Continually looking for the yellow brick road so I can catch me a wizard....

Windows Phone 7 Wheel Control

Update: The initial source and concept for this control was made available courtesy of FairFax as part of their investment into building applications for the Windows Phone platform.

If you’ve taken a look at either the hacked emulator build or a real Windows Phone 7 device you’ll notice that there are cases, such as selecting date or time, where they use a wheel-like control. It’s not the same as the iphone version which looks very 3d'ish. Instead they’ve gone for a very flat style in keeping with the rest of the device (as an aside if you’ve been wondering what “digitally authentic” means it essentially means don’t pretend that the screen is 3d. It’s not, so use 2d flat color buttons – check out the rest of the metro UI if you don’t believe me).

Yesterday I got a little side tracked and ended up re-skinning the ListBox to behave in a similar way to the wheel.


I’ve attached the source project which includes this sample application to show you how to use it. Feel free to consume and suggest improvements!

    Interesting the way choose by Microsoft to have the control with a simple wheel. I think it's the best option available to have good results.

    I enjoy you because of your whole efforts on this web site. Kim really loves engaging in investigation and it is easy to see why. I hear all of the dynamic tactic you convey sensible steps on the blog and even welcome response from some others on the idea then our own simple princess is really becoming educated so much. Have fun with the rest of the year. You are always conducting a pretty cool job.

    Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I'd like to write like this also - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

    This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want...HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're working with? I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

    Even you will find many running for years, when you begin your barefoot managing teaching the very first thing you should know is that you should cut way back on your normal routine, and get started as though you were just simply getting started working.
