Does Xamarin Studio have support for LINQ.

If so, an example project plz.

    Yes, it does. Just add a reference to System.Core on your projects, and using System.Linq; in you C# files.

    OK...does the free version of xamarin studio support the building of any source code? or do you have to buy the business version?

  • JeffreyStedfastJeffreyStedfast USXamarin Team Xamurai

    Xamarin Studio is the IDE and has no Business Edition, it is just plain free and can be used to build normal C# projects w/o any need to buy a license.

    Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.Mac are the products that have various editions, some of which require licenses.

    Hope that clarifies a bit.

    "...Error: The Unknown Edition of Xamarin.Mac does not support building outside of Xamarin Studio. Please go to to upgrade to the Business Edition..."

    ...That is the error I get when trying to compile something. Is there a recommended sample that I can try and compile that is guaranteed not to generate this error...?

    How can I replace Xamarin.Mac with Xamarin Studio?

    ...on OSX...?

    That error means that you don't have Xamarin.Mac installed and are trying to compile a Xamarin.Mac sample.

    The Xamarin.Mac product is the set of bindings for Mac's native UI library.

    You need to open a standard .NET project if you don't have any of the pay-for Xamarin products installed.
