Description pvasek 2012-07-16 16:23:40 UTC
It is not possible to step into the methods from generic base class of the controller.

In attached example you can see that breakpoint placed in the method ControllerBase<T>.ViewDidLoad will not stop on the device.

Generic subclasses of NSObject is not supported (MonoTouch 6.0.4 will warn when you build for device if you try to use them now).
