    In this post, Howard Dierking explains how the trade cards were created for the MSDN Magazine Pivot collection.

    Sorry for the delay in this part in my series documenting how I created the MSDN Magazine Pivot collection. Between the holidays and a bunch of other stuff that’s been happening at work (more on that later), I let this slip through the cracks. Anyways, my gut feel is that for those of you who are interested in creating data-driven Pivot collections, this is likely the installment that you’ll be most interested in.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterGavin Wignall is experimenting with Silverlight Pivot using the pictures of the American Presidents.

    I recently looked into the Microsoft Labs Pivot tool which now allows you to place Pivot experiences within Silverlight projects. To learn this new technology I needed a source of data with correlating imagery to use as a test subject. Seeing as I used the “American Presidents” as one of my test subjects for a DeepZoom experiment over a year ago, I thought to myself, why not use them again.

    First off I scrapped and grabbed as much data on all the 44 Presidents that I could find. This included everything from their birthdays, religion, salaries to how they died and more. Pivot takes all this data after it has been neatly constructed in an XML file and outputs it as a visual interface. This interface allows you to cross reference the data to compare your subjects in a visually attractive manor.

    In the Pivot experiment you will see all 44 Presidents, you can zoom in and out of each President using the mouse wheel or the controls at the top right. On the left are the options to filter and cross reference information. Selecting different data will automatically update the Presidents shown. You can also flick between grid view and bar graph views at the top right of the screen. Zoom into each president by clicking on them, doing this will bring up lots of information on the right hand side. You can drag left, right, up and down to view other presidents, the information on the right will change as you drag around.

    Switch between the Pivot and the DeepZoom examples by pressing the toggle button in the top left of the screen.

    A one of a kind project - DelhiTechnoGradz Pivot, using Pivot Controls in Silverlight and viewable on any browser.

    Pivot is a data visualization technology, designed to help people make better use of digital information. Pivot is a data mining system that “allows people to visualize data and then sort, organize and categorize it dynamically”, which results in correlations and trends that become immediately apparent in a visually interactive format."

    Well , i havn’t got enough time to look in to all the updated videos , but did see some of the new one’s like Panorama and Pivots ,Location and Bing Maps and Optimizing for Performance , looks pretty impressive .

    The Pivots and Panorama session explains about how these features are used in the Metro design and when and how to use them too.The Bing Map session is pretty long too and covers techniques for using the Location Services and the Bing Map Control.

    In the second part of his Architecting Windows Phone 7 applications series, Shawn Wildermuth wants to tackle the use of the Pivot and Panorama control.

    Source: Shawn Wildermuth's Blog

    As I've seen, many developers want to use these controls so determining the best path here is an important discussion.

    Both of these controls work in similar ways in that they have sub-content areas. For example, the Panorama allows you to specify a variable number of panels (or PanoramaItem objects) inside the panorama that make up the control.

    Here is the first post from this series:

    Jeff Fansler discusses the Pivot control and how to return the users exactly where they were in your application when it gets interrupted by a phone call, windows button, etc.

    Source: Jeff Fansler's Blog

    One gotcha to think about when using the pivot is what happens if your application is interrupted (phone call, windows button, etc). When the user navigates back to your app with the back button, the pivot will display the first pivot item. I don’t like that. I want the user to go back exactly where they were. They should see the same pivot item that they were looking at when they navigated away from your app. Here’s how.

    Plenty of examples on working with this stuff in the WP7 Training Kit, so no source code.

    By using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, Tim Greenfield has created a tool that lets you produce a Pivot of all your photos on your hard disk.

    Source: Programmer Payback

    As an amateur photographer, I have always kept my eyes open for new tools to help me search, sort, filter, and view my own photos. Microsoft Pivot (a cool new technology that lets you easily view, search, and filter data using deep zoom) seemed like a natural and obvious fit for the task.

    Therefore, using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, I created a tool that helps users create a pivot collection from the photos on their hard drive and supports filtering by all the nifty meta data embedded in those files such as shutter speed, aperture, film speed, and focal length.
