           Summary: Using dynamic from different assembly doesn't work
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: SVN
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: mono at e-tobi.net

Say we have an assembly test1, with a single class:


using System;

namespace DynamicTest
    public class Foo
        public dynamic DynamicProperty { get; set; }

Now create an executable that references and uses this assembly:


using System;

namespace DynamicTest
    public class Bar
        public static void Main()
            var foo = new Foo();
            foo.DynamicProperty = "test";

Compiling test2.cs will fail:

$ dmcs test2.cs -r:test1
test2.cs(11,51): error CS1061: Type `object' does not contain a definition for
`ToUpper' and no extension method `ToUpper' of type `object' could be found
(are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

But compiling everything into one executable/assembly works just fine:

$ dmcs test2.cs test1.cs
$ mono test2.exe

(Tested with ee2edbad34)
