Yan -

Hi. I 've corrected your article for wiki style and adapt it to a "How To" style article (basically a standard format used for some articles on the wiki). Can you please check and confirm I didn't make any mistakes during this process.

Maybe you could had a source code and a References chapter?

You can find "how to" example here :

Thank you for your article. I think users will find it useful.

I have further reviewed this and subedited for English and wiki style. Please check out the change log to see the changes I made. Specifically: "spelling of connection". Use of "Icode" for inline code and "code csharp" tag for blocks. Added more categories.

The main changes are to improve the wording and structure. As a rule it is better to be very precise about what problem you are trying to solve, and how you solved it. I liked that you acknowledged Olivier , but I moved that to the acknowledgements section because it is not core to the article. Similarly your apps are not core to what you are trying to show, so I've moved them down to the summary.

YOu may be wondering where all the code went? Well there is not much point duplicating the instructions already documented in the devcenter, so where possible don't show this code, just provide a high level overview and point to it. In this case I showed the key point - static class accessed using fully scoped App member, then linked to the more detailed example. Arguably keeping the code fragment might have been useful, but only if you were exhaustive in its explanation.

Hope that makes sense?
