To duplicate bug perform the following:

1. Load a MonoTouch binding project that generates a dll.
2. Create another project that references that project. Choose to make a Project reference instead of specifying DLL.
3. Write some code to use the binding. Code Completion doesn't work.
4. Delete the project reference and now use DLL reference.
5. Code Completion works.

Just fixed :)

It's not quite the same, MT has the same problem as MfA which is that the binding projects generate code at build time, so the completion engine cannot pick it up.

If anything, this is related to Bug 6695.

My fault, didn't know about 'binding projects'.

But works now as well (fixed together with 6695).

In what version of MonoDevelop is this fixed. Just tested it with 3.0.5 it code completion does not work as described. You need to reference the DLL directly to have code completion working for Binding Projects.
Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2012-11-27 09:30:16 UTC
Should've made it into 3.0.5 - we've a development branch that's not yet released. (We aim for a january release).

I'm running 3.0.5 and its still broken there, I'm guessing it's another version?
