Hamishwillee - I'm not sure this approach really works

The point of showing how to do the same thing in Qt and Windows phone is to help people migrate. If you have them in separate articles then this isn't really an article on porting any more.

Even if they are in the same article, we need a proper comparison still. By proper comparison, I don't mean just showing code examples as most of these do (although that is part of the story). What really helps people is understanding the fundamental differences and similarities between APIs. What is a Gesture on Qt vs WP? Is it handled as a callback or some other mechanism? Are there any limits to what the gesture can be applied to? Can we apply it to any element. Is it a child of the element its applied to or a sibling. If you can capture this sort of stuff it helps people who already understand one framework understand the logic of the other.

As it is now, I think we've be better simply making it about WP. Then we link to the Qt article in SeeAlso. Lastly, we have one big article which shows the mapping between our Qt and WP articles that show how to do the same thing.

What do you think?

Somnathbanik - My approach

HI Hamish, Thank you for pointing this out. Actually I was bit confuse with this, I was ready with the Qt code to be put in this article , but found a similar article is already present, so though might be a duplicate one. So didn't add any Qt code and just refer to the existing Qt article. But I will work on these points in near future.
