Having difficulty converting old Monomac DllImports for new Unified API

I've been converting old GIT code to the new Unified API and have hit the following that I cannot convert:

    [DllImport (MonoMac.Constants.AppKitLibrary, EntryPoint="NSDrawWindowBackground")]
    public extern static void DrawWindowBackground (CGRect aRect);

    [DllImport (MonoMac.Constants.AppKitLibrary, EntryPoint="NSSetFocusRingStyle")]
    public extern static void SetFocusRingStyle (NSFocusRingPlacement placement);

    [DllImport (MonoMac.Constants.AppKitLibrary, EntryPoint="NSDisableScreenUpdates")]
    public extern static void DisableScreenUpdates ();

    [DllImport (MonoMac.Constants.AppKitLibrary, EntryPoint="NSEnableScreenUpdates")]
    public extern static void EnableScreenUpdates ();

I keep getting "The name 'MonoMac' does not exist in the current context" compile-time message & when I strip 'MonoMac' I receive the same message "The name 'Constants' does not exist in the current context.

What am I missing here?

    MonoMac.Constants.AppKitLibrary simply resolves to "/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/AppKit"

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I am new to Mac dev... what would be the fix then?

    Just hard code the string constant:

    [DllImport ("/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/AppKit", EntryPoint="NSEnableScreenUpdates")]
    public extern static void EnableScreenUpdates ();

    Apple isn't moving AppKit anytime.

    Thanks Chris... Now I just need to figure out why NSCellMask is not found in the "Unified" AppKit ... :neutral:
