I don't even know where to start
Since alpha 2019.3 Unity offers the feature "Unity as a Library" https://blogs.unity3d.com/2019/06/17/add-features-powered-by-unity-to-native-mobile-apps/ which I'm currently trying to integrate into one of our Xamarin Apps.
There are descriptions how to do that natively for Android and iOS which I got both working fine.
Just for reference:
This is actually a really big deal so it is great working on it
However, I got it working fine for Xamarin Android. Now I'm trying on iOS which appears to be much more complicated.
The unity project will be exported as a native Objective-C++ framework (I think at least as there are .mm files using Objective C)
When using Sharpie to bind the framework I get a super large APIDefinitions file.
After some research I figured out that I have to define a scope to the Headers of the Framework, then the APIDefinitions are in fact much smaller and only reference the header files.
Now to my (current) problem:
If I open the ApiDefinitions then there is an interface UnityFramewok which comes from the UnityFramework.h file.
But this header holds a reference to a class UnityView which is not part of the headers. It is within the framework( at least it is within the Library project in Xcode so I assume it is bundled into the framework.)
I copied the .framework into the bindings Native References but I can't see any actual change happening when I do that.
The UnityView can not be found within the interface and I also can't import it from the library because the native reference is not available.
So how can I reference to a class of the framework from within an interface that is defined in the ApiDefinitions?
Thank you already!
