Running a WinForms App on Mac Using Xamarin


  • I have a WinForms app I'm developing in C# using VS Community 2015 (Version 14.0.25123.00 Update 2) with SQLite as the dbms.  Part of the UI includes a DataGridView that works in somewhat fancy ways via various event handling.

    I would like to be able to run the app on a Mac platform and have been reading about using Xamarin to do that.  Since Xamarin seems to have undergone a lot of development/new direction in recent years, I'm looking for a way to plow past what I'm guessing may be distracting older documentation that's no longer relevant and may even be distracting.  So, I'm looking for guidance on how to find the right documentation including the right forum to use when I have questions I can't seem to answer myself.

    Thx.  Steve

  • Hi Thx.  Steve,

    According to your description, you want to get more documents about Xamarin for Mac platform, am I right?

    I think you could get more documents about Xamarin from the following link. Which share us more documents about Xamarin.IOS api and some samples.

    And if you have some doubts during Xamarin developing, you could post your questions or doubts to the following forum for a professional answer.
