Designing iOS apps inside Visual Studio with Xamarin

Play Designing iOS apps inside Visual Studio with Xamarin

Description

This is the second of another four part series on building cross platform apps using Xamarin and C#. In this episode Robert is joined by James Montemagno, a developer evangelist at Xamarin. James shows us the new Xamarin Designer for iOS that is integrated directly into Visual Studio to design iOS applications. You don't need to use XCode to build the UI. You can stay in Visual Studio! We take a look at several features of the designer including auto-layout, constraints, and even custom controls.

    During the beginning of the video James uses a share project instead of a portable class library, is there any particular benefit using share project versus portable class library

    Great video! Is it possible to create a collection view like in this video but by dragging image or button views into into each cell without no coding. That is what I did because I want to create a simple 2x6 grid of images without any data source. It displays well in the storyboard but when I run the app, the collection view is not displayed at all.
