Create xamrin foms application with Android project

project

  • In .net standard project add a Interface

{
void ShowToastMessage(string message);
}

  • In Android project add ToastMessageService and implement the IToastMessageService
[assembly: Xamarin.Forms.Dependency(typeof(ToastMessageService))]
namespace ToastTestXamarin.Droid
{
public class ToastMessageService : IToastMessageService

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"
