Hello to everyone behind Coding4Fun toolkit :)

First of all thank you guys for a amazing job you've done already. All these stuff is really helpful. But it seems that there are no Spinner control. Does anybody have plans to add this control to the toolkit?

Cheers,

PZ

What do you mean by spinner, like the timespan?

By spinner I mean something like this control http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsphone7series/thread/b2fccd9e-3c13-469a-898e-048d5a89591d (by Jonathan Tanner)

I found similar control really useful in many places on my Desire :) It will be greate to have it on WP7.

wonder how hard this would be to abstract out of the timespan / date / time control.

For example this spinner really useful on Alarm and Timer applications on HTC Desire. Actually, I haven't tried yet but maybe it won't be too difficult to change a bit your TimeSpan Picker control to receive desired behavior.

that is either a time or timespan picker.  Is there a Screenshot or picture of what your thinking about?  or you want the timespan part but not have it launch on a new page?

Of course this is dummy sketch but I hope it makes the idea more clear: https://picasaweb.google.com/115782744503894789587/WP7DummySketches. When you tap and scroll this control down or up it scrolls like a wheel. The speed of scrolling depends on how much the wheel was swung down or up.
