Hello everybody,

I cant find an example project for detecting IBeacons under Xamarin Android.
Have someone an idea how to achieve this ? I am currently working with the estimote sdk but with no success yet.

Thanks in advance.

    I found
    it works fine.

    It is important to set the Layout for the Parser, otherwise it can not be found. In my case it was the Format "m:2-3=0215,i:4-19,i:20-21,i:22-23,p:24-24"
    to find the ibeacons.

  • I want to convert this sample project's view to xaml and use the newest Xamarin.Forms version, but it is not working...
    @Hansi would you mind giving me a hand?? thanks :smile:

    @LittlePaul Hi, what exactly is not working?

  • @Hansi Hi, thank you so much for responding :smile:
    I want my project with view(xaml) and code not pure code, so I copy this project to the new Xamarin.Forms project that just created.
    And I just convert pure code to xaml in MainPage.cs, other service code is not been changed, but it causes me can't find any beacons... :neutral:

    Thanks very much :blush:
