Step 8

In this step, go to the ViewController.cs page. Write the code given below.

  1. using System;  
  2. using CoreGraphics;  
  3. using UIKit;  
  4. using Foundation;  
  5. namespace XamariniOSScrollView {  
  6.     public partial class ViewController: UIViewController {  
  7.         UIScrollView scrollView;  
  8.         UIImageView imageView;  
  9.         protected ViewController(IntPtr handle): base(handle) {  
  10.             // Note: this .ctor should not contain any initialization logic.  
  11.         }  
  12.         public override void ViewDidLoad() {  
  13.             base.ViewDidLoad();  
  14.             // Perform any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.  
  15.             scrollView = new UIScrollView(new CGRect(0, 0, View.Frame.Width, View.Frame.Height));  
  16.             View.AddSubview(scrollView);  
  17.             imageView = new UIImageView(UIImage.FromFile("Xamarin.jpg"));  
  18.             scrollView.ContentSize = imageView.Image.Size;  
  19.             scrollView.AddSubview(imageView);  
  20.         }  
  21.         public override void DidReceiveMemoryWarning() {  
  22.             base.DidReceiveMemoryWarning();  
  23.             // Release any cached data, images, etc that aren't in use.  
  24.         }  
  25.     }  
  26. }  
  27. }  

Step 9

Now, go to Run option, choose Debug and the list of iPhone and iPad Simulators, which are available. You can choose any one Simulator and run it.


After few seconds, the app will start running on your iPhone Simulator.You will see your app working successfully. You can scroll the image. Scroll will work successfully.


This was the process of how to create a Scroll View in Xamarin iOS, using Xamarin Studio.
