Using iOS 7.1 SDK with RemObjects C# or Oxygene
As you’ve probably seen, iOS 7.1 is out — and with it, a new SDK. Anxious to use iOS 7.1 with RemObjects C# or Oxygene? No problem. our Importing a New or Beta SDK for Use with Elements for Cocoa article on the wiki explains how to do it:
Launch FXGen by right-clicking CrossBox:
Once you have downloaded/updated to Xcode 5.1 from the App Store, find the Xcode.app in in your /Applications folder and drag it into the app:
Select iOS 7.1 from the dropdown:
Click “Start Import”
FXGen will run a for a short while, and then you have .fx files for the iOS 7.1 SDK you can use. Just copy them to the “C:\Program Files (x86)\RemObjects Software\Elements\Nougat\SDKs” folder in your PC or VM, and you’re off running.
Of course these same steps will also work for importing beta SDKs (which we won’t be able to tell you about, because of NDAs) – for example when Apple starts seeing iOS 8.0 or the next version of OS X later this year. This way, you can start working with the cool new stuff right away — without having to wait for anyone to create wrappers for you.
It goes without saying that now that iOS 7.1 is officially out, our next release (and Friday’s upcoming beta) will include the .fx files for iOS 7.1 out of the box.
