Description Chris Hamons 2017-11-30 22:53:16 UTC
So in obj-c they declare it read only

`@property (readonly) NSGestureRecognizerState state;`

and later use this to all subclases to set
    @interface NSGestureRecognizer (NSSubclassUse)
    // readonly for users of a gesture recognizer. may only be changed by direct subclasses of NSGestureRecognizer
    @property NSGestureRecognizerState state;  // the current state of the gesture recognizer. can only be set by subclasses of NSGestureRecognizer, but can be read by consumers
In iOS we handle this correctly:

		[Export ("state")]
		UIGestureRecognizerState State { get; set; }

but do not in XM:

		[Export ("state")]
		NSGestureRecognizerState State { get; }
