap]` works will likely cause other issues and it's also confusing.
I think we should be using something like:

	HMPresenceType PresenceType {
		[Wrap ("HMPresenceTypeExtensions.GetValue (_PresenceType)")]

but it still require a small fix to avoid

> error BI1018: bgen: No [Export] attribute on property HomeKit.HMPresenceEvent.PresenceType

That check should be relaxed if the getter and setters (when presents) have [Wrap], [Export], [BindAs] or [NotImplemented].

FWIW it always bugged me to do something like

	[Export ("advertisingTrackingEnabled")]
	bool IsAdvertisingTrackingEnabled { [Bind ("isAdvertisingTrackingEnabled")] get; }

since the [Export] is ignored (when no setter is present).

Not required to ship `xcode9` support. We want to minimize changes (and potential regression) from stable on this branch.
