Description Jonathan Pryor 2012-11-19 16:51:31 UTC
Add Fragment.Instantiate(Context, Type) and Fragment.Instantiate(Context, Type, Bundle) overloads.

Context: Bug #8508.

Fragment.Instantiate(Context, string) needs to take a Java name, as it's calling a Java-land API (and Java-land can't contain PascalCased namespaces). If you want to refer to a C# type, you need to use the Android Callable Wrapper name, which is annoying to get (`Class.FromType(type).Name`, iirc).

Add Fragment.Instantiate() overloads which take a Type instance so that C# types can be more easily used.
