Class that contains keys that identify exception data values.

CFMachPort

Basic access to the underlying operating system Mach Port and integration with run loops.

CFStream.StreamEventArgs

An T:System.EventArgs used by several events in CFString.

CFString

String class used by C-only Cocoa APIs.

CFStringTransformExtensions
CFType

Base type for some Core Foundation classes, such as CFSocket and CFStream.

CFUrl

URL class used by C-only Cocoa APIs.

DispatchIO
DispatchObject

Base class for dispatch objects.

DispatchQueue

Provides a task queue that can perform tasks either synchronously or asynchronously.

DispatchQueue.Attributes
DispatchSource

DispatchSource is a base class used to reprenset event sources that can monitor a variety of system objects and events including file descriptors, mach ports, processes, virtual filesystem nodes, signal delivery and timers.

DispatchSource.Data

Base class for dispatch sources that allow applications to trigger an event handler on the target queue.

DispatchSource.DataAdd

Dispatch sources that allow applications to trigger an event handler on the target queue.

DispatchSource.DataOr

Dispatch sources that allow applications to trigger an event handler on the target queue.

DispatchSource.Mach

Base class for dispatch sources that allow applications to monitor a Mach port.

DispatchSource.MachReceive

Dispatch Sources of this type monitor a mach port with a receive right for state changes.

DispatchSource.MachSend

Dispatch sources of this type monitors a mach port with a send right for state changes.

DispatchSource.MemoryPressure

Sources of this type monitor the system memory pressure condition for state changes.

DispatchSource.ProcessMonitor

Dispatch Source of this type monitor processes for state changes

DispatchSource.ReadMonitor

Sources of this type monitor file descriptors for pending data.

DispatchSource.SignalMonitor

Sources of this type monitor signals delivered to the current process.

DispatchSource.Timer

Sources of this type periodically invoke the event handler on the target queue.

DispatchSource.VnodeMonitor

Sources of this type monitor the virtual filesystem nodes for state changes.

DispatchSource.WriteMonitor

Sources of this type monitor file descriptors for available write buffer space.

NativeObject

Structs

CFBundle.PackageInfo
CFRange

Represents a range from two integers: location and length.

CFSocketNativeHandle

Type for the platform-specific native socket handle.

CFStreamClientContext

A structure used to support custom stream-related events.

DispatchTime

Dispatch time and time-out representation.

Interfaces

ICFType

MonoTouch-internal interface for now.

Remarks

The types in the MonoTouch.CoreFoundation namespace are bindings to the object oriented CocoaTouch C-API. They are lower level classes, functions and types than the Objective-C based APIs found in MonoTouch.Foundation.
