    I was having a discussion with one of my clients about changing the appearance of the WPF DataGrid Cell, when a certain condition is met. His requirement was that a WPF application contains a DataGrid which displays Sales data. When a user wants to focus on a specific Quarter sales for a specific product, then the Cell containing the Sales data should be highlighted. Now this is a typical requirement where you can easily apply effects on the DataGrid cell using Property Triggers. In WPF, we can target Styles to a specific UI element using which the UI can be dynamically manipulated.

    Last year Jon Galloway and I launched the Full Stack experiment,in which we video-documented the creation of a nontrivial application.

    Today we begin the second phase of this experiment, building a new application that will have implementations or related applications on the following platforms:

    • Windows phone 7.5
    • ASP.net MVC
    • HTML 5/JavaScript
    • Windows 8

    The Windows Phone Browser team has a goal of delivering the best web browsing experience on a smartphone. This goal has many components within our team: from the UI of the browser, compatibility with a wide array of website layouts, and of course buttery-smooth rendering performance. However, even if we execute flawlessly on our end, we are missing a crucial piece - delivering a great web experience is fundamentally a partnership between our team and web developers. Achieving this goal means working together to ensure that your content and services are delightful for users to consume on Windows Phone.

    One issue I’ve encountered while building Metro-style WinRT apps on Windows 8 is the need to have my app interact with a WCF service running on the same machine.

    This is obviously a common scenario for any n-tier or SOA app development. The challenge we face is that WinRT apps are blocked from calling back to localhost (

    I’m using the excellent REST library RestSharp for all my REST and OAuth calls. I’m also using the amazing data caching framework AgFx written by Shawn Burke which handles caching your web requests, something that goes from a nice to have to critical when writing high performance Windows Phone apps.

    Out of the box AgFx handles all your requests so it can do it’s caching thing, getting in the front of each request to determine if it should give you a cached version instead of hitting the web, if it should invalidate the cache, if it should give you a cached version and then make a live request, etc. [...]

    Want to create a game for Windows 8? And publish it to the new Windows Store?

    Many of the apps that are submitted to the Windows Store are failing certification because they didn’t know that a Privacy Policy was needed, or that the game/app had to implement a snap view and so on. This kit will help you with the most important things.

    I have created a simple HTML5 Game starter kit that will help you set up a new Windows 8 game project in short time.

    In part 2 of his series, Shawn Burke is taking the MoveMe application from the iPhone SDK and is implementing it on Windows Phone 7 Series.

    The MoveMe app is the main end-to-end app writing example in the iPhone SDK, called Creating an iPhone Application.  This application demonstrates a few concepts, including handling touch input, how to do animations, and how to do some basic transforms.

    Jeff Handley reworks his ValidationException post after considering the advice of one of his readers.

    Awhile back, I blogged about how Silverlight uses Validation Exceptions, which can cause the debugger to break.  I showed how to prevent that from happening, but the solution was less than ideal.
