Description Henning 2012-07-25 02:59:43 UTC

Occures in Version Monotouch: 5.3.5

If you assign a click or dismiss event then the UIAlertViews other button is no longer clickable (disabled).

alertView = new UIAlertView ("Error occured", "test", null, "Ok", new string[] { "Report error" });
alertView.Clicked += HandleAlertViewClicked;

void HandleAlertViewClicked (object sender, UIButtonEventArgs e)

Reproduce by commenting the clicked handler in and out.

If this is intentionally please tell me, how to enable the Report error button.

Thank you very much and keep up the good work, MT is an awesome product!

You can enable the button like this:

alertView.ShouldEnableFirstOtherButton = (a) => true;

In any case the current behavior is quite counter-intuitive (adding an event handler shouldn't automagically disable a button), so I've fixed it for the next version (5.3.6).
