There is no active .Net Standard Storage plugin for Xamarin.Forms
# Steps to reproduce
I can not find a .NetStandard Storage plugin actively maintained by Xamarin company.
# Actual behavior
This plugin : https://github.com/dsplaisted/PCLStorage
> Is only compatible with PCL project
> Is discontinued : https://github.com/dsplaisted/PCLStorage/issues/66
This plugin : https://github.com/PCLExt/PCLExt.FileStorage
> Is not maintained by Xamarin company
> Is not mature at this time
Can you please provide a .NetStandard plugin for Xamarin.Forms file storage ?
Thank you and have a nice day.68 votes
By using default font the Farsi words is just the symbols and cannot be read.
but after the font change to something like Segoei the words can be read and theres no problem in the visual.
but there is a problem on selecting the text and moving cursor around the text. I cannot provide screen shot about that because its something you might check by your self.30 votes
Please, add next features to the Remoted iOS Simulator:
- syncronize windows and osx clipboard to allow Copy&Paste actions in the Remoted iOS Simulator window, probably using the native iOS dialog (https://bdfss.blob.core.windows.net/shots/2017-12-07_00-51-08-7506bac1-bbd2-4bb3-9f81-ad9f9d15874b.png),
- allow cursor navigation in text fields using keyboard arrow keys.
Both these features are work in the default OSx iOS Simulator. Thank you!21 votes
The Xamarin Profiler tool needs to be more readily available to ALL Xamarin developers, not just Enterprise license holders (which is prohibitively expensive for individuals or small companies). The withholding of such a great tool to only the most expensive licenses will surely propagate low quality, un-optimized applications into the market which could severely affect the Xamarin platform adoption rate for developers. Xamarin Profiler needs to be a free tool ( such as Xcode and Android Studio's profiler tools) or significantly more affordable.20 votes
Xamarin.Forms is missing some basic controls and functionality.
Here are some:
- ItemsControl (like WPF)
- Horizontal ListView
I don't want to go any further, and only want to cover the very basic ones.
XF's (IMHO unjustified) agenda is to implement only controls that are natively implemented in all 3 platforms (UWP, Android, iOS).
These elementary controls should be implemented constructed to as natively as possible, but HAS to be there.
Xamarin must make exceptions to this crazy agenda.7 votes
Now that Xamarin.Forms is open source I would love to see the development of it supported on Linux. IntelliJ Rider goes some way to helping achieve that but we still need xaml rendering support and the ability to install the Xamarin SDK on Linux (if this is already possible please let me know how!). I love Linux and it seems to me that there's quite a group moving away from Windows and OS X towards Linux.6 votes
Developing for Android with Xamarin is dreadfully slow if you have a reasonably sized project. Currently one of my projects takes over a minute to build and deploy. This is not workable anymore because it takes me out of my flow.29 votes
UIViewControllers defined in code support generic type parameters. This feature is useful in an MVVM pattern when a given XIB can use different view model sources.
There is, however, no way to do this in a XIB defined view controller. Therefore, a XIB defined view controller cannot use generics for custom view controllers.
Note that if the .designer.cs file is manually edited to add a generic template, it works. The .designer.cs file is, however, overwritten regularly when opening XIB files, requiring that we modify the designer.cs file again.13 votes
Add support for designer to watch changes as soon as we type them in editor like split view. Also add support for refactoring, and provide suggestions like Android Studio does for creating resources like string or colors resources right from layout file. Also support refactoring as soon we type a resource name then it should display matching values like visual studio intellisense works in code editor. Make it better to develop android apps like android studio provides functionality.11 votes
Currently we need to log-in to a real Mac, update or SVN workspace and then fire a build using Xamarin.
It would be very convenient and safe a lot of time to be able to build from a PC using a Mac Agent. It would also make build automation much easier since we can build the target nuget package immediately after msbuild.128 votes
As an individual developer I have a Professional subscription. I build apps for myself as well as for other companies. In order to build good apps I need to profile my apps every now and then. Unfortunately this is not possible anymore because of the changed licenses. I had a Xamarin business license before which suited my needs perfectly. But the professional VS license is now insufficient to do my work because the Xamarin Profiler is missing. The Enterprise license is simply to expensive.147 votes
Reg.: Hyper-V / HAXM: Why not make it possible to debug/run Android apps in emulators running on a mac (like the builds for iOS) ?
If you make Cross-Platform apps for Windows, iOS and Android you constantly have the problem w. Windows Phone simulators using Hyper-V and Android simulators using HAXM.
Why not make it possible to use the same method for Android as for iOS and run/debug Android apps on simulators running on HAXM on macOS ?2 votes
I am a c# developer and I want to use Xamarin, but the designer is making me and everybody frustrated. For Android for isstance, I cannot see XML and Designer side by side. Zooming in both iOS and Android designers is a real pain. Mouse wheel should be used for zooming as standard not by clicking. Believe me these details are so simple but extremely important. These details let developer skip away from C# to Android and Swift, just because of these small things.10 votes
Please update the Xamarin.Forms NuGet packages to use the most recent Xamarin.Android.Support libraries. Currently, using any recent versions of the Google Play Services wrapper or Firebase Cloud Messaging as cross-platform push notification solution is impossible because of the version mismatch.41 votes
even with the option HorizontalOptions="End" it's not enough, not all controls support it.
for example MasterDetailPage i can't make the side menu appear from the right
to make everything work i have to custom render23 votes
Last year on Xamarin Evolve you presented iOS usb remoting - https://blog.xamarin.com/live-from-evolve-new-xamarin-previews/
Since then nothing changed, we still not have an access to this feature but we really need one!116 votes
