Using Visual Studio (for windows) to Bind to Objective-C project

Hello -

I have been researching how to do this from my VS environment in Windows but not finding anything specific. I see many references to Objective Sharpie (and that might be for the creation of the IOS library) but can't find a download. I have a .a file on my Mac and need to configure my IOS Binding project in VS and how to navigate to it. I apologize in advance but just haven't found out how to proceed from here. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Looks like a great resource. I have VS for Mac however I work primarily from my windows environment. Do you suggest I move the ios library to my windows machine? Is there a way to reference it directly from my mac build host

    Refer to that link, you can create binding project with the static library file both on mac or windows.

    After building successfully with binding project , you can reference the dll to your main project for use.

    Hey @ColeX

    It appears what I need is some insight into creating the Objective-C binding, not the Xamarin Binding Project. I have Objective Sharpie, but it looks like it may not be supported any longer. Not sure what the case is so any insight is greatly appreciated
