    While ListBox and ComboBox continue to work in Windows 8, their use is discouraged. They are not designed well for touch input and there are new and more powerful controls in WinRT that you can use instead; specifically the ListView and the GridView.

    ListView and GridView both derive from ListViewBase, and neither adds any properties, methods or events; thus they are nearly identical. The key difference is that ListView is typically used for vertical scrolling, while GridView makes a grid that is typically scrolled horizontally.

    If you’ve held off trying Visual Studio 11 Beta because your .NET 4 or Silverlight 5 app uses the Async CTP, your wait is over!

    Today we’ve published the Async Targeting Pack for Visual Studio 11, a NuGet package that lets your Visual Studio 11 projects target .NET 4 and Silverlight 5 while taking advantage of VB11's new Await keyword.

    We’re releasing a preview version of the client libraries for Windows 8 Metro-Style applications to give our users the ability to create applications that work on Windows 8. This client library will work with servers that comply with the OData v1-v3 protocols. In the blog post below we will describe a sample application we built and is available for download using this client library.

    It often happens that i have to show some visual feedback based on enum values of the ViewModel (MVVM). One usual approach is to use icons (ex. state of a network connection: checking, connected, broken).
    I like to keep ViewModel as free as possibile from View specific functionality so i created to IValueConverter for this purpose.

    I you remember my blogpost from a very long time ago, I wrote about using SQL CE with Windows Phone (you can find it here). SQL CE can be queried with LINQ to SQL, making it interesting for storing relational data. Recently I came in contact with the Sterling-database (check it here), an Object-database which can be used in .NET, Silverlight and Windows Phone ! You can add “SterlingPhone” to your project by using NuGet. Just like SQL CE I can use Sterling for storing data in Isolated Storage.

    If you want to know the current screen resolution and the pixels per inch (PPI) scale that your app is having to deal with on any device, use ResolutionScale.

    As I do some app development for Windows 8 I wanted to share my thoughts around localization and what it really means to me to provide a ‘world-ready’ application. The three areas of focus are 1) how the platforms support a localized app, 2) what technical tools you have to automate localization 3) getting culture-correct localization and 4) testing your localized app.

    I’ve seen a couple of interesting comps of metro apps that have a ribbon, they actually look decent especially if your building a business productivity app.

    I wanted to prototype a metro app with a ribbon to see what it would feel like. First is to create a simple ribbon, in future posts I’ll embellish this ribbon with rich touch/sensor driven experiences.

    With Windows 8 Metro style apps, you can now also build XAML controls not only with C# and VB.NET but also with C++. If you are a .NET developer you will probably wonder why you would do that – and granted there might be several reasons you wouldn’t. However there is a few nice things about C++ that .NET libraries doesn’t give you:

    1. You can use existing C++ libraries and link them directly in. This will allow you to re-use an enormous amount of code already out there.

    2. DirectX is a first-class citizen in C++ 11, and officially the only way to use DirectX in XAML (although there are ways to access this from C#).
