How to make a clock/alarm system app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am completely new to windows phone 7 development and i have little visual basic, .NET, and c# experience so, i'm not very sure how to do this. This, being how to create a clock for windows phone 7, or an alarm system if you will because i don't like any of the current dual clock-alarm systems currently available for the phone and would like to create my own. If anyone could help me with this in any way, including giving me links on how too's or just giving me any information you might think is helpful, i would appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance!

  • In c# take a look at using a dispatchtimer..... if has a tick that fires on a programmable interval. In the timer tick event you can place code to update your clock. I have a series of blog posts about a sudoku game I developed. One of the posts has a small segment on using the timer to create a session clock. Blog.Xamlware.com. Hope this helps...
