XAF Mobile (Maintenance Mode) Tutorial

  • 2 min to read

The Mobile UI is in maintenance mode. However, our installation still includes the Mobile UI. We continue to provide support and fix critical bugs, but we do not create new features. Once the new SPA UI is mature, it should cover all the Mobile UI scenarios and also provide new functionality. Refer to the New XAF HTML5/JavaScript SPA UI for Web & Mobile (CTP) KB article for more information on the SPA UI.

With XAF Mobile, you can generate iOS and Android apps and allow users to access XAF application data from their smartphones. These mobile apps will reuse the database, as well as other aspects of the data model, application logic and UI settings of an existing XAF application.


It is presumed that you have already reviewed the Comprehensive Tutorial and created an XPO-based XAF application. Here, you will learn how to add a mobile client to the MySolution application you developed.


The Mobile UI supports business model design with eXpressPersistent Objects (XPO) only. Entity Framework (EF) and Domain Components (DC) are not supported.

Prior to following the steps in this tutorial, make sure you have the ASP.NET MVC 4 installed. A free download is available on the ASP.NET Website. By default, it is installed automatically with Visual Studio 2012 or later.

It is recommended that you perform the lessons listed below sequentially.
