* When working with a Native app, in the device simulator, you will see a preview of the business logic and functionality of your NativeScript app. The UI for this preview has been generated using Kendo UI Mobile and might not resemble the UI as it will look on an actual device.
For Native apps, you cannot preview views generated from custom templates.
