Description Peter Collins 2012-12-04 16:38:33 UTC
Clicking the app icon button launches an incomplete 'Select icon...' window that does not allow the user to browse for an image or see any image files located within the project folder shown.


Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a xam mac project in MD
2) Double click on the project folder, or open the info.plist file
3) Click on the button with the text 'No image specified'

Environment Details:
xam mac - 0.9.21

This is technically fixed, though I need to make it clear to the user that:

(a) you need to add a .icns file to your project
(b) that .icns file needs to be set as a bundled resource

With that prerequisite satisfied, you should see the icon when setting it in the application options.

We have verified this issue,using following steps :

 1-) Add a .icns file to project. 
 2-) make .icns file as bundled resource.
 3-) right click on project name.
 4-) select MAC OS X application.
 5-) double click on appicon(No image specified).
 6-) select .icns file.

We are successfully able to add .icns file
