Thanks for this. I have downloaded the source... I assume thats where it is (the example). There seem to be a number of solutions ... which one should I open to get to the example? (sorry - newsish to .NET and VS and this is a larger
project than I have been working with up to now!)
And .. just a query about what I am doing... I am writing a WP7 app and I am generating a bitmap for use and the image in a live tile. I cannot do this in the Periodic task because I cannot use a textblock etc withi the background
thread. So, I am generating a bitmap within the foreground phone app - storing it in isolated storage and retrieving that within my periodic task and presenting that image as part of my live tile. It works ok, but given the bitmap
is directly associatred with an object in my DB then it would be cleaner to store and manage it with its object.
Just wondering if you had any thoughts on this around - are there performance reasons not to store in the DB? I understand that the periodic task has contraints around memory usage - would moving the image to the database affect this?
