    When you are designing new apps, you will want to make sure they can be viewed across various orientations and states. For a detailed discussion about design considerations for view states, orientations, and resolutions in Windows 8 be sure to read Scaling to different screens on the Building Windows 8 blog.

    So that you don't need to submit your application to get it's id and resubmit it.
    For my future WP7 application Warnygo, I needed to get its id for several reasons. For example, use it with the ShareLinkTask or send it to my services.
    As you may know, you can find your application id in the WMAppManifest.xml. It's the ProductID attribute in the App node.

    When you first create your application with Visual Studio, you get a random one. But you will get a new one through the marketplace submission process. So how to get your application id in your application once submitted?

    I’ve been bitten by this and have seen others run into it enough times that I thought I’d blog about it. Let’s say you’re creating a new Console, WPF, or Windows Forms application in .NET 4. You’re using Visual Studio 2010, and everything is going great until you get to the part where you wanted to make an HTTP request. You know you can do this, you’ve done it before, heck, you might even be copying code straight out of MSDN that does what you need. But it doesn’t compile.

    When you start writing Metro style apps you’ll quickly come across contracts, a new and powerful concept in Windows 8. Metro style apps use contracts to declare interactions they support with other apps and with Windows. You’ve probably already heard about some of them: search, share, etc. Using contracts, apps become better by working with the system or with each other when users install more apps that implement contracts. In this post I’ll walk you through activation, one of the main concepts to think about as you add contracts to your apps.

    Last week I built a sample multilingual app in WPF using MVVM for a proof of concept. This was the first time I've built a desktop app which supported different languages at runtime. Previously I've worked on multilingual websites and desktop apps but not ones that support changing the language of the UI dynamically via a UI control like a menu item.

    The app was pretty simple, a single input field representing a number where the value has to be within a fixed range (-100 to 100). If the input failed the validation an error message would be displayed.

    A lot of folks have asked me for information on how to publish a LightSwitch application to IIS6. With the help of a couple team members we finally got the steps written down. This is a follow up to the detailed IIS7 on Windows Server 2008 deployment guide which you should familiarize yourself with first. There is a lot more information there on how deployment actually works:

    Deployment Guide: How to Configure a Web Server to Host LightSwitch Applications

    In this post I’m just going to show you the basic steps necessary to configure a Windows 2003 Server with IIS6 installed. I’ll also show you the MSDeploy commands you need to automate a deployment package created with Visual Studio LightSwitch.

    Push notifications have been available on mobile devices for the past few years, but are just recently making their way to the desktop. At last year's BUILD conference, Microsoft announced its push notification strategy for Windows 8, which uses the Windows Push Notification Service (WNS).WNS is very similar to the Microsoft Push Notification Service (MPNS) used by Windows Phone 7 applications. I'll first go over the various types of push notifications available to developers in the current Windows 8 Consumer Preview, and then how to implement each of them.

    XNA is very different from winforms applications or Silverlight apps in that it is not eventdriven but rather uses the concept of a GameLoop where you update and redraw the whole surface for each frame. On Windows Phone by default you draw 30 frames per second, so 30 times per second you update the locations of the objects, check for user input and redraw the screen.

    Back in December, I wrote about dynamically generating live tiles on the phone from a xaml template. I released first live tiles application Terminator which shows sunrise and sunset around the world using NASA blue marble imagery. Some of our customers asked for sunrise and sunset times, and where better than on a live tile.

    However, occasionally the tile would not update correctly using code based on that I showed back in December.

    The symptoms were odd. The layout was all over the place, and as I started changing things, I found that things were about to get even more peculiar.

    It’s almost 4 in the morning, and as with all great ideas, this one came to me while I was working on a completely different project. I was thinking that it is a shame that I cannot attach files to an email via EmailComposeTask – and indeed, I am not the only one thinking about this [...]
