Need help with Notepad App feature development
I would like some help to get started on this, I have attached the pdf (what I am supposed to do with pictures) and also what code I have done thusfar in developing this app.
Add an application bar icon button whose Text is "settings". Add an application bar menu item
whose text is "archive".
In OnNavigatedTo, set some properties for the TextBox on this page to match similar properties in
the Note class. So the TextBox Background should be set to the Note's ScreenBrush property, its
Foreground should be set to the Note's TextBrush property, and its FontSize should be set to the
Note's TextSize property.
You will need to make changes to OnNavigatedTo, your method that saves a note, and your method
that deletes a note. Once again, you will have to determine which list of notes you are working with.
You will need to add an event handler for the "archive" menu click. You will want to remove the
current note form the active list and add it to the archive list.
You need to add an event handler for the settings icon button click. When this button is clicked,
navigate to a new xaml page named PageSettings.xaml. That page is shown below.
This is the page that allows a user to choose a background screen color, text color, and font size for
the notes. Clicking on the screen color rectangle or text color rectangle should bring up a xaml page
that contains 16 rectangles for 16 colors. Install event handlers for MouseLeftButtonUp on the two
Rectangles seen above. Use a query string parameter when navigating to the color picker xaml page
so that you know which rectangle was clicked on. See http://msdn.microsof...7(v=vs.85).aspx
for color names and html color codes.
The user should be able to click on one of the 16 colored rectangles and then click an app bar icon
button to "save" that choice. When save is clicked on this page, set the TempScreenColor variable in
the Settings class (or the TempTextColor variable) to the chosen color and then navigate back to this
settings page. Also put a "cancel" app bar icon button that when clicked will simply navigate back
to the settings page.
I suggest providing a name for each of the 16 rectangles. Then, in a MouseLeftButtonUp event
handler, you can cast sender to a Rectangle type. Now you can access the rectangle's name. Use a
switch statement to check which rectangle was clicked on and generate a Color that matches that
When you navigate back to the Settings page, check TempScreenColor and TempTextColor. If they
are not null, that means that the user choose a screen color or text color and that the current note
should now set its ScreenColor and/or TextColor to the chosen value(s).
Also set the screen color rectangle on this page and the rectangle that contains the "Sample text"
string to the chosen screen color. Set the text color rectangle on this page and the string "Sample
text" to the chosen text color. Remember to set those temp variables back to null after fetching the
The slider seen above should be used to size the text. As the slider is adjusted, set both the "Sample
text" string and the current note's TextSize to be the slider's value. The reset button should set the
TextSize back to its default size
Thanks in advance!!
