Android Service.OnStartCommand is obsolete? RRS feed

  • Question

    Just updated to the newest Xamarin Studio / Android. Looks like Service.OnStartCommand has been obsoleted, but it doesn't look obsolete in the Android documentation. Can someone please explain why this change was made and what we should use instead of OnStartCommand?

    Yeah, according to the official docs, OnStart is deprecated, not OnStartCommand. You should probably file a bug on bugzilla.

    I don't see anything in the docs that state why they are now deprecated, or what is expected to be done instead. Quite confusing. I've shy'd away from using this stuff, until now (saw this problem a few weeks ago). At this point in my project, it's now or never; wishing for some luck. :wink:
