Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Debug mobile apps with emulators, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 06 Debug and Troubleshoot Code.
- When you install Visual Studio…with the mobile option selected…it adds a set of mobile emulators to your computer.…These emulators are available as deploy…and debug locations when working in mobile projects.…You get a set of emulators for Android devices…and another set for Windows Phone.…Be aware, if you didn't install the mobile options…or Xamarin during the Visual Studio install…you won't be able to follow along with this demonstration.…For this demonstration I have three projects…in this solution.…I have a Portable Class Library,…which contains all the common code…that I'll use across my Android…and my Windows Phone applications.…
Know that you can also have an iOS application…but I took it out of this project…because I didn't want to complicate things…and with the iOS application you have to have a map…for the build server, so I took that out.…Then I have an Android specific project…and a Windows Phone specific project.…Now the point of this demonstration…is to show you that when I write code…and debug it, I can run it in the emulator…
