Just adjust the percentages in the rows:
Quick question: do the percentages have to be integers?

Re: Best way to scale a multi-panel UI?

Thanks for the help. Just to clarify, I'd like to keep the vertical proportions of the transparent area (the black box) and the panels the same on all devices. e.g. top panel 10% of vertical screen height, bottom panel 25%, middle area 65%. The width of the top and bottom panels can change as needed...

Re: Dynamically loaded icons / mobile app

Basically, we want to avoid having to resubmit the app to Apple. For example... 1) We launch v1.0. It includes 100 items for the player to use, all of which are represented by vector elements. Each element is defined in the xaml.nsb file that is part of the app bundle. 2) Three months later, we add ...

Re: Dynamically loaded icons / mobile app

Found some interesting info on the font workaround. Seems you can load a font dynamically in an iOS app. See http://www.marco.org/2012/12/21/ios-dynamic-font-loading . Here's what I propose: We create a custom symbol font called foo.ttf. Like any symbol font, Foo.ttf would contain a bunch of custom ...

Dynamically loaded icons / mobile app

Like many free-to-play mobile games, we will be releasing a steady stream of new content over time. Much of the content will be in the form of items the player can use in-game. Our game uses a content management system that lets us dynamically define new content. When the game loads, it checks in wi...

Best way to scale a multi-panel UI?

This is for an iOS and Android app. The image below shows the approximate layout. There is a top panel, a bottom panel, and the middle area is transparent (gameplay is seen in this area). Each panel has an outline on three sides, and contains a number of static and dynamic elements e.g. circular but...

Re: XAML WYSIWYG Editor for Mac!?

Quick update... I installed Visual Studio Community Edition (from here: http://www.visualstudio.com/news/vs2013-community-vs ) on Win 8.1 under virtualbox. The install took a very long time to complete (more than an hour) but everything seems to work. Net result is Blend running on a mac for about $...

Re: XAML WYSIWYG Editor for Mac!?

I'm typing this on my Mac, using google chrome running in Win 8.1 under virtualbox. All seems to work fine so far. Will now try installing the MS tools and see how I get on. @Scherub: thanks for the heads up. Our dev is still wading through the docs so he may not have reached that part yet... but I'...

Re: XAML WYSIWYG Editor for Mac!?

Couple of things... If you need to run a virtual machine on a Mac, try Virtualbox ( https://www.virtualbox.org/ ). It's free, and based on my recent experience, a lot less painful than Parallels used to be. I'm currently using it to run Ubuntu and CentOS from an external drive and it works like magi...
