Need help with Remote Control + question on Xamarin.Forms

Thu, 19 Jul 2018 12:41:55 GMT

Hi, According to the docs, Continuous can be used as a Xamarin Live Player client. I'm trying to use this feature but I can't, for the life of me, find the claimed remote icon on the projects tab, either on my iPhone X or iPad Pro 10.5". I just checked and my app is updated to version 1.2 (downloaded on July 14th), which I assume is the latest. Funnily enough, when looking at the app's built-in help, the section on Remote Control (section 8 of the help file on the web site) is completely missing. Is it possible this is a feature planned for a future version and "leaked" on the website docs? If not, I could really use some help enabling it. Second question: if I have a Xamarin.Forms project created in Visual Studio on a PC, can I import it into Continuous and use the app to develop it, without requiring access to a Mac? I understand that publishing the app and so on will require a Mac, I'm just wondering if the bulk of the development and testing can happen inside Continuous. Are there are limitations if I try to do this (unsupported libraries, etc.)? I ask because I'm teaching a class in which I intend to use Xamarin.Forms, and students may have access to iPhones but not a Mac (I have one, but none of them do). Continuous looks like a workable way for them to do iPhone development without a Mac, and in this case I will recommend them to buy the app for the class.

I think this was removed. It was in a beta, but as I remember it, Frank had some issues and disabled the feature. I didn’t realise it was documented. When it worked, there was a clear way to do it in the UI, so I think that it is no longer available at the moment.
