Xamarin.Forms 4.2.0 has been released, with significant changes for the Tizen .NET platform.

What has changed?

The namespaces of major classes were changed to what they are in other platforms. For example, Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Tizen is now Xamarin.Forms.

For more details, see an actual Pull Request on Xamarin.Forms.

  • Changed classes are:
    • Forms
    • ExportRendererAttribute
    • ExportCellAttribute
    • ExportImageSourceHandlerAttribute
    • ExportHandlerAttribute
    • ViewInitialzedEventArgs
    • TizenTitleBarVisibility

How to apply changes in your application

Forms initialization code is changed as follows:

Previous

global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Tizen.Forms.Init(app);

Verson 4.2.0 change

Forms.Init(app);

Creating a native control in Custom Renderers was changed as follows:

Previous

new MyButton(Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Tizen.Forms.NativeParent);

Verson 4.2.0 change

new MyButton(Forms.NativeParent);

You may also need to change static APIs you have used, which have older namespaces.

These changes are significant, and you may want further information. Check out the Xamarin.Forms Release notes.
