    These lessons are already a great improvement over the previous one. I really enjoy going over the controls and learned about converting the data type, by adding the data type in parenthesis before the variable and the nullable values such as "bool?" vs "bool".

    Hi Bob

    I am a big fan of yours. Another great video.  I would like to know, if you have any plans of making a similar video series using JavaScript.

    I'm new with XMAL and learned a lot from your videos. There's just one question related to this video I guess.

    You showed how to use a "Toggle Button" but I was going for "Toggle Switch".

    I couldn't find how to trigger a "Toggle Switch Event" which would control the active mode of the progress ring.

    I would really appreciate your help on this. :D

    For some reason that does not work for me:
    Value="{Binding ElementName=mySlider, Path=Value, Mode=OneTime}"
    what works instead is this (done from Properties window):
    Value="{Binding Value,ElementName=mySlider}"

    This is kind of strange, because when I do the binding from Properties window I select OneWay, which gives the second/working form.

    @Archee the mode is OneWay not OneTime.

    Hi Bob, you are my favourite teacher. I always discuss about your tutorials with my colleagues and friends. I have installed the Microsoft visual studio 2013 community version on my dell Inspiron laptop. I have created the windows phone application successfully but I am not able to test it on emulator. I am getting the error my system required Hyper-V. I searched a lot, tried my best but failed. Discussed with my friends but nobody knows it's solution. Please help me.
