Talk:Stop Watch using Windows Phone
Hamishwillee - I've subeditedI've subedited and updated this - adding links to the DispatcherTimer. One question, why this type of timer, and not one of the others?

Mihasi - Metadata update neededI've made some changes to the code, so the metadata should be updated. Not sure how to do this, new to Windows Phone and this wiki.

Hamishwillee - @Mihasi - thank you
Welcome to the wiki. Your profile is not public so can't find anything about you - are you community or Nokia internal?
Thanks for the change to code - they look good.
In terms of the metadata the usage is documented in Template:ArticleMetaData. In general what we're trying to do with most of the metadata is indicate the likely "relevance" of the content so that down the track people can tell if its likely still to be useful and accurate over time - so we show review timestamps for articles if they are still relevant after a year or so. We add update stamps if we make big changes (effectively we're "renewing" the creation date). We add devices and platforms that the article has been tested on as they come along. Upshot is that if someone sees an article with new SDKs, devices and stamps they know its relevant. If its older ones, they know that its not as "trustable".
In this case
- if you tried this out on a real device you'd enter that device under "devices".
- This is a year old, so it would help to show that this is still useful - so you'd update the review
You wouldn't update SDK or platform information, because that is still current.
Hope that makes sense.
Thanks again for this - every little bit helps.
