Visual studio 2017 - Xamarin agent popup list accepts mac server details; however, does not save it. therefore for every time has to use 'Add Server' button. Any way to fix this issue?
\hello, first can you please provide the full information of your environment?
Easiest way to get exact version information:
- On Visual Studio for Mac: "Visual Studio" menu, "About Visual Studio" item, "Show Details" button.
- On Visual Studio for Windows: "Help menu", "About Microsoft Visual Studio" item.
Then copy/paste the version information (you can use the "Copy Information" button).
Nevertheless this looks like a bug in visual studio and not Xamarin.iOS.dll.
What do you exactly mean by "Xamarin agent popup list accepts mac server details"?
Is it connecting to the desired Mac successfully or are you getting any connection error? If the connection is successful, then the Mac should be saved as a "known server", getting it saved and shown the next time you open the Server Selector dialog.
I can't reproduce the mentioned issue, so it would be good if you can provide more information about the repro (maybe a screencast) and also the VS logs (Ide.log) from: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\Logs\<version>\
