A Few Questions

Aug 2, 2013 at 11:43 PM

I found your Util after looking around at some other ones and not being happy with them. I think your might be what I am looking for but I have a few questions.
  1. Why can you not bind the command through blend UI?
  2. It's not a big deal but just wonder why you need to do it in code behind.
  3. "Id" confuses me.
  4. I was really confused about "ID" even after watching the video. I thought "Id" meant the x:Name on the button in application tool bar. I think it is the text value. Is that correct?
        <shell:ApplicationBarIconButton IconUri="/Content/add.png" Text="Save" x:Name="Add" />
Id would be "Text" not "Add"
  1. What is the "Text" and "Icon" properties for in the AppBarItemCommand? Is that for if you want to dynamically switch the text and icon?
