Shortcuts in Xamarin Studio

December 01, 2016 | 0 Minute Read

Xamarin Studio is a great IDE for working with Xamarin technologies. With a Windows and Visual Studio background the IDE can be a bit confusing regarding shortcuts. Here are some of the shortcuts I find very useful.

Toggle between XAML & code behiend

When using Xamarin Forms, you often work in a XAML file and from time to time need to navigate to its code behiend C# file or vice versa.

CTRL + CMD + Arrow Up

Easy openfile & window navigation

When you open the openfile/window dialog in Xamarin Studio ALT + TAB its by default not easy to use the arrow keys to jump between the files.

If you release the TAB key and press

CTRL + TAB -> CTRL + CMD + Arrow key(s)

you can now jump easily between the files in the dialog

I’ll keep this post updated when I find new shortcuts.
