Unit Testing with Xamarin.Forms DependencyService

Unit Testing with Xamarin.Forms DependencyService

That makes hard to mock our services in unit tests, as the ViewModel is the responsible to resolve the dependencies internally. But there is a way to easily overcome this situation without loosing functionality.

Xamarin.Forms 2.1: Effects

0 ( 0 reviews)
Until v2.1, the only one way of customizing the native view of a Xamarin.Forms control was to use a CustomRender, and this ask the developer to complete rewrite the control in native code.
