Sorry, I think I misunderstood what you were asking. Yes, it's a shareware component, and yes, testers get the full HDSoft package; that means full source code (Win32 C++, non-MFC) is included, plus projects for VS2008, VS2010, and (maybe) VS6.
The beta is distributed on the same basis as other HDSoft components - testers can compile the component into their products, but may not distribute the source code.
Please ask here if you have more questions, or send email.
Ja ja it is true. I live (programmaticaly talking) in the end of the world. People here does not know what it is WP7, Android and with tablets say what!. I am posting in my new blog interesting things. Thank you for remembering me. I will post a complete article with the windows 8 template soon. (For WPF of course). The only thing I am lost is with the issue that WPF doesn't have projections (because is pure 3D) so the tilt and else is confusing.
I recommend you to take a look at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.0\Design
There you have the xaml in order to get easier the information for the templates that you want to create in CSS3 I guess. And I hope that the CSS3 draft grid come official some day.
I'd like to invite you to check out an open source app I've written:
It's a file explorer that runs on a browser, especially useful for anyone who has a media computer in his living room, and need a better view and navigation on his files.
Runs on .NET 4.0 and IIS Express, supports browsing through folders, opening files, quick filter, multi-column sorting, folder image view, and more... Graphics is still very basic (contributors anyone?)
The quality and detail of your question reflects on the effectiveness of the help you are likely to get. Please use <PRE> tags for code snippets, they improve readability. CP Vanity has been updated to V2.3
That's a tricky one, and depends largely on the mood of whoever is answering on that particular day. If it's a commercial product then it's probably going to be treated as advertising by some of the regulars, even if you only want beta testers. If you're being legit, then take the 1 votes on the chin.
I'm not a stalker, I just know things. Oh by the way, you're out of milk.
