Hi,

i try to use Sandcastle with Xamarin.Android

But on build a reflection error is coming.
Generating reflection information...
[c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe]
  MRefBuilder (v2.7.3.0)

Is it possible to build a Sandcastle documentation with Xamarin.Android assemblies?

If they are standard .NET assemblies, Sandcastle should parse them just fine. In this case, it's just a missing reference error. If you aren't using a Visual Studio solution or project file or if you are and it isn't finding the reference automatically, adding the assembly it's complaining about to the SHFB project's References node should allow it to include it in the build and carry on.
