    In this post I want to talk about themes. Themes allow you to change the colors, fonts and styles of all the visual elements in the user interface. Now that our Address Book application is complete, we’re almost ready to get this in front of real users. But before we do, it would be really nice to apply a different look-and-feel to our application in order to make it stand out above the rest. Visual Studio LightSwitch comes with only one theme out of the box, but you can download more. In fact, there are all kinds of extensions you can download to enhance what LightSwitch can do out of the box, not just themes.

    There are times when I want to preview file content in Windows Explorer. The Preview pane in Explorer makes this a simple task.

    This is a continuation of my last post Entity Framework & Windows Phone: Part 1 where we walked through the steps to create a simple data model using Entity Framework. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this or to simply catch up, I suggest you take a look.

    When we left off, we had created a simple data model that has three entities. We are going to jump ahead and use a more extensive data model that looks like this:

    As you may know, Microsoft announced Expression Studio 4 a week ago. The problem is that it doesn't support Windows Phone 7 out of the box. It's expected that the tools will be available soon.

    This initial release did not support Windows Phone 7, which at the time seemed odd choice given the emphasis placed on its Silverlight based user interface. 

    At Internet Week Microsoft revealed that Windows Phone 7 support was in fact coming soon.

    The full story can be found here.

    In his Tweening Equations for Silverlight post, Adam Kinney demonstrates how to make dynamic animations based on maths equations. Adam also endeavored to add links to the used external libraries and other relatet to the topic places.

    Tim Heuer announcing that Silverlight Streaming is updated to Beta 2. Tim also reported that Joel Neubeck submitted their Silverlight 2 - Video player as an opens source project hosted at CodePlex.

    If you need to obtain browser screen information like client width and height, you might find Jeff Wilcox post very useful. He provides static class that abstracts out the Firefox/Safari and Internet Explorer property differences.

    Where is the WatermarkedTextBox in Beta 2? Find the answer in Kathy Kam post here. She also gives a link to the WatermarkedTextBox source code with unit test, that you can use for now.

    Want to play some games - check the Vector Space: Zero Silverlight game. Daniel "Dan Dan" Gimenez did an amazing job on this game with parallax background scrolling, retro vector graphics, background music, sound effects and high scores.

    Talking about cool stuff check out the Silverlight soft-body physics demo based on Walaber's JelloPhysics library. Click here and enjoy!

    I’m starting a new project at work today to deliver MVVM guidance for the Windows Phone 7. This is going to be similar to the In the Box MVVM Training I did in Dec 2010.

    One tool I’ll be using is the new Windows Phone Marketplace Test Kit.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterPeter Qian has prepared some general guidelines on making your serialization experience better.

    With the release of Windows Phone 7, developers using WCF Data Service Client often find themselves needing to preserve the state their data context is in, and be able to continue from a previously saved state. This is called “Tombstoning” an app – the process which the phone framework notifies the app for shutting down, and later on coming back online. As a result we have been looking at designing a set of APIs to make saving and restore the client state an easy process. The already released CTP contains a “preview” to what we think the API should look like. Since then we’ve had a number of iterations on the design while incorporating feedbacks from the community.

    This post is a “missing part” of Alex Golesh's series about new features in Windows Phone Mango.

    Source: Alex Golesh's Blog

    New and very important feature of Windows Phone “Mango” Developer Tools is the profiler. The profiler enables the developers of Silverlight applications (currently only Silverlight scenarios are supported) to sense important heartbeats of the application and collect information about application behavior at runtime.
