Xamarin Forms Previewer Not available RRS feed

  • Question

  • User229479 posted

    I'm using VS2017 Community and I keep seeing things about Xamarin Forms Previewer but I don't see it anywhere when trying to view my form.

    is it not available on the community edition? did they ditch it for something else? I'm lost and frustrated.

    I don't have access to a mac at the moment so is that possibly a problem?

    I'd greatly prefer to not have to build and run to make sure everything looks right, especially when I'm new to xamarin forms

    after tinkering around I got it working, oddly enough the Mac instructions was what worked (I'm using Windows 10) so not sure why or what, but I'm good now

    I've assume that you already read this article: XAML Previewer for Xamarin.Forms
