After update to 15.5 such error started to appear (see attached screenshot). Designer tries to convert UITableView to custom class "StandardMobileApp.iOS.TasksListView" and can't do that.

I can't give you a real project where this bug can be reproduced and can't make a sample too. But it would be great if you connect me view RDP or something like that to investigate this bug.

Hi Sergei,

Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately, right now we don't have enough information to investigate this issue and find a solution. If this is still an issue for you, please update to our latest version (15.5.5). If you are still able to reproduce the problem, we may need a sample project for this specific error. I am also curious what the TasksListView type is. Is it a subclass of UITableView? If not, that is the issue. 

For example, it would need to be similar to this:

class TasksListView : UITableView

Thank you for helping us build a better Visual Studio!
