    When you start learning a new platform, the documentation can only take you so far. The Windows Phone 7 docs are great, but when you start developing your first application, you will inevitably run into issues that the documentation doesn't cover. We are creating the Fuel Tracker guidance application to help people through this process. The idea is to address some of the most common issues that come up for all applications.

    Karl Erickson is excited to find out that Silverlight 4 now extends the out-of-browser feature to include support for window customization through the Window class.

    Basically, this feature lets you draw the entire window area yourself. You have complete control within the window rectangle (optionally with rounded corners).

    This gives you a lot of room for both creativity and abuse. It is your responsibility to take usability into consideration and provide custom UI for common window interactions as appropriate. To help out with this, you can programmatically move, resize, pin, minimize, normalize, maximize, and close the window.
