I want to use .aar files in xamarin.forms android project. I tried with Binding Library, but unable to access classes from .aar file. Can any one suggest me how to do that?
Thanks in Advance.

    Are you trying to access the aar directly?
    Because you're supposed to build the binding library, then use the C# that is generated from that.
    In other words, once you build the binding lib, you should then be able to access the namespaces from the library.

    Yah... No. You make a binding library project. It is its own project within you solution.

    Probably best to read the documentation on Xamarin Binding Library
