Create an iOS solution in VS2012
Add any other UI project you wish to support.
Grab MvvmCross in NuGet for all of these projects.
Add a new project with type Portable Class Library (PCL).
This will be your core library which is shared between all UIs.
Here I was confused about the PCL part .. People say PCL project will be the core that would be used by all the UI's ??
I have a set of Viewmodels which use the Data Access Layer, Business logic, Models ( Currently these are not PCL libraries and they are class libraries build based on the project type for IOS and android)
Now each of my Data Access layer, Business Logic, Models sit as separate dll's -- type is class libraries
Most importantly all my dll's are making use of references that are not available when I try to create a PCL core library
1. Can the PCL Core project(that is used across UI's) can refer to these libraries ???? I mean in IOS it would refer to IOS version of dll's, in android it would refer to android version of the dll's ( sorry for being naive)
I couldn't compile the PCL Core by linking my models, business logic, DAL files inside the PCL core project ( as the references for these are not available in PCL project type)
I wasn't even able to find the basic modules listed here : like System.SerivceModel in the PCL project
Do we need to install anything extra there?
I wasn't able to compile because DllImport keyword is missing. This comes from MScorelib.dll
Also System.Threading.Tasks; is missing
My .NET portable subset library path : **C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework.NETPortable\v4.0\Profile\Profile104**
When I create a PCL based project above is the default reference that gets added
2. All the viewModels would be part of the PCL Core mvvmcross project ? Atleast I could understand this part from the examples
