Async methods (and event handlers) missing from web service proxy

I am following the web services guide ( Everything works fine, except the ASYNC methods are missing from the proxy!

  1. I have added a .wsdl file to my project, and added a Web Reference using that file as the web service definition.
  2. Xamarin studio has created a web service proxy. For every Get____ method in my web service, the proxy contains a BeginGet____ and an EndGet____ method. BUT it did NOT generate a Get_______Async method, nor did it generate a Get_______Complete event.

I am using the free version of Xamarin Studio. Can anyone tell me why the Async functionality was not generated?

    Seems like this only works well in Visual Studio. My solution was to not use web services at all and just use a WebRequest

  • I continue to see more and more support moving toward Visual Studio, while support for Xamarin Studio for Mac continues to be less and less. I see features removed or features not working as they used to (e.g. the Build IPA feature) and I continue to see the common workaround being "use windows".

    The Async methods used to be generated and were enabled and worked fine since we started using these tools 2-3 years ago but now the Async methods are no longer generated. I updated the web service to get new methods that were added and now I lost all the Async methods. Instead of addressing and fixing the issue, we're told to use windows.
