You should better use open-source MonoDevelop instead:[^],[^].

Well, the latest version. Yes, I used it on Mac OS X (on Snow Leopard though; but it will work on your system).


For Cocoa development, you need to use MonObjC:[^],[^].

You would need to use XCode if you develop native applications. As you use Mono, you are developing code for CLI which is implemented in Mono, and here you can use MonoDevelop.

I have tried Xcode 3.2.6 ,but its giving an error ,don't know why ,It terminates at the end of installation.

None. My advice was to use MonoDevelop, not XCode.

but to develop GUI ,I have to go for cocoa ,for which I will have to use Xcode
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 15-Oct-12 13:15pm
No. If you use Cocoa and Mono, you have to use MononjC. And you can do it with MonoDevelop.

but monodevelop does not provide GUI development for monomac applications
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 16-Oct-12 12:18pm
Not true. It does.

please look at above link

Sorry, I'm not sure about Monomac. At first, you did not mentioned this foundation; you only asked about developing with Mono for Mac OS X, and later mentioned Cocoa. I personally developed all of the above using Mono + MonobjC; and then MonoDevelop is a way to go. It looks like Monomac is a newer alternative to MonobjC, not quite sure.

MonoMac is option given by monodevelop ,to develop Mac application ,is is just like MonoTouch ,MonoAndroid
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 17-Oct-12 13:25pm
So, you can use MonoDevelop IDE.
Ankit Kul 18-Oct-12 3:23am
but ,monodevelop IDE does not provide facility to create UI for MonoMac
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 18-Oct-12 13:52pm
Maybe; sorry, I did not try to use MonoMac yet.
