Hamishwillee - SB Dev - excellent update thank you

Hi Oliver

Thanks for the update - even better than I'd envisaged.

I have given this a subedit/review. Aside from English improvements, I've moved the Background services section first, because this is what people should use if they can. It is now a really concise summary and index, and I'm pleased to have this on the wiki.

Much appreciated

Ubaldo.Felloni - Thank you


    thanks for this very useful article.

I added a case to deactivate the application.

One suggestion: - An application in dormant state can be reactivated without passing through the tombstoned state.

In the image that illustrates the lifecycle of a Windows Phone application, there is no the directly passage.

Best Regards

SB Dev -

You're right that was an error in the image. Unfortunately the original was done by someone else so I had to redo the image to incorporate the correction. I'm sure someone can come up with a graph that looks a little better but at least now it's correct.

Thanks for the addition of the chooser-use case.

Vivek solanki -


This is nice article.thanks for sharing detail.

I have one question regarding it.I want to set my splash image when application go into dormant state such that when user long press back button and list of application shown in background, i can see application splash image not application current page.

Steps : 1. Start application 2. Press Start Button 3. Application goes in background (while application goes in Dormant state i can set splash image in root frame such that i can see application splash image not current page info while list of background application shown)

4. Long Press back button (which shows list application running background)
