Hamishwillee - Why not use Tombstoning helper for Windows Phone 7?

Hi Sébastien

Looks like a helpful library, but why not use the far more generic Tombstoning helper for Windows Phone 7?

I have also renamed to reflect this supplies a library, not instructions on how to implement things in code.

I have subedited the article to improve the readability and adherence to wiki style. In particular note that the introduction is now more clear - as I understand it the Windows Phone style guidelines reflect only how apps should behave when an app is tasked away from, not how they should behave if exited. In any case, the never version makes the difference between dormant and tombstoning clear.

In terms of wiki style, please link to API reference items the first time they are used, and subsequently use Icode template to mark them up as monotype "code" style. Also please quickly look at the final page to check the layout is OK - you will note I changed the bulleting because it wasn't rendering properly.

Thanks for taking the time to write this article!

regards

Hamish

ArchieCoder - Suggestions

Hello,

If I add more method helpers into my library, I'll definitively rename it to TombstoningHelper which make a lot of sense.

I'll take note about the API reference.

What do you mean by: "Icode template to mark them up as monotype "code" style"?

Thank you

Hamishwillee - @ArchieCoder - there is already a tombstoning helper

Hi ArchieCoder

If I add more method helpers into my library, I'll definitively rename it to TombstoningHelper which make a lot of sense.

No, my point was that there is already a TombStoning helper library in codeplex, which I've linked to above - so you would need your own name! This covers a lot more controls than yours, so I was wondering first why you rolled out the specific library (probably you did so before this existed) and second if you are aware of this helper, why use yours in preference?

I also changed the title of your article to "helper" because I wanted to make it clear that this article doesn't really describe the code for saving states, but instead provides code that you can use to do so.

What do you mean by: "Icode template to mark them up as monotype "code" style"?

It makes it more readable if you highlight inline code items (like class and function names) in the text. So for example when I refer to ListView it is better to mark it up as ListView - ie in monotype font. To do this I use the Icode template like this: {{Icode|ListView}}. Note also that the first time I mention an inline code item I'll tend to link it instead - e.g. ListView

Does that make sense?

Regards

Hamish
