Quick Start Guide for Xamarin.Android

Introduction

This is a brief introduction to using the ShinobiGridView component with Xamarin.Android. We will take you through a series of simple steps introducing the key features of the shinobigrids library.

Firstly we will create a basic grid, we will then create some simple data and finally we shall demonstrate how to display the data within the grid.

The guide assumes you have all your required android version SDKs installed. The SDK manager can be started from within Xamarin Studio (Tools > Open Android SDK Manager…)

For this guide we will assume that you are using Xamarin.Android with Xamarin Studio (see http://xamarin.com/platform for more details). We recommend running the Quick Start project, and the other sample projects, on a physical Android device. This way you will be able to get a better feel of all the touch-based interactions. That said, it is possible to run the samples on the Android Emulator.
