Xamarin for Windows Developers 101: Introduction

OK so you have been creating Windows apps for ages including UWP. You have developed apps that run on the Windows desktop and the phone. You understand the rudiments of developing a modern UI app MVM etc. You understand PEM, properties events and methods for classes and GUI elements. You understand database CRUD can attach a database to an app using formal database invocation methods. You might even have mastered the Entity Framework and/or have a deep understanding of ORM. Overall, in coding terms, when confronted with a new programming context you know what you want to do and how you do with UWP or Windows Forms; you just need to do it in the new context. Xamarin Forms, bring it on!

Bluetooth Low Energy on Windows 10 Creators Edition and a RPi3 issue.

Several months ago I published a UWP app on GitHub that interacted with a Texas Instruments CC2650STK  SensorTag using the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) API.  It was based upon a previous Microsoft sample UWP app for interacting with an earlier TI SensorTag. Whilst the new app ran well on the Windows 10  Desktop and Windows 10 Phone, it was found to be erratic on the Raspberry Pi3 running Windows 10 IoT-Core.. working well some times but errant other times. Windows 10 Creators Edition added a key feature to BLE, namely the ability to connect to a device that is advertising without being paired. This blog examines the erratic nature of the RPi3 with BLE and investigates whether this is solved with the Creators Edition. In so do a comparison is made between between BLE Paired and Unpaired connectivity in the UWP app development context..

More GEMS: Kept getting Network Access Required in a Universal App–An hr or 2 later!

I’m creating a Windows 10 Universal Phone App that talks to a Web Service to post an entity (object) in Microsoft SQL Server running on the same machine as the Web Service. Initially did all including the app on my laptop using localhost as the network target. Solved the SQL Server credentials .. OK. But when I switch to using the laptop’s system name or its IP address (all still running on same machine) got Network Access Required error.

Little GEMS: XAML page not linked to its Codebehind Page .. Solution


In developing a Universal Windows app, when you add an existing XAML and its Codebehind page, they often end up unlinked in the Solution Explorer. This limits the ability to autogenrate event handlers in the codebehind page for UI elements.Spaso Lazarevic has a good solution that involves a little editing of the project file.

Win 10 IoT Core: Universal Windows Apps Sideloading (Updated)

This is a work in progress. The objective is to be able to directly load a Universal Windows App from an Appx package on a Windows 10 IoT RPI2, The blocking issue is a PIN requirement. I can package up the app and deploy it to my development machine and a Win 10 phone but not to my RPI2. Updated for Web Portal IoT Package installation.
