    I had already tried that but I kept getting "Error    36    Error parsing XML: unbound prefix    .../Resources/layout/locationslayout.xml" in Visual Studio. I use Mono for Android 4.4.55.Any other ideas?

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:
