I use Xamarin with Visual Studio 2012.
I have a very large and complex application which was built to target Android API 12 and which performs correctly.
In the latest Xamarin update support for API 12 target has been dropped, and when built for an API 15 target the entire user interface of my code behaves differently when screen re-orientation occurs.
For example, take the case of a simple app with one button on the main layout. Tapping this button produces an AlertDialog with a checkbox in it.
If you build this targetting API 12 and test the resulting app, tapping the button displays the AlertDialog. If you move the device to change the screen orientation the AlertDialog still shows, and the checkbox state before the screen orientation is preserved.
If you build the same app but targetting API 15 then the AlertDialog disappears every time you change screen orientation.
Not having API12 available as a target means I will have to substantially re-code my app, can API 12 support be re-introduced?
