Implementing an Extensible Application
In this section:
Set up your development environment to build and run applications that rely on extensibility features.
MAF includes several sample apps that demonstrate the capabilities of the Extensibility Framework:
Creating a New Project
Create a new MAF project.
Implement an Extensible Application
Use the following procedures to build a simple, extensible application. As a result, you will have an app you can enhance and customize without rebuilding.
Adding Built-in Style and Layout Configuration Files
Add the default styling and layout configuration files to the project.
Adding and Accessing Localized Texts
Adding localized texts to your app using MAF is the same as for any native device application development environment.
Localized Offline Demo Data Management
The framework provides support for localized offline data, which enables you to start apps to start in demo mode, allowing customers to have a look at an app without requiring a device connection.
Adding and Accessing Default Images
Bundle default images with your app.
