How to open Internet Explorer by code in a Metro style application

Recently I've worked on a Windows 8 application to promote my blog: people can use it to read my posts within the application and to be notified (using both toast and tile notifications) every time a new post is published. The application uses a web view to display the detail of a post: the problem came when I had to manage the snapped view, since there isn't enough space on screen to display a web view.

During the pre certification lab that I've attended in Microsoft Italy the trainer gave me a good tip: in case the application is snapped, the post detail should be opened using Internet Explorer and not inside the application. In fact, in this scenario, Internet Explorer will open in filled mode and the user will be able to read the post without any difficulty.

Visual Studio 2012 Metro Styles for WPF

Although there are still serious discussions about whether the "Metro" design concept from Microsoft is good or not, WPF developers, who follow the trend, may now write their styles keeping the concept in mind. But despite the fact that many people think about the Tile Wall of Windows 8, when they hear the word "Metro", the concept itself actually means much more than that. The main idea is to keep things simple. No more gradients, no more colorful, blinking, glassy, flashing surfaces. One of the applications demonstrating this concept best is, no doubt, the new Visual Studio 2012. This article will present some Visual Studio like WPF styles.

Exploring Win8 Metro: The RichEditBox & FilePickers

Win8 provides a number of controls in the XAML toolkit that are easy to use RichEdit-File Pickerand that provide a great deal of flexibility and power. I'll be writing about some of these controls now and then, starting with some simple and easy to use controls that do a lot of work for you.

The RichEdit box allows the user to open and view and edit a Rich Text document. Rich Text refers to all the text attributes you associate with a word processor but not with a text editor (e.g., bold, color, etc.). The RichEditBox control handles all the work of understanding and presenting the rich text.

You are the controller – a step in to WP7 -> Win8 networking

I couldn't resist, I should be working on my Windows 8 Port of Flipped (which seems to be going swimmingly) and finishing of some other projects but glamour got the better of me as I rolled out of the covers and here we are.

One of my age old dreams with game development (even prior to XNA) was to be able to pick up my mobile device and use it as an alternate display or additional controller, at the time it was my trusty Windows Mobile PPC, times have evolved but my vision is still fresh.

Positioning Popup Menus in Windows 8 Metro

Often when building Windows 8 apps you'll want to provide a menu of options from the app bar, this may be a list of different ways to sort or filter the data. For these simple menus WinRT provides the PopupMenu control (for more complicated popup user interfaces I recommend the Flyout control from the Callisto library), these menus are very easy to create by creating UI Commands and appending them to the menus Commands collection.

Seeding your Metro style app with a SQLite database

It looks like people are really glad about being able to use SQLite within their Metro style apps. I had written two previous posts (Using SQLite in your Metro style app and HOWTO: Build and include SQLite) about this topic. I'm pleased to report that since those posts the SQLite team released a build (3.7.13 as of the datestamp on this post) which also provides the binary (32- and 64-bit versions) pre-compiled for you for inclusion in your Metro style app. You can get them from the SQLite download page.

I've received a few comments/questions that I thought I might clarify in my own opinion (and some facts) about using SQLite in your app.

Designing MetroTwit for Windows 8

We know it's still a bit rough around the edges and not feature complete but we hope it offers a teaser of what we think will be a compelling Twitter app for Windows 8 users.

Designing MetroTwit for Windows 8 was no walk in the park. We couldn't simply copy and paste our desktop application's source code; WPF code doesn't port to WinRT as well as you may have heard. But regardless, that code wasn't designed for touch. A tough challenge to say the least.

Working With Live Tiles in Windows 8 Metro App-Part 2

In my previous article, I explained the basics about tile as well as showed you how to send tile notifications step by step. In this article, I will show you another demo with another XML template, in which the notification will include an image along with the text. Also in this article, I will tell you how to clear the notifications.

First of all we need to have a new image(150*150) which will be used as a tile notification.You can get the image here. Now open the same project which we created earlier for the first part. Comment out all the codes that are there in the click event of the button created. Insert the image in the root folder of your project and then refresh the solution explorer. Do not forget to include that image in your project.This time we will use "TileSquarePeekImageAndText01" template for tile notification.

Image manipulation in Windows 8 metro app

@BartLannoeye ( his blog ) and I did a session on Building the Windows 8 Community app, yesterday at Community Day 2012, this as members of the WiPhug user group.

During this session I presented some technical items on how to make your Windows 8 app more attractive… Because of the fact that we currently only shared the slide deck, I'll be putting up some small blog posts with code references so you can use these inside your own app as well!
