Windows 8 devices are certainly showing variety today. New convertible Ultrabooks and Intel tablets have screens that fold over, slide out or detach from the keyboard. When you build an app, and send out to the market, you don't know if the user has one of these new devices, what type and or what position the screen is to the base. This could create a usability issue if you created an app that leverages the motion sensors.
OK, so you are making an awesome new Windows 8* app using the C# programming language and XAML designer in Visual Studio* 2012. You open up the designer for your XAML file and want to paste in a calendar item (DatePicker) into your app. You peruse through the Toolbox to find that…there's nothing there out-of-the-box to do this! What should we do? Plan B: build one! This article shows you how!
