Disabled Camara Icon in Xamarin profiler V0.18
The Camera Icon in the menu is always disabled. I assume it is there for manually taking a snap shot by clicking it. Is there a way to enable it, or is this feature not implemented up to now?
Answer from Xamarin Developer:
Yes, it's for manually taking snapshots, so it should be enabled when live profiling (not when reading a static MLPD). So, under which circumstances is it disabled for you? Are you live profiling? What kind of app? If it shows disabled for you when live profiling, it's a bug.
I'm doing just live profiling. I have not used MLPD stuff up to now, so I think it is a bug. Icon is always disabled. I Never saw the icon enabled. I have an Android App build for Android >= 4.4 and a Google Nexus 5 mobile running Android 5.1.1. My App uses Android Support Library V4. Today I have installed Xamarin Profiler 0.19. Now the camera icon changed to a dot but it is still disabled.
I have also reported this issue first in Xamarin Proiler Forum under
but Xamarin Developer asked me to enter it in Bugzilla, so it will be not forgotten.
Do you have autosnap shots ticked in the Tools->Options->Snapshots screen? If so, then this is by design the camera icon will not be enabled when autosnap shot is on.

Options - No Auto Snapshot
Started profiling my app. Opened Tools -> Options -> SnapShots and disabled the "Auto Snapshots" checkbox.

Profiler continues to run. The "record" button never enables and it still takes periodic snapshots on it's own.
I am experiencing the same issue as the original poster with the Windows version 0.20. Un-ticking the "Auto Snapshots" option does not enable the "Record" button and the profiler still performs periodic snapshots on it's own. In fact, I have never seen the button enabled with any configuration I have tried. I have attached a few screen shots to show the behavior. Please let me know if you need more information.
Ok, I guess we are not clearing the setting when you disable it, so re-opening
Fixed, will be in the next public build
I have checked this issue with XamarinProfiler.Windows.Installer.0.21-69 and I am able to take snapshots when option 'Auto Snapshots' is disabled. Hence I am closing this issue.

@Doug, please feel free to re-open this if you are still getting this issue with latest profiler build.
