I'm starting with iOS-Apps and I have a problem linking storyboard <=> view controller. I've been experimenting a lot with creating iOS Single View Apps and I realised that everything works fine if one goes with the default settings: creating the app in VS for mac I get a Main.storyboard and a ViewController.cs already hooked up. The controls I've added to the design surface get registered in the designer.cs. Running the app produces no error.
However things are different when I don't go with the defaults: deleting the default Main.storyboard and ViewController.cs and replacing them with a separate Storyboard / View Controller file always leads to the following exception:
NSInvalidArgumentException Reason: Could not find a storyboard named ‘Main’ in bundle NSBundle
I've tried a lot of solutions: removing the entry from Info.plist => Deployment Info => Main Interface, deleting the entries in Info.plist with "Main", setting
Info.plist => Deployment Info => Main Interface to the storyboard I've created myself. All this doesn't work and produces the mentioned exception. So I'd like to know whether it is at all possible to set up your own storyboard / view controller combination via the iOS Designer interface or is this only possible only if one goes with the defaults (Main.storyboard, ViewController.cs) or isn't it possible at all to do via the iOS Designer but instead has to be done via code.
Also how would one have to go about, if one wanted to use XIB instead of the storyboard?
My setting is as follows: VS for Mac Community 8.3.10 and Xcode 11.2.1. Any answers or links showing the right direction are very much appreciated.
