We’ve already seen what are Activities, the most basic pieces of every Android app and today’s topic is associated with it. We’re going to see how to communicate between Activities (or Application Blocks) using Intents.
Today we’ll see how to add unit tests to Xamarin Android application, testing both platform-independent logic and Android-specific features.
I started to define development tasks to be done within MoneyBack project in the coming days (maybe I’ll even publish my Trello board soon 🙂 ) and it turned out that each functionality the app is going to offer needs persistent storage (e.g. to store people, payments, events etc.). The obvious choice is the local database in which I could store my entities and application’s data.
Today we’re going to take a look at Android’s most basic and in the same time most important concept, which is an Activity. To create even the simplest “HelloWorld” app one should know what are the Activities and how to work with them.
This time I want to say “Hello” to Xamarin world.
First thing that needs to be done before starting Xamarin development, is obviously the installation of all necessary components.
In this post I want to share my feelings about the installation (not without issues of course), configuration of my Xamarin Android solution and deployment process to the device.
