Description Neal 2012-06-24 10:44:50 UTC

I see "AsDictionary" which may be from System.Collections.Generic but the NSDictionary should have a method DictionaryRepresentation which I'm not finding for NSUserDefaults.StandardUserDefaults.  It is available on NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore.DefaultStore so I'm wondering if this was missed in NSUserDefaults?
Comment 1 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2012-06-25 04:58:09 UTC
NSUserDefaults.AsDictionary is bound to dictionaryRepresentation, so that's the method you're looking for.

That said, it's unfortunate that dictionaryRepresentation is bound to AsDictionary for NSUserDefaults and DictionaryRepresentation for NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore.

Fixed (for the Unified API).

We're now using 'ToDictionary' exclusively.
