Build Your First Windows Phone 7 Silverlight Application – Part 2
In the last post Build Your First Windows Phone 7 Silverlight Application – Part 1 I show how to create new Windows Phone 7 Application project and we wrote some code to change Color Background.
In this post I’ll show how to work with Windows Phone 7 Emulator to test your application.
Run Windows Phone 7 Emulator
In Visual Studio 2010 you will notice that you have a combobox to select the desire Device, unless you have a Windows Phone 7 device you need to select “Windows Phone 7 Emulator”
The first time can take couple of seconds and you will see the Emulator loading, you only need to do this Once, after the emulator loaded for the first time there is not need to close him even for debugging.
If you press F5 you automatically get your application on the screen, if not you can use Home and Back button in the bottom of the emulator to get to the home page.
Now Color Application should be up, pick a color, grid and click “Change”.
