Description Mark Smith 2013-12-31 10:48:49 UTC
When creating a new Android project, the Android manifest options are not set - it is missing the application name, version and icon setting.  These are set to default values when creating the project with Xamarin Studio and should be set here as well.  In addition, the main Activity added has the Icon set on the ActivityAttribute in Visual Studio, but does not in Xamarin Studio - we should be consistent so I'm filing it here but it might require a change to the Xamarin Studio template for this.

I have checked this issue and getting the below observations:

1. When creating a new Android project in VS, the Android manifest options are getting display same as in XS.

Screencast of source: http://screencast.com/t/UI91j08cPhsR

2. Main Activity: Icon set is not getting displayed in Xamarin Studio. However,it's displaying in VS.

Environment info:

Second part of this issue still persist. so, I am reopening this issue for observation 2.

Is this a bug for VS or XS? i.e should we remove the icon code in VS or add it in XS?

If its XS that needs to change we need to change the product and assign it to one of the XS team to fix.

observation 2: Main Activity: Icon set is not getting displayed in Xamarin Studio.
However,it's displaying in VS. This issue exist in XS. So I filed a new Bug 19163 for the same in XS product.

Hence. I am closing this issue.
