Talk:How to detect the screen resolution on Windows Phone
Hamishwillee - Thanks for contributing your blog!
Thanks for contributing your blog - useful information!
I have subedited the blog for wiki style and changed 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.
Please note the wiki styles - I've used Icode to mark up inline code (normally we use an external link to api reference for the first time we mention an API item, and Icode subsequently). For the code block I've specified syntax markup. For the image I've used a "thumb" rather than a gallery - allows you to have that nice frame and control the size better. There is a lot more information in the Help:Contents, and in particular see the Help:Wiki Article Review Checklist
Can you confirm what real devices this has been tested on? I will put the information in the Article Meta Data up the top.
Did you reference any other articles before you wrote this blog. I've added your blog and some other useful links to the References section, but if you got any ideas on this from elsewhere it is useful to put those references in too.
Are there any assemblies that need to be imported? These should be specified - e.g. "Using ..." in the code. If this needs to be conditional, please add. Are there any security capabilities required?
In terms of specific improvements this is a great article about using reflection to get the screen resolution. I think that it would be great to have a code fragment below the one above which shows how you do this without reflection - there will be people who will ignore WP7 and so its worth showing them the "easier way". Can you do just a code fragment for that (no need to add to your example)
Thank you again, very helpful.

Hamishwillee - YOu would hope so!Thanks Thomas, though not vital to test since there is only one resolution in WP7 :-) Good for completeness though.

Influencer - YesRemember - there's a WP8 SDK function involved so it's good to know it works on the device.

Hamishwillee - Indeed :-)Thanks. Appreciate all your help providing advice to authors. I can provide a point of view with respect to the English and document structure, but only shallow depth on technical accuracy.
