comment VisualStateManager with Windows Phone 8.1 BottomAppBar
i do remember not being able to bind so yes indeed you're right about it being better! in fact I just tested this in win10 mobile and it does work with the visual states, so there's that too :) thanks again for your help

comment VisualStateManager with Windows Phone 8.1 BottomAppBar
thanks I remember this issue from wp7 but I thought they updated this in 8.1 to not use the shell so you could do stuff like this, guess I was wrong! I wanted storyboards because I'm showing/hiding based on interaction not a value that I can bind... but at least I know for sure, thanks!

comment How do you utilize the flipview and make a "selection" by tapping or clicking the screen?
it appears the tapped event is also fired if you tap/click the navigation arrows to advance to the next item in the flipview... this is okay to handle in the code-behind since I can filter out the event by inspecting the OriginalSource and make sure it's the image... but I can't seem to find a way to do this if I'm using behaviors to trigger a command on tapped, since the navigation arrow triggers it but doesn't have the context of the tapped item. any ideas?

comment Windows 10 keeps switching network location from Private to Public
definitely have wpa-psk security on the network, and none of my other machines have this problem. i thought perhaps it was due to the hyper-v virtual switches (for win10 mobile emulators) but I disabled/removed them all. this worked for a while but on next reboot is switched right back to public!

comment add watermark on image in windows8
is this still true? I notice that there are apps in the windows phone store that do stuff like chromakey (green screen) which I'm assuming is a similar concept. are those silverlight only apps or is there now a way to overlay one image on top of another in phone 8.1 rt?
