Cant seem to find the bindings for ABCreateStringWithAddressDictionary.


Docs say that it is in the AddressBookUI/AddressBookUI.h framework and declared in ABAddressFormatting.h. But can't seem to find it in MonoTouch 5.3.5.

You're right, it's presently missing from our bindings. Thanks for reporting this.

It should be simple to p/invoke manually (since it's not an objc API) and add to an existing application in case this is blocking you.

Fixed (it should be available in MonoTouch 5.4.1)

master: d6e948f791f54c35898df444c17d214fdca83c3e
monotouch-5.4-series: d370b3f08d044944eba1fc9c87f39b6cbd5627d7

QA: unit tests added in both branches

Handy to notice that this can be addressed as a ToString on ABAddressFormatting:

ABAddressFormatting.ToString(NSDictionary address, bool addCountryName);
