Description Matthew Leibowitz 2017-08-17 12:02:52 UTC
I have this Objective-C:

    FOUNDATION_EXTERN SInt16 const TIPMaxCountForAllDiskCachesDefault;

This should be this in C#:

    [Field("TIPMaxCountForAllDiskCachesDefault", "__Internal")]
    short MaxCountForAllDiskCaches { get; }

But I get this error:

    BTOUCH : error BI1014: bgen: Unsupported type for Fields: short

note: let's make sure we add (and test) all integral variations when doing this.
