Developing a Windows Phone Application using the MVVM Pattern

Last year I worked with Patterns and Practices to develop a number of pieces of guidance concerning Windows Phone development. One of the items was Developing a Windows Phone Application using the MVVM Pattern.

This guidance shows you the basics of MVVM and dependency injection through a sample application, PetrolTracker, that enables you to track the petrol consumption of three vehicles. The sample application is authored two different ways so that you can see the progression from a code-behind implementation, to a view model implementation whose dependencies are injected. Some of the topics that you will learn about include the following:

  • Application Launching Events
  • Saving and Restoring Page State
  • The Motivation for MVVM
  • The MVVM Pattern
  • The Benefits of MVVM
  • Connecting View Models to Views
  • Dependency Injection
  • Invoking Commands from a View
  • Invoking Navigation from a View
  • Displaying User Interface Notifications
  • Abstracting the Windows Phone 7.1 SDK
  • Unit Testing MVVM Applications
For more information, see Developing a Windows Phone Application using the MVVM Pattern.
