The monodroid list [0] or the forums [1] would be a better place to ask.

To refer to a type in a .axml file, you must use either the fully-qualified C# type name (case-sensitive), or the fully-qualified Android Callable Wrapper type name [2, 3]:


The above sample is old, so it's using the Android Callable Wrapper type name, but it could instead use the fully-qualified C# type name instead:
