Back to school I'm afraid. The big change is the UI, a lot of the old stuff has been deprecated in favour of fragments. To get the UI right you'll need to reference the android.support.v4.app[^] jars because 70% of users are still on 2.3.x and won't be able to use your app otherwise.
You also might want to take a look at the ActionBarSherlock[^] to get the complete new school look. A bit of work involved but the end result should look pretty cool and give you some future proofing.
I am trying to write video recorder app for Windows Phone 7. According to my phone tech spec camera can record video with resolution 1280x720. But in VideoCaptureDevice.SupportedFormats I have only one option 640x480. How to enforce highest resolution? Build in WP7 application "Camera" can record video in both resoulution.
CaptureSource cs = new CaptureSource();
VideoCaptureDevice videoDev = CaptureDeviceConfiguration.GetDefaultVideoCaptureDevice();
var listaVideoFormats = videoDev.SupportedFormats;
videoDev.DesiredFormat = listaVideoFormats; // I have only one element on the list
cs.VideoCaptureDevice = videoDev;
I am a C# ASP.NET developer. I am trying to develop for Windows Mobile. I have the following questions: Could someone suggest some ideas? I have been searching forums also.
1. O/S- Compact Edition/Windows 7-Comparisons
2. VS 2010 development in C# - Will it run both in Compact&Windows 7 O/S.
3. Silverlight/WPF Support - We need rich UI
4. Free Database – upto 1 GB storage – SQL Lite/SQL Express/SQL Compact Edition(Not so sure whether it is free)
5. Zigbee commuication
6. GPRS communication to connect to windows based systems through TCP/FTP
7. Download application from the server automatically and upgrade
3. Windows Phone 7 uses a cut-down version of Silverlight (with a extra few phone-specific controls).
6. You can use the same standard TCP/IP classes as on Windows (with a few restrictions).
7. Software deployment to a phone works through the Marketplace. This provides notifications about possible updates, but doesn't seem to allow auto-update.
8. The dev software comes with a simulator, but it doesn't beat testing the software on a real device.
You should be able to get more info from the Microsoft website.
