Chintandave er - Thanks and Sub-edited!

Hi, Thanks for this article.

I have sub-edited this article. Also I changed the article title. Also I have corrected contest template as it was for internal employee and I think you are not employee of Nokia or MS. Still let me know if I am wrong.

Have some suggestions for you. Please follow this suggestions and correct those in your articles.

  • Use Code template e.g. <code>your code</code>
  • In article, if there is any class/function used, You should apply {{Icode|ClassOrFunction}} template to it.
  • Give reference link to the API word if any.
  • If there is any page name (e.g. mainpage.xaml) make it bold.
  • If you have source code of demo app, you can upload it and link it here. For this article if you dont have then it OK.

You can access XNA framework in a WP8 project??

R2d2rigo - XNA in WP8

Yes you can, yan_, but only to some namespaces. You can't make full-XNA games for WP8.

Hamishwillee - Subedit/Review

Hi Rudy/All

I have given this a basic subedit for wiki style and added a "tip" with the above link on supported XNA namespaces.

Rudy, I like this article. It could be improved by providing references to the classes and guide on the standard message box, and by explaining what the standard box offers (buttons, text, icon) so it is clear what is the delta that your advanced approach offers. As it is now, you state that the new box is better but it isn't clear why. If it were me I'd have a "old" and "new" image next to each other.

It would also be excellent to have a downloadable app where we could try launching both the standard box and your one.

In terms of the competition, this looks like it isn't really a WP8 feature - correct? Which means that it isn't necessarily exactly what we wanted. It is however excellent material for the wiki (expecially with that example code)
