Ioc.Ui in WP7

Dec 1, 2011 at 6:53 PM


Is there any plans to make IOc.UI to work with Windows Phone7?

We are porting our current application from windows phone 6.5 to wp7 and because we have been using ioc framework in our app it would greatly benefit us in future also to be able to use also the Ui part of it.

Previously we used MCSF in our app but moved to ioc because it is much lighter and robust to use. 

Hopefully this is coming soon!

I had thought about it, yes, and it's still not off the table.  The main issue is that Phone changes paradigms wildly with respect to screen creation, so it's not obvious that there are fully analogous pieces for the UI bits.  The DI Container/EventAggregation stuff all works fine, it's just shoehorning the Workspace/SmartPart stuff in isn't 100% clear.  Maybe a PivotWorkspace or a PanoramaWorkspace would make sense?
