    In this tutorial, Kirupa Chinnathambi will show you how to optimize the keyboard that appears for the type of information a user would be inputting instead.

    Windows Phone devices are pretty much entirely touch-based. While some device flavors may contain a hardware keyboard that you can use, the primary way for you to input text is by tapping on the virtual, on-screen keyboard. 

    There is nothing special you need to do to bring up this keyboard. Simply set focus on a TextBox element that is used to receive text input, and your on-screen keyboard will automatically appear.

    By using Silverlight 4, Beau Brownlee has created his own TextBox with a watermark in it.

    In this short post Cheryl Simmons explains how to change the watermark text in a DatePicker control.

    Unfortunately, changing the watermark text is not as easy to do as you might think.

    The DatePicker control has a template part of type DatePickerTextBox that exposes a Watermark property. You'll see this part declared in the class overview topic of the DatePicker control.

    SilverLaw discusses a TextBox style where the text you type in looks like stamped leather.

    This TextBox Style is the result of playing around with DropShadow effects on a TextBlock nested in a Border. I ended up in building a TextBox templated style.If you cannot imagine how this style looks like just take a look and be astonished.
