Here we examine how Xamarin Inspector can be used to interactively change values of UI components in a running Xamarin application.
- [Instructor] Xamarin Inspector can be used…to do more than just look at how native controls…are structured in a running application.…It allows us to modify them…on a running application as well.…So let's open up a running application…for this chapter and subsection.…So I'm going to go to File, Open,…ProjectSolution, and under 02_03,…open up our OldCar solution.…And close this window.…We want to run the iOS simulator, so I'm going to make sure…that the iOS project is selected, and we're in debug mode.…
And ensure that we have a valid iOS simulator selected.…Then we'll run the app on the iPhone 6 simulator.…Once the app is running, I'm going to move the simulator…off to the side and go to Debug…and start a Live Inspect session.…Here we have our app running the iOS simulator,…and with Xamarin Inspector open,…and we're going to click on the View Inspector button…to view the structure of our UI.…If we click on a Select A View button,…we can then click on a control in the simulator.…
