WP7: My scrollviewer doesn’t work!

If you ever find yourself wondering why your ScrollViewer does not kick in (as I was wondering!); you have most likely forgotten what I did.

You need to set the height and width of the scrollviewer explicitly to make it work.


controls:PivotItem Header="legal">
ScrollViewer Width="460" Height="700">
StackPanel x:Name="stkPnl"/>

The size of this control (ScrollViewer) is simply a “window” to your data that allows you to scroll the content of this window. Due to this reason – you need to tell WP7 that it should only display a fixed window of data to the User.

string[] splits = asmName.Split(',');
return splits[1]; //Version

This will return to you this string: ‘Version
