Visual Studio 2017 - Xamarin.Ios not deplyoing

Dionisio Luis 7 months ago in Build • updated by kkc 7 months ago 3

Good Morning all,

I've started using Oxyplot chart for Xamarin.Ios, and it seems very easy to use it, but my problem is that when i try to debug to any device, it simple give me an error, but doesnt tell me what is wrong.

the only thing I need to do for  the error to occur is to using OxyPlot.Xamarin.iOS; and Visual Studio dont do nothing, if i remove the "using" it start working again....

I'm using Visual Studio 2017 with the latest Xamarin and also using MVVMcross .
Maybe this version of Oxyplot is not compatible with the newer versions ov VS and Xamarin ?

I've the reference : OxyPlot, OxyPlot.Xamarin.IOS 

Can anyone help me please ?

Best Regards,

Dionisio Luis


net standard 2.0 support

Spencer Prost 11 months ago in Build 0

What is the roadmap for covering net standard 2.0 as an output nuget package? Are there plans to do multi-target builds against the full .NET framework (e.g. 4.6.1). As of 2.0.0-unstable1013, it has become difficult to use it in a full .NET 4.7 project due to requiring the entire netstandard library for 1.0 (1.6.1).

Build errors OxyPlot in VS2012

Milan 2 years ago in Build 0

Hi guys,

I have succesfully used the OxyPlot packages from NuGet and now wanted to try my hand on building the source (so I could check out the example browser).

I downloaded the 'stable' version from GitHub, but when I try to build (VS2012 Professional Update 4 on Windows 7) I get a lot of errors. Below are the ones I think are the root cause of all this:

  • CSC : error CS0006: Metadata file 'C:\MyProjects\oxyplot-release-v1.0.0\Source\OxyPlot\bin\x64\Debug\OxyPlot.dll' could not be found
  • C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Microsoft.Common.targets(983,5): warning MSB3644: The reference assemblies for framework ".NETPortable,Version=v4.5,Profile=Profile259" were not found. To resolve this, install the SDK or Targeting Pack for this framework version or retarget your application to a version of the framework for which you have the SDK or Targeting Pack installed. Note that assemblies will be resolved from the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) and will be used in place of reference assemblies. Therefore your assembly may not be correctly targeted for the framework you intend.
  • C:\MyProjects\oxyplot-release-v1.0.0\Source\OxyPlot\Reporting\Report\ItemsTableField.cs(69,46,69,64): error CS1061: 'System.Type' does not contain a definition for 'GetRuntimeProperty' and no extension method 'GetRuntimeProperty' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Type' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I have done my Googling, but no luck so far, Help is much appreciated.




How can I find the source code that was used to build a certain nuget package

abc 2 years ago in Build 0

How can I find the source code that was used to build a certain nuget package, e.g. OxyPlot core library (PCL) 1.0.0-unstable210?

I just used the date now? I saw that the nuget package was published on april 11th 2016, so I was looking at the branches. The was no change on the master branch at this date, so I assume the develop-branch was used. There were 2 commits on april 11th. Can I figure out which one was used to build the nuget package?

Is there a better way or any kind of link between the nuget package and the source code version?

Best Regards


Under review

Eto based backend

Robert Conde 3 years ago in Build • updated by Oystein Bjorke 3 years ago 1
Currently there is an Eto.OxyPlot on nuget:

However, only a WPF version is available. It seems the approach here is to just host the OxyPlot.WPF implementation in Eto.Forms.

I've taken a different approach and created an OxyPlot backend which uses Eto's abstracted rendering interfaces. This way, it becomes available on any platform that is available for Eto.

Are the maintainers interested in merging this back into the OxyPlot repository?

VS2013 Designer will not load with OxyPlot control

Jules Wombat 3 years ago in Build 0
I am attempting to use OxyPlot in my Windows Universal application. I have imported the OxyPlot Core and Universal Packages from NuGet, and Built a simple Application. It runs correctly. However the Visual Studio 2013 Update 4, Designer does not like me inserting a PlotView control. I am unable to design in PlotView control as I just get
"Could Not Find Windows Runtime type "Windows.UI.Xaml.Control.RelativeSource".

See Below


Testing AppVeyor

I am testing AppVeyor. Hopefully it can build OxyPlot and push the NuGet packages!
