Microsoft’s new mobile operating system, Windows Phone 7 (WP7), introduces a fresh approach to content organization and a different UX, based on the Metro design language and principles that will be incorporated into Windows 8. It also targets a different market than its predecessor: instead of being designed mainly for business and technology workers, WP7 is targeted at active people with a busy life, both offline and online, and who use social networks every day, whatever their background.

Why Should Designers Care? Link First, it’s a new interface, so you have space to create and develop some new ideas for it. We are still at the beginning of its growing curve, so it’s an interesting challenge. When I saw a WP7 presentation for the first time, I thought, “I want to design something for this.” Exploring is a great way to learn how to build a new exciting experience for users. Secondly, Metro design is a market reality that we can’t ignore. A New Approach To Design Link Panorama Link.

Guidelines for list boxes (or select) - Windows app development. Windows app: enabled and disabled list boxes Windows Phone app: list box Description A list box (also known as a select) gives the user a way to choose usually one item, but sometimes several, from a list of items. Items in a list box can be scrolled if there isn’t space to show all of them. Example Is this the right control? Use a list box when the items are important enough to display prominently. Factors that indicate against using a list box include: There are a very small number of items. Dos and don'ts Verify that the purpose of the list box, and which items are currently selected, is clear.Reserve visual effects and animations for touch feedback, and for the selected state of items.Limit the list box item’s text content to a single line.

Additional usage guidance Appearance and interaction A list box is always open (in contrast to a drop-down list). A list box control presents its list of items vertically by default. Related topics. Cards - Components - Google design guidelines. The primary action in a card is typically the card itself. Supplemental actions can vary from card to card in a collection, depending on the content type and expected outcome; for example, playing a movie versus opening a book. Within cards in a collection, position actions consistently. Supplemental actions Supplemental actions within the card are explicitly called out using icons, text, and UI controls, typically placed at the bottom of the card.

Limit supplemental actions to two actions, in addition to an overflow menu. UI controls UI controls, like a slider, placed inline with primary content can modify the view of the primary content. Overflow menu An overflow menu (optional) is typically placed in the upper-right corner of cards, but can be in the lower right if the placement improves content layout and legibility. Take care not to overload an overflow menu with too many actions. Considerations Inline links within text content are strongly discouraged. Design. Multi-resolution apps for Windows Phone 8. Because all Windows Phone OS 7.1 phones have the same resolution, you can lay out your content so that it looks good on one Windows Phone OS 7.1 phone, and know that it will look good on all Windows Phone OS 7.1 phones.

You don’t have to consider the internals of how each control stretches and flows. In Windows Phone 8 Update 3, you have to lay out controls and other UI elements to look good in each of the supported aspect ratios. Since Windows Phone 8 Update 3 phones can have one of two aspect ratios – 15:9 or 16:9 - controls laid out for one aspect ratio may be laid out unexpectedly at the other aspect ratio. To make a page render correctly on phones with WVGA, WXGA, 720p, and 1080p resolutions, don’t hard-code the height and width or the margins of the controls. To create an adaptable layout, you can use a container like the Grid control. The following XAML shows the code for a layout that uses the Grid control to implement these guidelines.
