Importing TV Applications

This topic describes how to import existing projects to the Tizen Studio.

You can import existing Tizen projects to Tizen Studio by selecting the root directory or loading an archive file.

To import an existing project:

  1. In the Tizen Studio menu, go to "File > Import". The "Import Wizard" opens.

  2. Select "Tizen > Tizen Project" as the import source, and click "Next".

  5. Click "Next". The names of the Tizen projects in the selected folder or archive appear in the "Project list" table.

  6. Define the profile and version for the projects you want to import.

    Note

    If a "Not installed profile" or "Not installed version" message appears next to a TV application project that you want to import, select a Tizen TV 4.0 profile ("tv-samsung") and version ("4.0") from the "Profile" and "Version" drop-down menus for the project.

    Selecting the Tizen TV 4.0 profile does not change the value of required_version in the application's "config.xml" file. If you want to change required_version, you can change it later using the Tizen Configuration Editor. If you want your application to be compatible with all Samsung Smart TVs released since 2015, required_version must be set to "2.3".
