    Windows Store App : What you need to know

    • 1 Comments
    Upload

    Your app begins the certification process when you upload it to the Store. During the upload process, we check your app's packages for technical compliance with the Certification requirements for Windows apps. If your app passes these tests, you'll see a successful upload message under the upload control in the Packages page.

    If a package fails an upload test, you'll see an error message. See Resolving package upload errors for possible errors and their resolutions. Correct the error and upload the package again.

    Pre-processing

    After you upload the app's packages and you submit your app for certification, the packages are queued for the automated tests.

    Security tests

    The first test checks your app's packages for viruses and malware. If your app fails this test, see Malware scanning in Resolving certification errors.

    Technical compliance tests

    Technical compliance is tested by the Windows App Certification Kit. For info on how you can test your app with this kit before you submit it to the store, see How to test your app with the Windows App Certification Kit.

    Content compliance

    Content compliance is tested manually by a person. How long it takes the tester to complete this test depends on such factors as how complex your app is, how much visual content it has, and the tester's backlog of work.

    Tip  Describe any steps or procedures that can help make it easier to test your app in the Notes to testers page.

    Release

    At the time you specify, either on a specific date or as soon as possible, we send your signed app to the servers and its description appears in the Windows Store catalog.

    Note  It might take some time for your app's listing to appear in search results. This is normal. Also, you can't change a release date after you submit the app to the Windows Store, but you can cancel the release, update the release date, and re-submit.

    Signing and publishing

    After your app passes the certification testing, its packages are digitally signed to protect them against tampering after they have been released.

    Note  You don't have to sign your app's packages before you submit them to the Store. We'll sign them for you after they pass certification testing.

    Important  When this phase begins, you cannot cancel your submission.

    Certification report

    After the certification process completes, you get a certification report, whether your app passes certification and is listed in the Windows Store or not.

    If your app fails one of the certification tests, you will see this on the report. Resolving certification errors has more info on how to fix your app so you can submit it for certification again.

    Why I should use Expression Blend for HTML to design?

    • 0 Comments

    Because you simply cannot ignore it. It is just an amazing tool to have

    • This gives you WYSWYG
    • Takes care of the dynamically loaded controls with data while designing
    • Data bound WinJS controls are not visible in Visual Studio unlike ASP.NET
    • You can also view and design for different layouts like snapping etc.
    • Helps you check resolution while designing.
    • It supports live DOM
    • It also has interactive mode and you can navigate anywhere within the application

    Windows 8: How do you add src attribute to an img tag when image is a stream not a file

    • 0 Comments

    At runtime we may have file coming from sources like Web Cam. This is not a file at that point in time. It is just a stream. Now, if I am into a HTML WinJS app how can I add it?

    Let’s you have a file with “myFile”.

    //Make the temporary URL (HTML5)
    
    //This URL is valid only within the context
    
    var url = URL.createObjectURL(myFile);
    
    var img = document.createElement("img");
    
    //Then add the URL as src
    
    img.src = url;

    WinJS.xhr Issue while running next time

    • 4 Comments

    Windows 8 and WinJS.xhr goes hand in hand while developing application to consume web. I was trying out something like that. It used to work fine for the first run. But the second and consecutive runs it gives error as below.

    clip_image002

    Error message

    Exception is about to be caught by JavaScript library code at line 2351, column 21 in ms-appx://microsoft.winjs.1.0/js/base.js

    0x800c0008 - JavaScript runtime error: The download of the specified resource has failed.

    If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued.

    I had to delete the bin\debug to run it. This is not possible in installed application and this error was causing my application failure.

    I got an elegant solution to get rid of this issue. Somehow it was caching the page and due to which I was getting error at base.js file which I cannot edit.

    So I have added the code to disable the cache

    return WinJS.xhr({
    
                url: url1,
    
                headers: { "Cache-Control": "no-cache", "If-Modified-Since": "Mon, 27 Mar 1972 00:00:00 GMT" }
    
            });

    Windows 8 Application and OData with Netflix

    • 3 Comments

    Windows 8 and OData goes hand in hand. Today while discussing with my sweetheart, I started working on this demo on how to consume OData with Windows 8 Style Application. It does not follow the UX design guideline. However, an honest attempt to demonstrate the capability.

    I have used the most famous Netflix OData from http://odata.netflix.com/v2/Catalog/

    So I have created the Blank Windows Store application

    image

    Then have added the reference

    image

    If you get an error, then most probably the WCF Component is not installed. Follow the error message and download from the link

    image

    After that add the below XAML in MainPage.xaml

    <Grid Background="{StaticResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
    
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    
            <RowDefinition Height="100"></RowDefinition>
    
            <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
    
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    
        <Button x:Name="btnLoad" Content="Load Them" Grid.Row="0" FontSize="36" Click="btnLoad_Click"></Button>
    
        <ListBox x:Name="lstData" Grid.Row="1">
    
            <ListBox.ItemTemplate>
    
                <DataTemplate>
    
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
    
                        <Image Stretch="Uniform" Height="100" Width="100" Margin="3,0">
    
                            <Image.Source>
    
                                <BitmapImage UriSource="{Binding Path=BoxArt.LargeUrl}"></BitmapImage>
    
                            </Image.Source>
    
                        </Image>
    
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Name}"></TextBlock>
    
                            
    
                    </StackPanel>
    
                </DataTemplate>
    
            </ListBox.ItemTemplate>
    
        </ListBox>
    
    </Grid>

    After that C# Code would look like,

    NetFlixSvc.NetflixCatalog context = new NetFlixSvc.NetflixCatalog(new Uri(@"http://odata.netflix.com/v2/Catalog/", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute));
    
    DataServiceCollection<NetFlixSvc.Title> _titles;
    
    public void LoadData()
    
    {
    
        _titles = new DataServiceCollection<NetFlixSvc.Title>();
    
        var query = context.Titles;
    
        _titles.LoadAsync(query);
    
        _titles.LoadCompleted += _titles_LoadCompleted;
    
    }
    
    void _titles_LoadCompleted(object sender, LoadCompletedEventArgs e)
    
    {
    
        lstData.ItemsSource = _titles;
    
    }
    
    private void btnLoad_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    
    {
    
        LoadData();            
    
    }

    The output looks like,

    image

    I am again telling that this violets the basic Windows 8 Style Application design guideline.

    Windows Phone Post Webcast Resources

    • 0 Comments

    Today Sept 3, 2012 I have delivered MSDN Webcast on Windows Phone Application Development. Thanks for the amazing responses. It went for 2 hours and so many questions

    Below are some resources

    Dev Center

    Windows Phone Developer Center

    This is where you go register for marketplace, submit, and manage your app publication process for Windows Phone. We also attempt to create a rational mapping of the content landscape, but we have some limitations on what we can do here, and it often ends up not being as clear as we'd like. This means that App Hub ends up 'mostly' being targeted at the actual 'program' associated with registering and submitting your application.

    This is our 'official' documentation. Note, not _all_ of the official documentation lives under this node. Since Windows Phone's application platform is predominantly based on Silverlight and XNA, you also need to be aware of the key nodes for those specific technologies as well. (supra.).

    Video

    WP for Absolute Beginners

    Astonishingly good series of many videos about how to program for Windows Phone. Even though it is targeted at people who do not know programming at all, I highly recommend it, because it is so well 'grounded,' and gives you a great understanding of why things are done the way they are in C#, IMO.

    Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone

    Makes it easy to build apps (and games), that leverage Azure services. This is an amazing feat in and of itself, worthy of several academy awards, at least.

    Building Windows 8 Metro Style Apps Sessions

    • 0 Comments

    Building Windows 8 Metro style casual games using HTML 5

    The intent of this session is to help HTML5/JavaScript developers with writing their first Metro Style App in a fun, immersive way. We will cover the basics of HTML5 Canvas gaming and how we can easily bring it to Windows 8. We will then add additional game functionality as we introduce the following topics:

    HTML5 Audio, CSS3 Styling and Web Fonts, Implementing a Game Loop with JavaScript, Third Party Frameworks, Touch, Camera Access, Accelerometer, WinJS Controls

    The session ends with HTML5/JavaScript developers having a baseline knowledge to build their own Windows 8 apps and sell them in the new Windows Store.

    Introduction to the Windows 8 platform and the Windows store

    Windows 8 is Windows re-imagined! Join this session to learn about the new platform for building Metro-style applications. Get an understanding of the platform design tenets, the programming language choices, and the integration points with the operating system and across Metro-style apps. We will also discuss the enormous opportunity for developers to make crazy money with the Windows Store. You will walk away with the resources to begin writing Metro applications for Windows 8.

    Bring Your Windows 8 Metro Style Apps to Life with Tiles and Notifications

    Tiles and Notifications are important ways to draw attention to your app and improve your users' experiences. Tiles can draw users back into your app when your tile comes to life on Start screen. They can also let users personalize their Start screen by creating deep links to specific places within your app. Notifications, delivered through the Windows Push Notification Service, can inform and draw your users back into your app even when it's not running. In this session, you will learn how to effectively implement Tiles and Notifications to help your apps shine.

    Win as One: How Contracts in Windows 8 Help You Build a Killer Metro App

    Contracts are agreements between Windows and your Metro style app that allow you to integrate Windows 8 features into your app. For example, Windows 8 lets users share content from one application to another by using the Share contract.

    In this session, you'll learn how contracts work and how to implement the built-in contracts such as Search, Share, Settings, and More. With Contracts, you can help users get more out of your app, and in a way that is consistent and intuitive, and they will reward you by coming back to your app again and again.

    What HTML developers need to know about coding Windows 8 Metro style apps

    This session is perfect for any web developer wanting to leverage his/her skillset to develop Windows 8 Metro style apps. The session begins by proving how much web developers already know about building apps for Windows 8. The focus then turns to how to write JavaScript code with WinJS. Key points for Metro style app development will be highlighted by implementing popular feature requests using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

    Building Metro style apps with XAML: What .NET developers need to know

    If you are experienced with .NET or Silverlight and are already familiar with XAML, this session will teach you everything you need to know to create a Metro style app for Windows 8. This session will cover updates to familiar features and explore concepts that are new for Windows 8. We'll talk about building reusable Windows Runtime Components in C#, Async programming in Windows 8 and both the Visual Studio and Expression designers. This session will show you how to turn your XAML skills into money-making Metro style apps.

    Designing apps with Metro style principles and the Windows personality

    Metro style design has a set of five guiding principles to help you make the best choices when designing your app. These principles are the foundation for building great Metro style apps. Consider these principles as you plan your app, and always ensure your design and development choices live up to these principles.
