    On dev.windowsphone.com it states:

    "You can reserve another name for this app to use in another language or to change its name."

    This kinda left me hoping you would have covered localizing of the application name.

    arko,

    We don't do automated name localization due to the fact that naming is highly brand centric. However, if the app name needs to be localized, you can put the name in the application resources and run it through the Multilingual App Toolkit and use the localized results to reserve those additional names.

    We have a great video on the Multilingual App Toolkit on Inside Windows Phone https://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Inside+Windows+Phone/IWP65-Localization-Made-Easy-with-Multilingual-App-Toolkit

    Hi,

    if you donn't want to create a static resource for your viewmodel to get IntelliSense for binding when you write your xaml code you can use something like this:

    d:DataContext="{d:DesignInstance tables:mydatatype, IsDesignTimeCreatable=True}"
