Windows Phone 8 Development Notes
As a WPF developer, I'm finding the jump to Windows Phone 8 development not as seamless as I had first hoped, here are some of the small differences that have bitten me so far (certainly more to come, I'll be adding to this list and have a few blog posts on the way with some more detail)
- Windows Phone OS doesn't support setting a unit qualifier on the FontSize property and will throw an Exception at run-time if you try (WPF vs Phone).
- Windows Phone doesn't support IMultiBindingConverter, I'll be blogging about a workaround soon.
- There are no style triggers in Windows Phone OS, I wanted to change the appearance of a ListBoxItem based on its IsSelected property and had to resort to using VisualStates instead, more to follow.
