Coding4Fun Windows Phone Toolkit for WP7 Devs

Clint Rutkas has released a new, open source WP7 toolkit on CodePlex. This is different from the Silverlight for Windows Phone 7  Toolkit and contains the following controls:

Controls:

  • About Prompt
  • Input Prompt
  • Progress Overlay
  • Round Button
  • Round Toggle Button
  • Memory Counter
  • TimeSpan Picker

Abstract Classes:

  • PopUp class for things like an Input Prompt that can be GPU accelerated unlike the built in Popup control.

Converters:

  • Boolean to Visibility
  • String To Visibility
  • Themed Image Converter
  • Inversed Theme Image Converter
  • Visibility to Boolean

Binding Helpers:

  • Textbox update
    Example: <TextBox Text=”{Binding FooBar, Mode=TwoWay}” local:TextBoxBinding.UpdateSourceOnChange=”True” />

Data Helpers:

  • PhoneHelper for getting data out of the WMAppManifest file
    Example:  PhoneHelper.GetAppAttribute(“Title”)

This will no doubt be a great time-saver for many developers, so many thanks to Clint for developing this project.
