General User Experience (UX) coverage including User Interface (UI) controls, use Xcode's Interface Builder and UX design principles when working with Xamarin.tvOS.

Overview

When working with C# and .NET in a Xamarin.tvOS app, you have access to the same User Interface controls that a developer working in in Objective-C or Swift and Xcode does. Because Xamarin.tvOS integrates directly with Xcode, you can use Xcode's Interface Builder to create and maintain your User Interfaces (or optionally create them directly in C# code).

The guides listed below give detailed information about working with tvOS UI elements in a Xamarin.tvOS app. It is highly suggested that you work through the Hello, tvOS Quick Start Guide first, as it covers key concepts and techniques that we'll be using in every article.
