Talk:How to create a simple image carousel using basic Windows Phone controls
Hamishwillee - Another clever approach
Yes, another good approach to the text and images problem :-) I've subedited for wiki style and a little for English - please check it's still OK. I also added a section linking to your other "related" approaches to this problem.
The only thing I didn't understand is the paragraphs:
"But here comes the tricky part; the dirty reference in the title! What we want to do, is change the HorizontalOffset of the ScrollViewer to navigate through the carousel, but this can't be done directly from within a StoryBoard! So we need to implement a work around...
We can, however, tweak a property on the page from within a StoryBoard and the only thing we will be doing, is passing this through to the HorizontalOffset of the ScrollViewer. This property on the page will be a DependencyProperty."
What is the dirty reference? Why can't this be done directly from within a storyboard?
Other than that, would consider changing the name. Yes it is quick and dirty, but I think its a valid approach for a simple app. How about "How to create a simple image carousel using basic Windows Phone controls"?
Thank you again!

To be honest about the scrollviewer problem, I can't explain it better than Dan did here: http://developer.nokia.com/Blogs/Community/2013/04/02/smooth-scrolling-content-on-windows-phone/ Maybe we should add this link in the wiki?But ok, mayby loosing the dirty reference would make the title a bit better :)

Hamishwillee - the title is definitely improved :-)
Well, the "dirty reference" text got removed somewhere in the editing, and the title is definitely better.
How about we paraphrase Dan's words. Instead of "But here comes the tricky part ..." do What we would ideally like to do is navigate through the carousel by changing the HorizontalOffset of the ScrollViewer using a StoryBoard with an Animation. Unfortunately this can't be done because HorizontalOffset is a read-only property; it cannot be set, and therefore cannot be used for animation. So we need to implement a work around"

Hamishwillee - Possibly :-)Or it could be because its a nicely themed and well promoted article. In either case, a good result.
