    Recently in one of my applications I used DatePicker control from Silverlight for Windows Phone 7 Toolkit.

    When launched the app and tried to change the date I “discovered” unpleasant surprise – the Done/Cancel icons in Application Bar were missed.

    In this blog post, David Anson explains how to localize a WP7 app that uses the Windows Phone Toolkit into different languages.

    While it might be convenient if everybody spoke the same language (or communicated via telepathy), that's not the world we live in. :) Therefore, building applications that can be easily translated to other languages is an important consideration. Fortunately, it's easy - and it's covered in the MSDN article How to: Build a Localized Application for Windows Phone. But what's not covered is how to localize the controls in the Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit. As you might expect, it's fairly similar, but I've had a few people ask about this explicitly and I decided to do a quick post on the topic.

    In this post, David Anson discusses the Date and Time picker for Windows Phone 7.

    As with the rest of the Phone Toolkit, our primary goal was to make it easy for developers to match the core Windows Phone 7 experience in their own applications. Toward that end, adding an instance of DatePicker or TimePicker to a page gives the same "small button expands to full-page date/time picker with infinite scrolly thingies" experience that's found in the core Settings, Calendar, and Alarms applications. But sometimes you want to do things a little differently, and maybe you've got a date/time picking interface in mind that's more relevant to your scenario...
