Invoking getDrawableState() in a UITest (Android)

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to use AppQuery's Invoke() method to invoke the native Android method getDrawableState() on some elements. According to Android documentation, this method returns an integer array:
So I thought it should be this:

app.Query(c => c.Class("CheckView").Invoke("getDrawableState").Value<int[]>())

But this gives me an error:

Error while performing Query(Class("CheckView").Invoke("getDrawableState").Value<Int32[]>())
Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Actual type 'Array' not compatible with declared type 'System.Int32[]'. Value: [

What am I doing wrong? Is the Java int[] different from the C# int[]? This approach works fine when the return value is an integer like with getCurrentTextColour (see ).

I've found a way around this issue, so I don't really need to solve it anymore, I'm just curious why it's not working the way I expected it to.
