Migrating a Windows Phone 7 app to a Windows Store app using XAML

Porting a Microsoft Silverlight app for Windows Phone to a Windows Store app built for Windows using C++, C#, or Visual Basic is relatively easy to do, although it does present some challenges. Most of your knowledge and experience will transfer to the model for Windows Store apps using XAML, as will much of your XAML UI design.

How to disable the On-Screen Touch Keyboard in Windows 8

It's lovely, isn't it. It's the Windows 8 on-screen keyboard, except I don't need or want to see it. I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch and it already has a keyboard. I will never ever want to use the Windows 8 touch keyboard. Unfortunately there is no checkbox or "just turn it off" way to disable the keyboard with a supported option.

Creating touch-based rotation in Win8 XAML Store apps

This article illustrates two ways of using touch or mouse input to rotate a UI element in a XAML-based Windows 8 Store app. I'm sharing this code because I believe that the corresponding official MSDN sample is too complex. Don't get me wrong: the Windows 8 gestures sample looks nice and gives a complete overview of all gestures and their mouse equivalent. But it uses three entire classes to do something that you can literally do in three lines of code. In this article, I'll describe the guidelines-compliant way of rotating an element using a two-finger gesture, but I also provide a one-finger alternative. Since not everyone has a touch screen (yet), I also give you two ways for using the mouse to rotate an element. As usual, the article comes with a downloadable sample app. It just displays two round rotatable images.

Windows Blue should not mean the end of the desktop!

Tech journalists are talking about what Windows Blue will mean for the future of Windows. Actually, no matter what anyone suggests, only Microsoft really knows what it has planned for future versions of Windows. What really is important though is how changes in Windows will affect software developers, plus businesses, and why considering this may be far more important in the long run.

Tips for dual-booting Windows 8 on Mac

Years of supporting numerous commercial users provide hard-knock, real-life lessons valuable to understanding how businesses really operate. Years of technology consulting also reveal how business users truly equip and interact with computers versus how they might wish to believe they equip and interact with desktops and laptops. Over time, and by working directly with business users operating Macs, I've learned its best to keep computer configurations as absolutely simple as possible. While technology professionals typically have no trouble keeping numerous logins straight-such as is often required for logging in to local computers, cloud-based apps, Web consoles, email platforms, CRM tools, ERP programs, EMR software, terminal services sessions, accounting solutions and more-even that simple task can prove overly complex and burdensome to end users.

How I Built the Paint 4 Kids Windows Store App Using Only HTML5 and SVG

Paint 4 Kids is a Windows Store app specifically designed for kids. It's a simple app for coloring and drawing. You can read about its features directly on the Windows Store site, where you can also see some screen shots. For this article, you can simply think of an app that has several drawings that you can interact with. From a technical perspective, Paint 4 Kids is built entirely using standard Web technologies, like HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SVG. Consider an important aspect here: with Windows 8, we write an app using our Web skills and we develop for the Web platform using the underlying HTML5 support of the Internet Explorer 10 rendering engine. So, one immediate benefit is that we do not have to test and support all the different browser versions or use any polyfills to emulate the new API features in old browsers. We can use the best of the Web platform and also some specific Windows 8 APIs directly in JavaScript.

Introducing the RadGrid for Windows 8 HTML

Windows 8 comes with a ListView control that does a nice job of providing a customizable list of values.  But often in data intensive applications, what would really hit the spot is a true data grid. ListViews do not allow commonly used data tasks such as sorting, grouping, and filtering, just to name a few.  Fortunately, Telerik has provided on for both HTML and XAML.  In this post, I am going to change the Event List home page for Conference Buddy  from a ListView to a Telerik RadGrid in just a few easy steps.

Ensuring your Windows 8 Game Passes Certification

PEGI and game age rating should be of interest to anyone who is distributing creating games that they have made. If you are developing games and uploading them to any store for people to play then you should know what content fits into what rating category, and I hope the following information will give you some further details and confirmation to ensure your game passes certification for the Windows 8 store.

Windows 8 - Conference Buddy: Pie Chart of statistics

One of the pieces of information that we're gathering in Conference Buddy is whether or not the contact (that's you) is interested in entering our raffle for the current conference. We'd like to display that information in a pie chart. There are a number of ways of attacking this problem. We could work directly with the Contact object but that is pretty big. Another approach is to create a Raffle class that will carry the information of how many yes's and how many no's we've received. This class will have two properties: name (for yes or no) and count (for how many).

Modern (“Metro”) Style Icons for WP and Win8

When building a Windows Phone or Windows Store app, one of the key things you might need are icons for your application bars (or other buttons); there are some good places to get different sets of icons from, including Syncfusion's Metro Studio, but there is one place I like to get my icons from for both types of projects. The Solution I've found the place to get a huge selection of different icons is from modernuiicons.com, a website run by Austin Andrews (@templarian), which, at time of writing this, has nearly 1000 icons that can be used. Now if the choice of icons alone isn't enough to sway you, then how about this: when you download the icon pack, you not only get light and dark png versions of each icon, you also get a .design (Expression Design) file and a .xaml file of the same icons. Where might this be useful?

Windows 8 Theme Transitions

Much of the animation that you want in your application is already built in. Pages and objects make their transitions smoothly. At times, however, adding a bit more animation can make the difference between a "fast and fluid" application and one that looks less professional. Adding animation can be tricky however; and often takes the subtle skills of a UI designer. Windows 8, provides a set of "Theme Transitions and Animations" that greatly simplify adding animation to your application while ensuring a very high level of professional design – that is, they've worked out all the details for you and all you have to do is add a couple lines of XAML to make it "go."

Building Apps Across Windows 8 Platforms

Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 are finally here. In this article, I'll look at key similarities and differences between developing applications for these two new platforms. I'll start by taking a look at what it means to build for a Windows device. With the rapid adoption of touch-based computing, there's a need for traditional forms-based interfaces to evolve, making them more touch-friendly. Don't Start Me Up One such transition is the rather dramatic departure from a Start button, arriving at an entire Start screen. Those already familiar with Windows Phone will recognize the Live Tile concept and immediately feel at home. Live Tiles are not simply application shortcuts; they're about displaying a snapshot or status of each application, or part of an application.

Mobile Services Custom Parameters in Windows Store apps

Well, it's now 2013, and I spent some time over the holidays messing around with using custom parameters in my mobile service… Windows Azure Mobile Services makes it rather easy to both read data from and modify data in a mobile service by using HTTP requests to the CRUD operations: POST, GET, PATCH. and DELETE. GET requests use an OData-style query URI to select data, and POST is used to send a new JSON object to be inserted. Pretty simple stuff really, and the client libraries make it very easy to do in your apps.

Playing with Windows Store apps apps

The past months I've been working on creating new, exciting Windows Store apps, using the Windows Library for Javascript, WinJS. Fortunately, since most of my work is web-related, not to mention all the node.js projects I've been involved in (thanks @woloski!) the adaptation wasn't so hard. But leaving the code aside, one of the most exciting challenges about Windows 8 apps is the UI/UX (after all, we're creating touch-interactive applications). Furthermore, they have its own way of organizing and displaying the content. So you should be very meticulous on topics like what and how (much) to show (there are some useful guidelines about this on msdn, like this one).

Shortcut Key Handling in Windows Store Apps

I wanted to create a simple ALT+S shortcut in my app to jump to a TextBox in my Windows Store App (no this is not the Win+Q search charm shortcut). However, this is not that obvious to get working app-wide, so I'll share it here: The obvious way to do this is assign a KeyDown event to your page using the typical "this.KeyDown += MyKeyDownHandler", or override OnKeyDown. However this has one problem: If any control that has focus currently handles key down events (like TextBox), this event won't be raised due to how event bubbling works. However there is another way to create an event handler that overrides the bubbling: UIElement.AddHandler. In the 3rd parameter of that, you can specify that you want to be notified even if the event has been handled.
