Tizen .NET API Reference

Tizen .NET provides a rich set of interfaces allowing you to build compelling TV, mobile, and wearable applications which achieve native performance. The programming environment includes the following:

.NET Standard API

One of the major components of .NET Core is the .NET Standard. The .NET APIs provided by Tizen .NET follow the .NET Standard 2.0. The column titled as 2.0 in the official list of the supported CoreFX APIs lists all the available .NET APIs.

There are limitations of .NET Standard API on Tizen. For more information, see Limitations of .NET Standard API on Tizen.


TizenFX API allows applications to call into platform-specific functionality from the shared code. This functionality enables Xamarin.Forms applications to do things a native application can do, without causing the portable part of the application to become littered with operating system-specific details.

The following table lists the supported TizenFX API namespaces. For full specification, see the TizenFX API reference.
