Sign your application

Before you can distribute your application for use, you must sign it. The signing tool adds cryptographic hash values to the .bar file during the signing process. This helps to verify the authorship of your application to users.

If you build your application in Release mode, you do not have to follow these steps. Using Release mode automatically sets Development mode to No.

  1. In the Solution Explorer, right-click your application and choose Properties from the context menu.
  2. In the Properties window, in the left navigation pane, in the Packager section, click General.
  3. In the right navigation pane, select Development mode.
  4. Change the value of the Development mode to No.
  5. Build your application.
