Programming Windows Phone 7: An Introduction to Touch - Low-Level Touch Handling in XNA
The multi-touch input device is referred to in XNA as a touch panel. You use methods in the static TouchPanel class to obtain this input. Although you can obtain gestures, let’s begin with the lower-level touch information.
Windows Phone 7: Responding to a Message
Most of the time, responding to an e-mail is fairly straightforward. Windows Phone gives you the same options you’re probably accustomed to on your PC. If you set up an Exchange account on your phone for work, you can respond to meeting requests and invitations in addition to e-mail.
Windows Phone 7: Checking for New Messages
By default, Windows Phone checks for new mail automatically. How often it checks depends on the account. The default for web accounts is every 30 minutes.
Windows Phone 7: Sorting and Searching Your Mail
The Mail app in Windows Phone 7 comes with powerful tools that make it easier to find and filter mail. For example, you can hide messages that aren’t important or that you’ve already read
Windows Phone 7: Customizing Your Contacts List
In Windows Phone 7, you have some control over how your contacts list looks. For example, you can change how you sort or display names. You can also filter out all but your most important Facebook friends by electing to show only people who already have a contact card on your phone.
Windows Phone 7: Working with the Me Card
The Me card in Windows Phone 7 shows all of your recent status updates, as well as messages and pictures posted to Windows Live or your Facebook Wall. The Me card is handy if you forget what you said or want to see if somebody responded to you with a comment.
Windows Phone 7: Posting to Facebook or Windows Live
If you’re a fan of social networks like Facebook or Windows Live, you’ll appreciate how easy it is on Windows Phone to keep up with your friends’ posts and status updates or respond to them.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Simple Clocks (part 2)
An XNA clock program doesn’t need a timer because a timer is effectively built into the normal game loop. However, the clock I want to code here won’t display milliseconds so the display only needs to be updated every second.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Simple Clocks (part 1)
The clock is yet another Silverlight program in this chapter that changes the Text property of a TextBlock dynamically during runtime. The new value shows up rather magically without any additional work
Windows Phone7: Pinning a Contact to Start
Any contact you connect with regularly is a good candidate for pinning to the Start screen. Pinning is the smartphone equivalent of speed dial: It lets you call or text that person with just two taps.
Windows Phone7: Adding a Picture or Ringtone to a Contact
Adding a picture to a contact card makes it easier (and more fun) to answer the phone. Windows Phone displays the picture whenever that person calls, so it’s instantly clear who’s on the line.
Windows Phone7: Deleting a Contact
When you delete a contact card, the information is removed from both your phone and the account the contact is associated with (except for Facebook contact cards, which can’t be edited or deleted directly.)
Programming Windows Phone 7: XNA Orientation
By default, XNA for Windows Phone is set up for a landscape orientation, perhaps to be compatible with other screens on which games are played. Both landscape orientations are supported, and the display will automatically flip around when you turn the phone from one landscape orientation to the other.
Programming Windows Phone 7: Orientation Events
For Silverlight programs that get text input, it’s crucial for the program to be aligned with the hardware keyboard (if one exists) and the location of that keyboard can’t be anticipated.
Windows Phone 7: Editing a Contact
If somebody in your contacts list changes jobs, moves to a new address, or adds a new cell phone number or e-mail address, you need to update his or her info on your phone. Here’s how to do it.
Windows Phone 7: Finding a Contact
If you know a lot of people and they’re all listed in your phone, flicking up and down your contacts list to find someone can grow tedious. But People offers two nifty tricks for giving your fingers a rest.
Windows Phone 7: Adding a Contact
Adding people to your contacts list is pretty straightforward. In Windows Phone 7 parlance, you create a new contact “card” with a person’s details. This card isn’t a static rundown like the Rolodex of old.
Windows Phone 7: Linking Contacts
Your coworker Joe is listed in your Outlook address book at work. He’s also one of your Facebook friends. What happens if you add your Outlook and Facebook accounts to your phone?
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Silverlight and Dynamic Layout (part 2)
The Margin property is defined by FrameworkElement; in real-life Silverlight programming, almost everything gets a non-zero Margin property to prevent the elements from being jammed up against each other.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Silverlight and Dynamic Layout (part 1)
This response to orientation really shows off dynamic layout in Silverlight. Everything has moved around and some elements have changed size. Silverlight originated in WPF and the desktop, so historically it was designed to react to changes in window sizes and aspect ratios.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : An XNA Program for the Phone (part 3)
In the Draw method you want to draw on the display. But that’s all you want to do. If you need to perform some calculations in preparation for drawing, you should do those in the Update method.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : An XNA Program for the Phone (part 2)
These three new fields simply indicate the text that the program will display, the font it will use to display it, and the position of the text on the screen. That position is specified in pixel coordinates relative to the upper-left corner of the display.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : An XNA Program for the Phone (part 1)
In fact, XNA doesn’t even have any built-in fonts. You might think that an XNA program running on the phone can make use of the same native fonts as Silverlight programs, but this is not so
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Points and Pixels
All dimensions in Silverlight are in units of pixels, and the FontSize is no exception. When you specify 36, you get a font that from the top of its ascenders to the bottom of its descenders measures approximately 36 pixels.
Windows Phone 7 : Changing Caller ID Settings
You might not want to show your phone number to every Tom, Dick, or Harry. Maybe just Tom and Harry. Windows Phone 7 gives you that option. When you hide your number from someone, all they see is “Private” when you call.
Windows Phone 7 : Forwarding Calls
You can set up your phone so that it automatically forwards calls you receive to another number. This can be handy if your battery is about to die and you want to send callers to a landline instead, or if you’re going to be away without your phone.
Windows Phone 7 : Checking Voicemail
If someone leaves you a voicemail, you’ll know because you’ll see the little upside-down eyeglasses icon in the lower-left corner of the lock screen. The icon also appears on the Phone tile on Star
Windows Phone 7 : Making Conference Calls
Windows Phone is also capable of the kind of advanced calling tricks once found only on fancy corporate office phones. Case in point: conference calling.
Programming Windows Phone 7 : Color Themes
From the Start screen of the phone or phone emulator, click or touch the right arrow at the upper right and navigate to the Settings page and then select Theme. A Windows Phone 7 theme consists of a Background and an Accent colo
Programming Windows Phone 7 : The Standard Silverlight Files
All Silverlight programs contain an App class that derives from Application; this class performs application-wide initialization, startup, and shutdown chores. You’ll notice this class is defined as a partial class, meaning that the project should probably include another C# file that contains additional members of the App class
