custom settings in iOS settings app RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1694 posted

    How do I create a custom settings dialog in iOS, that can be found in the iOS settings app?

    XAMARIN automatically creates an entry in the settings app which contains several "Debug settings"-groups. Is it possible to modify them?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    @jp99 this is only for debug builds. Real builds dont have that.

    you can add yours in the same way that you do with ObjC:

    • Make a folder called Settings.bundle
    • Add a new Property List to that called "Root.plist"
    • Edit it and add preferences items

    More info on the preference items is here:
