Filing Inspector Bugs

Platform Version Information

This information is vital.

Visual Studio For Mac

  • Visual Studio -> About Visual Studio -> Show Details -> Copy Information
  • Paste into bug report

Xamarin Studio

  • Xamarin Studio -> About Xamarin Studio -> Show Details -> Copy Information
  • Paste into bug report

Visual Studio

  • Screenshot Help -> About Visual Studio
  • Let us know your Operating System version and whether you are running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows.

Log Files

Always attach both IDE and Inspector client log files.

Inspector client

  • Mac: ~/Library/Logs/Xamarin/Inspector/Xamarin Inspector {date}.log
  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\Inspector\logs\Xamarin Inspector {date}.log

Visual Studio For Mac

  • ~/Library/Logs/VisualStudio/7.0/Ide.log

Xamarin Studio

  • ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-6.0/Ide.log

Visual Studio

  • %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\Logs\{VS version}\Inspector {date}.log
  • The contents of the Visual Studio Output pane may also be informative.

Project Settings

If you can attach the .csproj for the project you are trying to inspect, it would be extremely helpful. This is easier than asking about individual settings.

Also please confirm that you are in Debug configuration.

Selected Devices

For Android and iOS, it is vital that we know what device you are debugging on when you want to inspect. We need to know:

  • Name of device as shown in your IDE
  • OS version of your device
  • Android: Verify that you are using an x86 emulator
  • Android: What emulator platform are you using? Google Emulator? Visual Studio Android Emulator? Xamarin Android Player?
  • Does the app you are debugging properly appear and function in the device?
  • Does the device have network connectivity (check via web browser)?
