  • Question

  • I've been testing with the windows phone emulator, and i'll soon be testing with a Nokia lumia. Im making everything fit perfectly on the emulator. It's 480x768 with the status bar still visible. Im worried about window's phones that have larger screens or smaller screens. How can I make sure the app fits perfectly for them all? Please help.

    Thanks

  • All windows phone 7/7.5 phones have the same resolution, 480x800, regardless of physical screen size. So it will look the same/fit the same on all devices.

    The advice above is still good, about using resizing/layout containers, but it is less of a concern for WP7/7.5 because all devices have the same resolution.

  • Don't use fixed positioning of elements. Use containers that allow your controls to move about in a predictable manner.
