Description kenchell 2012-11-05 02:08:08 UTC
I published my App to the Appstore and installed it,It was crashed when it invoke below codes:

private static Type[] _emptyArgument = new Type[0]; 
private static void InitXmlTypeInfo()
     ConstructorInfo defaultConstructor = type.GetConstructor(_emptyArgument);
     if (Object.ReferenceEquals(null, defaultConstructor))
       throw new TypeLoadException("Xmlable class should have a public default constructor! Modify your class: " + type.ToString());  // throw the exception, but there exist the default constructor,see below.

    [Xmlable("_Line", IsUnique = false)]
    public partial class _Line : Shape
	public _Line()

        public _Line(Point head, Point tail, Shape parent)
            : base(head, parent)
            _head = head;
            _tail = tail;

but when I published it to the 'Test Flight' and installed it, there is no problem.The App runs normally. The same to directly compile the app from macintosh to the iPad with mono touch. It is also no problem.
So I am very confused. Can you help me?

Please attach the full build logs (form MOnoDevelop's Error List Pad) for *both* your testlight build and appstore build.

hi, Sebastien Pouliot . 

Thank you for your quick response to my problem. I have fixed this issue yesterday by your cue.

when I built the program to the TestFlight ,I selected the behavior of Linker Options was 'Link SDK assemblies only'. but the different of building to Appstore ,I selected the 'Link all assemblies',
so I got the error.

And then I viewed the official document, such a description :

Link all assemblies 

When linking everything, the linker can use the whole set of its optimizations to make the application as small as possible. It will modify user code, which may break whenever the code uses features in a way that the linker's static analysis cannot detect. In such cases, e.g. webservices, reflection, or serialization, some adjustements might be required in your application to link everything.

Because my codes use the reflection technique, so I was wrong.

Once agan, thank you.
