    Want to build a Bing web and image search using Silverlight for Windows Phone 7? Kirupa Chinnathambi of the Expression team shows you just how to do that in this week's episode. Kirupa covers a lot of topics as he builds the app, including how to:

    • wire up the app
    • add the image templates
    • use the Pivot control
    • apply the built in resources to pick up the selected theme in the phone
    • use sample data
    • template a ListBox's ItemsPanel
    • use the WrapPanel from the toolkit
    • handle orientation changes of the phone
    • customize the ApplicationBar
    And Kirupa does all of this through Expression Blend!

    Note: The WrapPanel used in this episode was from the Silverlight 3 Toolkit. Today the Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit was released, which includes the WrapPanel. Check out what other controls are in the toolkit in John's post.
