Problems co-existing with IObservables?

Aug 21, 2010 at 6:06 PM


Is anyone else experiencing problems using this control alongside the Reactive Extensions built in to Windows Phone 7?

For example, take a simple project and add this somewhere like the main form's Loaded event:

                Observable.Interval (TimeSpan.FromSeconds (5)).ObserveOnDispatcher ().Subscribe (source => MessageBox.Show ("Ping!"));

(You may need to add references to the built-in System.Observable and Microsoft.Phone.Reactive assemblies if you're not already using them.)

That line should make a messagebox appear every 5 seconds. On my system it doesn't.

When I remove the AdMob control from the form though, it works exactly as I expect - a messagebox pops up every 5 seconds.

Is this a known issue? If not, can someone verify it on a different machine to show I'm not going crazy?

Many thanks,
