Xamarin CustomView Example

Github repo

Example project showing how to create a custom control (UIView) with XIB so that it's available in Xamarin iOS designer. Custom UIView does not render in storyboard, but can be selected from the toolbox window. If you make rendering in storyboard work, please make a pull request and I will merge it into this repo. The reason to this example project simply is that I was looking for an example like this but could not find something that was working out of the box.

Design custom view in xib using Visual Studio or Xcode (less buggy):

xib

CustomView is visible in Toolbox:

CustomView can be droped into your storyboard:

Simulator run. View can also be resized/rotated during runtime:

Getting Started

Clone and run .sln in Visual Studio.

Prerequisites

Visual Studio (Tested on Visual Studio CE 2017)

Our game Bananpiren now has music

My brother Jonathan Nilsson knows a great music guy; Viktor Envall, that agreed to create custom music with inspiration from Harry Brandelius ("det har kommit en båt med bananer"), and Fred Åkerström ("Gamla Nordsjön").

Website: education.strawbees.com

Previously I worked with programming a new website for strawbees.com, and the second project was to create a similar website to a new target group; educators. To separate the education site from the retail site we divided them on two subdomains. Layout is mostly the same but color schemes and some minor functionalities differ.

Website: Strawbees.com

Together with the briliant mind of studiooddball we created a refreshed website for Strawbees; a Swedish toy company. She did the design and I did all the programming. Some features:

  • Online store
  • Driven by WordPress, PHP and MySQL
  • Custom javascript to showcase their play guides
  • Responsive design

Check out their website

 

Working on a game in Unity3D

Together with my brother we are creating a game for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows. Currently a work in progress but it is starting to be rather fun and challanging gameplay.

Computer graphics is done by my brother; Jonathan Nilsson at Crocoraff.com. I do the C# programming in Unity3D which is quite pleasant to work with. The whole project is open sourced at github.

Website: Lumlyx.com

In colaboration with Studio Oddball, I made a simple yet functional WordPress website for Lumlyx. The website is made with responsiveness in mind to make sure it is usable on mobile devices. Check it out at lumlyx.com

Almost completely quiet pc

I hate computer noise but I love computers and it was time for a new computer purchase. My first approach was to buy everything passive (GPU, CPU, PSU) but apparently there are not many components that fit those constraints. Instead I went for semi-passive components that only run their fans if necessary. I chose:

  • low power CPU to not generate too much heat
  • gigantic CPU cooler to eliminate the need of a fan
  • just one big case running on very low rpm to transfer heat out of the chassis

Full component list for a quiet pc

Booting up is a bit noisy because the GPU fans and the HDDs throttle up. But after a few seconds it is almost completely quiet.

Cpac Systems: Rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping is a great way of researching concepts for new products. Recently I got the task of making a proof-of-concept for a Bluetooth device that needed to communicate with smart phones. In a matter of weeks I could present a interface hardware written in C++ and Arduino, together with a rather simple but fully functional mobile app.

Cpac Systems: Inventor in patent applications

When developing new features for marine applications now and then I have the opportunity to work with solving complex problems. Sometimes the solution to those problems are sufficiently good to be patented. I have written numerous internal innovation declarations and a few of them have made it further than others. Right now I am the sole inventor of one patent which is pending in Sweden, and also co-inventor of two patents being filed by one of our company partners (patents also pending).

Cpac Systems: Automated build environment

I have been responsible for automating a large portion of the software build environment for Cpac Systems marine products. Basically new software is built by an automated build server every time someone commits new code to the software repository, but also on request when a software release needs to be done. I have automated the build and release processes piece by piece and now (with a few exceptions) we can release a new software for a large batch of products in a matter of minutes, compared to before when a software release could take a day. The reason for this is Python scripts that handle the complete build and documentation process of every software, which is done in parallell for a multitude of products. Before this process would be done by individuall software programmers for "their product" on build day.
