This morning I found an interesting question on StackOverflow asking how to make the default Windows Phone slider control return discrete values (in this case an integer value rather than the default double).
There are several possible ways to go about this, but the one that leapt out was to create an attached property on the slider and bind to that.
The entire helper class for the property looks like this.
Syncfusion have released a series of e-books on various topics, including Windows Store Apps. You need to enter some registration information to be able to access them, but the content looks good at first glance – certainly good enough to make it worth registering.
If you’re testing an app that uses the Nokia Imaging SDK (or any other app that access your pictures library, for that matter) and you can’t see any content in your pictures library it might be the result of a bug in the emulator.
If you need to access the in-built images, you need to open the photos app at least once before you run your app. once you’ve done that, the content will become available to your app.
(Thanks to the guys at Nokia, this information has now been added into the documentation. I’m childishly pleased to have been able to help out in my own small way. )
