Preview feature

There are some limitations on the things Xamarin Live Player can run, including the items below:

  • Android user interfaces designed with AXML files are not currently supported.
  • Some iOS storyboard features are not supported.
  • iOS XIB files are not supported.
  • Custom Renderers are not supported.
  • Limited support for reflection (currently affects some popular NuGets, like SQLite and Json.NET). Other NuGets are still supported.
  • Some system classes cannot be overridden (for example, you cannot implement a subclass).
  • Some platform features that require provisioning can't work in the Xamarin Live Player app (however it has been configured for common operations like camera access).
  • Custom targets and build steps are ignored. For example, tools like Fody cannot be incorporated.
🚫

NOTE: Xamarin Live Player does not work with Xamarin Studio

Please report any additional issues on bugzilla.

Xamarin Workbook

If it's not already installed, install the Xamarin Workbooks app first. The workbook file should download automatically, but if it doesn't, just click to start the workbook download manually.
