Context menu on an image in a Monotouch Binding Project

When adding a resource bundle from an Objective-C library into a Monotouch Binding project, the context menu on the images do not show the "BundleResource" build-action.
You have to dive into the csproj manually to add this Build action. (afterwards it does show up on that image).

This is expected behaviour from the following MonoDevelop document: http://docs.xamarin.com/ios/Guides/Platform_Features/MonoDevelop_Features#Resources_in_Binding_Projects

I don't seem to be able to reproduce this. What version of MonoDevelop are you using?
Comment 3 Stefan de Vogelaere 2012-11-23 10:44:16 UTC
=> New Project
=> Monotouch Binding Project
=> Add folder Resources
=> Add Image in folder
=> RightClick on Image, Choose Build Action

I don't see BundleResource

If I do this for another UI Monotouch project, it works.

ok, looks like this has been fixed some time after 3.0.5

fix will be in 3.0.7 (3.0.6 will just be 3.0.5 + an android fix)
