Launch Images in Xamarin Studio

Andy_RobinsonAndy_Robinson GBUniversity ✭✭

Can you confirm if the iPad launch image sizes in Version 5.5 of Xamarin Studio are correct? I use both the VS add-in and Xamarin Studio but VS is asking for launch images of a different size to Xamarin Studio and I think it is Xamarin Studio that is incorrect.

For example, Retina Portrait is requesting a launch image sized to 1536x2008 whilst VS is 1536x2048.

It's not a major issue as Xamarin Studio accepts the larger image but it would be good to get it fixed so I don't see warnings.

    If you have "Hide Status Bar" checkbox checked, then the launch image size is 1536x2048, otherwise it is 1536x2008.

    Technically, if you are targeting iOS 7+, then XS should default to the larger size, but the behavior exists for compat with iOS 6 and older.

    I've updated XS to check the MinimumOSVersion string, and, if it is >= 7.0, then it uses the larger size w/o the need to check the Hide Status Bar checkbox.

    Great. Thanks Jeffrey.
