Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
When answering a question please:
Read the question carefully
Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar
If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or mark it down. Insults are not welcome
If the question is inappropriate then click the 'vote to remove message' button
Insults, slap-downs and sarcasm aren't welcome. Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
I recently started freelancing. I have a portfolio with several works from my college. Some projects were compelling. On the stock exchanges, clients offer not suitable pay. Maybe there are some fresh UI / UX designers here. What determines the cost of mobile app design?
var url = "https:" + "//localhost:44302/api/Customer/Get?Id=1";
Unless your Android (or the mobile device) has a local server running on the machine that can respond to a localhost:44302 request, you will not receive a response and request will likely timeout and fail.
There are several ways to connect to a localhost based website:
You have a physical Android device that you are using for testing
You are using a virtualized device for testing
If you have a physical device, then try to send the request to the host (your development machine)'s IP address with the port number; for example, change localhost:44302 to 192.168.1.17:44302 (assuming your machine's address on the same network is 192.168.1.17)
If you are using the virtualized then this gets complicated and depends on several factors; what network setting is being used, which OS you are using, does the virtualization software support host-connections, etc. etc.
Oh, and the best of these is to use an online proxy that can tunnel your Android device with the local machine; something like NgRok can help here.
This would "only" work if you have a machine or a process that is listening on 192.168.1.149 @ 44302. This is more likely a networking issue rather than an Android/PC problem. And, when you are on the same machine, you should always use 127.0.0.1 (aka localhost) instead of the machine's own private IP address.
Oh, one more tip, try only http:// and not the https://, or you will end up running in the SSL errors and you might assume the machine is down.

I'm going to be bulding a Xamarin Forms app for a client in the construction industry. I can publish directly to my tablet via Visual Studio. But what options are there for gettting the app and updates to my client's tablets?
This isn't going to be a commercially available app that anyone can download from the app store. It's only for use on my client's tablets.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
I am using VS2015, Windows-10 Home. When I try to install, Visual Studio Android Emulator, it asked me to install Hyper-V, and then I installed. But now Iam receiving the message like Visual Studio Android Emulator can not installed in Windows 10 Home. Is there any solution.
In that case you first need to decide which language to use. If you already know Java then go for Android Studio, if C# then you may like to try Xamarin Forms. If you are not experienced in either of these languages then you have a long way to go before you can even start to think about how to build this application. There are lots of articles at Mobile Development[^] which can help.
