Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit – Aug 2011.msi
Install the package
Connect Expression Blend to the Toolkit!
This is how you do it:
Add a reference to your project by right clicking on references.
then browse here to find the reference you need to add.
Add a reference in the MainPage.xaml
Select “code view” – dont be afraid, we are just going to copy paste.
Add this line of code to the start: xmlns:toolkit=”clr-namespace:Microsoft.Phone.Controls;assembly=Microsoft.Phone.Controls.Toolkit”
Now just start adding HubTiles.
You find the HubTiles here
Sixth and finally:
Now, to add content to the HubTile you have to use the “code view” dont be afraid, its just to add text! look at my sample below. You find the code in the MainPage.xaml
The art of making a Windows Phone App with little or no coding at all.
Index: Code sample Step 1 – Find the object you want to click on. You find this object in the “Objects and Timeline” Step 2 – Select the Item and click the “Event button” Step 3 – Create touch tap event Step 4 – Copy/Pasta code
How to navigate from your app into a website using your phone browser.
Here is a picture of what happens in my app:
So, what is going on.
First, for all pro coders here is the what I did: -dont panic, its just copy pasta, I promise that it is easy
In the mainpage.XAML file: StackPanel x:Name=”mms” MouseLeftButtonUp=”mms_click” The StackPanel contains 4 elements, a picture and three text boxes, so when i click on it with it starts an event which i called “mms_click”you can call it anything (e.g. awsomeclickbuttonlol), but remember it for the next step
this is how you do it, Step 1 – Find the object you want to click on. You find this object in the “Objects and Timeline”
Step 2 – Select the Item and click the “Event button”
Now, there are some options where you have to think logically for a moment.
1. Do I want to launch the browser as soon as I tap the box or do I want it to launch?
2. If you choose MouseLeftButtonDown it will start as soon as you put your finger on it, so if you scroll or just rest your finger accidentally it will launch
3. if you choose MouseLeftButtonUp you may rest your finger on the object and even scroll. it will only launch if you tap the object. this is my reccomended option
you find the event button here
Step 3 – Create touch tap event
Use your prefered name for the event, but remember you can only use this name once. This name will then execute only one designated action.
Now, dont panic because this will happen automatically after you enter a name.
the file mainpage.cs.xaml will open and display…. CODE… DO NOT PANIC – its only copy/paste from this aricle that is needed.
Step 4 – Copy/Pasta code
Now you see the green line, replace this line with the code supplied above and just change the url to what you want the target to be.
1. Save the Project
2. Click Project – Build
3. Click Project – Run
The emulator will open and once its open your app starts loading. Once loaded try clicking on the Object you just created a click event on.
You have to create an account for Marketplace in order to release your app. The price in Norway is 819NOK.
This process takes some time and require a credit card. Once completed the account validation takes some time aswell.
Start this before you code so there is no snag when you want to release your app
