Description Eric Maupin 2012-12-03 17:19:33 UTC
The iOS toolbar gets re-added on each launch of Visual Studio, despite being removed previously.
Comment 1 Marek Habersack 2012-12-04 03:21:51 UTC
We don't really control that aspect from within the extension (even though we'd like to, in fact). The toolbar is defined in the extension metadata and is fully managed by Visual Studio. I'm going to leave this bug open, should it turn out to be our bug, but I doubt it is...
Comment 2 Eric Maupin 2012-12-04 07:05:55 UTC
Given that the MFA toolbar (or any toolbar, for that matter) does not exhibit this problem, I'd say it's our problem.

Which version of MTVS is that?
Comment 5 PJ 2013-02-20 06:06:22 UTC
This issue was already fixed at some point. Alex can you provide version information please?

On 1.0.897 (the release build) I get 


That's on Windows 7 x64 with VS2012
Comment 6 Alex Soto [MSFT] 2013-02-20 09:12:53 UTC
I am using MTVS Beta 4 with windows 8 and VS 2012
Comment 7 Alex Soto [MSFT] 2013-02-20 09:17:16 UTC
I'm using MTVS 1.0.897 (b4c50138)  btw Windows 8 x64
Comment 8 Alex Soto [MSFT] 2013-02-21 09:36:25 UTC
Sorry guys, this bug is still there for me, I thought it was a bad installation again and I just reinstalled my computer twice, Also I was able to replicate this issue on a customers Windows machine too yesterday.


MTVS 1.0.897 (b4c50138) Windows 8 x64. VS2012 Ultimate Update 1 (spanish)
Comment 9 Eric Maupin 2013-02-21 11:03:40 UTC
Please keep in mind that what Alex is reporting is not the same as the original bug report. Fixing the original issue will probably fix Alex's issue, but just fixing Alex's issue will not necessarily fix the original issue.
Comment 10 Marek Habersack 2013-02-21 12:01:58 UTC
It's related though, at least as far as our code is concerned.
Comment 11 MBI 2013-03-01 10:27:22 UTC
I just wanted to let you know that i am facing the exact same issue as Alex showed here. My Environment is Win7 with German localization, VS2012 with German localization and mtvs-1.0.897.0
Comment 12 Dominique Louis 2013-05-23 17:17:29 UTC
I believe the Issue Alex and MBI are having, is related to using a non-English VS. I've installed a German VS here, but still not been able to reproduce yet.
Comment 13 MBI 2013-05-24 02:59:39 UTC
Here is how i can reproduce the issue:

1. Open VS (duplicate Toolbar items have been removed beforehand)
2. Open Xamarin.iOS Solution

=> Two Toolbar Items get added the Standard Toolbar

Remove the obsolete toolbar items:

1. Right click on VS Toolbar, "Anpassen"
2. Choose Tab "Befehle"
3. Choose "Symbolleiste: Standard"
4. Remove the unwanted entries ("Projektmappenplattformen", "Projektmappenkonfigurationen")
5. Close VS

Next time i open the Xamarin.iOS Solution the toolbar items get added again.

If there is anything i can do to assist you just let me know, e.g. review or provide any VS config files?

Comment 15 Mohit Kheterpal 2013-05-30 13:13:54 UTC
Today we have checked this issue on following builds :

VS 2012 / 2010
MTVS 1.2.103

The iOS toolbar is not re-added on each launch of Visual Studio.

Its working fine. Hence changing its status to verified.

VS Standard Toolbar with unwanted elements

With mtvs the problem is still there for me.

The screenshot shows VS 2012 standard toolbar with unwanted elements added by mtvs.
Comment 17 Dominique Louis 2013-06-02 22:25:55 UTC
Hi all,
  there are 2 bugs in this issue. Vinicius fixed one of them, but I've just fixed the duplicate toolbar issue as part of 9eb0d258c04b6fb05c0d5f609f3131d210b399db , which Alex Soto just confirmed that it worked for him.

I hope we can include this in the next public release.
