My Current Xamarin.iOS application is having Version 2.6 and Build 1.0, but when I try to change the Build to 1.01 it again sets itself back to 1.0. I have also checked .csproj of the iOS project. Get version form Parent Solution is set to true which looks fine, but when I try to create an ipa build for release version it does not catch my applied build version. Instead Xamarin replaces build version with default 1.0 , Any suggestions ?

Please include your full build logs, crash reports (if any), test case (to reproduce) and all version information.

To get full build logs just set the log verbosity to diagnostic at the following locations:
- On Visual Studio for Mac: Preferences > Projects > Build
- On Visual Studio for Windows: Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > Build and Run

On Visual Studio Windows you also want to add `-v -v -v -v` to the mtouch additional arguments by right-clicking the project in the solution explorer and selecting `Properties`.
Note: this is done automatically on Visual Studio for Mac when the log verbosity is set to diagnostic.

Easiest way to get exact version information:
- On Visual Studio for Mac: "Visual Studio" menu, "About Visual Studio" item, "Show Details" button.
- On Visual Studio for Windows: "Help menu", "About Microsoft Visual Studio" item.
Then copy/paste the version information (you can use the "Copy Information" button).

@Jeff can you check this ? not sure if it's a bug (I don't recall all the rules) but the UI should help if it's not possible to set a value.
Comment 6 Jeffrey Stedfast 2017-07-31 19:24:16 UTC
You have to set the Version and Build in the Info.plist, it does not take the values from the Parent Solution.

iOS apps don't work like normal .NET apps in that regard and it would be too confusing to make it work that way because we couldn't possibly know which values to use - the ones in the Info.plist or the ones in the Solution Options?
