It's time for another July TechNet Guru winner!
Congratulations to Ken Tucker, our Windows Phone Development Guru winner for July! See the TechNet Guru Contributions for July 2013.
About Ken: MCPD. I am interested in MVC, WP8, WP7, and Windows Store apps. An MVP, MCC, and Microsoft Partner, who works at Sea World.
Here is the gold-medal-winning article:
Create an Analog Clock in a Windows Store Application
Now let's look at all the winning articles:
Nine great articles contributed for July, thanks to everyone in the Windows Store category. Sachin S also contributed FOUR great articles for July and narrowly missed a medal. Hopefully we will see more from all these players in August?
Also, Jaliya had an impressive showing with more medals in another category! Jaliya also won all three medals for the Visual C# category!
And here's an excerpt from the article:
This sample uses xaml and C# to create an analog clock in a windows store application. Xaml allows you to vary the angle of lines when drawn on the screen. I used an ellipse as the background of the clock. We will draw 3 lines for the hour, seconds, and minute hand on an analog clock.
The C# code:
DispatcherTimer timer = new DispatcherTimer();
timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);
timer.Tick += timer_Tick;
void timer_Tick(object sender, object e)
secondHand.Angle = DateTime.Now.Second * 6;
minuteHand.Angle = DateTime.Now.Minute * 6;
hourHand.Angle = (DateTime.Now.Hour * 30) + (DateTime.Now.Minute * 0.5);
