WindowsPhone 8.1: Now UniversalWrapPanel is an alternative for WrapPanel(C#-XAML)


Still i am really addicted for 'WrapPanel'.Because WrapPanel is great for laying out things in a vertical or horizontal orientation until you reach the edge of the container and then moving on to the next column or row.But unfortunately i found 'WrapPanal' is no longer supported by windows store apps(i.e Universal Apps).Yestereday i found 'UniversalWrapPanel' is an alternative for 'WrapPanel'  layout .And i am heartly says very thanks to @gregstoll for making UniversalWrapPanel.However in this post i am going to explain about UniversalWrapPanel.

WindowsPhone: Drag and Drop the control within parent layout, beginners tutorials (C#-Xaml)


Some times we may need to drag and drop the specific control around the screen.So it may chance to control will be not visible if drag & drop meets out of screen boundaries.However we can easily resolve this issue using "built-in Windows Phone behaviors" (In our sample we are using 'Motion behaviors' ,i.e MouseDragElementBehavior).

WindowsPhone: Write Text on Image (C#-XAML)


Recently one of my blog follower was requested for a sample as 'he want to write text on image with MouseMove event'.For this question my previous article is enough but not efficient.Because there i was set text on image at static (x,y) co-ordinates with help of WriteableBitmap. In this sample we need to write text on dynamic (x,y) co-ordinates and so i thought 'WriteableBitmapEx' library is best match for this requirement.Because this library adds more extensions to WriteableBitmap,there by we can do direct manipulation of a bitmap and could be used to generate fast procedural images by drawing directly to a bitmap.

WindowsPhone : Making nice custom loader/rotator with related text (C#-XAML)


I already posted this kind of article here.And it is very nice example for making custom loader.However we need to provide some kind of progress/loaders until user data is loaded.And it is good practices user should knowing about his data is still loading from web.In previous article i introduce loader without related text.But now I thought It's better to showing related text with loader,So user can get an idea about for which date he is waiting so far..
