Silverlight TV 45: Building a Bing Web and Image Search App for Windows Phone 7 Using Blend and Silverlight

24 minutes, 42 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Want to build a Bing web and image search using Silverlight for Windows Phone 7? Kirupa Chinnathambi of the Expression team shows you just how to do that in this week's episode. Kirupa covers a lot of topics as he builds the app, including how to:

  • wire up the app
  • add the image templates
  • use the Pivot control
  • apply the built in resources to pick up the selected theme in the phone
  • use sample data
  • template a ListBox's ItemsPanel
  • use the WrapPanel from the toolkit
  • handle orientation changes of the phone
  • customize the ApplicationBar

And Kirupa does all of this through Expression Blend!

Note: The WrapPanel used in this episode was from the Silverlight 3 Toolkit. Today the Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit was released, which includes the WrapPanel. Check out what other controls are in the toolkit in John's post.

    Hey Now John,


    Great Vid & Nice Shades!


    Thx 4 the info,


  • Simon (Darkside) JacksonSimon (Darkside) Jackson

    The sample does not compile in the WP7 dev tools RTM using the latest version of the silverlight toolkit for windows phone.
    Bad reference and then complains about the WrapPanel not being a recognised XML attribute.

  • Great tutorial - thanks

  • KirupaKirupa

    @Simon (Darkside) Jackson: You need to have the Silverilght 3 Toolkit installed because the video was recorded before we had the Silverlight Toolkit for Windows Phone out. I'll send John an updated link with a revised version of the sample shortly :P

  • DaleDale

    I've installed the "Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit" at http://silverlight.codeplex.com/ then replace the reference to "Microsoft.Phone.Controls.Toolkit". And changed the following in MainPage.xaml: xmlns:controlsToolkit="clr-namespace:Microsoft.Phone.Controls;assembly=Microsoft.Phone.Controls.Toolkit"It is working fine. 

  • DwayneDwayne

    @Dale: How did you get this this to work? I sit for hours trying to figure it out( mind you I have not programming experience). I finally got the app to load, but now when I do a search the app crashes. What am I doing wrong?

  • Kirupa Chinnathambikirupa It's me!

    Dwayne - the reason might be that you never specified your own Bing API Developer ID on Line 42 in MainPage.xaml.cs.

    You can get your own ID for free from here: http://www.bing.com/developers/createapp.aspx

    Kirupa =)

    Btw - here is the link to the source that works with the Windows Phone Toolkit itself: http://www.kirupa.com/windowsphone/source/Silverlight TV - WP7 Demo Source.zip
