Hamishwillee - Thanks!

Hi Nilay

Thanks for this article. Personally I'm always trying to find reference for these types of conversions so this is quite useful.

I've given it a basic edit. You'll note that I've removed the .NET category. As a rule we use Silverlight for .NET on the wiki. I know that they are subtly different, but in general the implementation of .NET we're talking about it silverlight, so if you want the article to be findable, suggest you use both.

In terms of "improvement", what really helps and article is to provide great links to other good resources on the topic. So could you please provide an API reference link to the DateTime object as it appears on Windows Phone?

regards

Hamish

Hamishwillee - Not quite

Hi Nilay

No :-)

What I mean is that if you want to work with DateTime and you see this article you are likely to then want to find out what else you can do with the class. However if you search on DateTime on google you'll get a million hits. It is helpful to provide link to the precise key classes you talk about.

So for example, in this case, I'd change from

to

Even better, add link to good doc on UNIX datetime too.

Does that make sense?

SB Dev -

The code is still working properly on Windows Phone 8. Meta Data was updated accordingly.

Hamishwillee - Thank you

Looking at this, not sure if it would be better in category "Base/System" or "Programming Idioms". Hmmm.
