World clock app for window phone 8 c#


If you want to know time at any location in the world, use this app in windows phone. This app offers numbers of features, including an interactive time zone list. Select any time zone, which is given in the list and check it. No advertisements are shown in this app. Basically This app is designed for beginners, who want to know about windows phone app development.

How to Install it in windows phone

  1. Download the mentioned package
  2. Use .xap file for running it.

Learn How to design it

To create a new app in windows phone 8, the steps are listed below:
To create a new app in windows phone 8
  1. Create a new project by going through File | New Project | Windows Phone Application - Visual C#. Give a desired project name( World Clock is my app name).
  2. From Solution Explorer, open MainPage.xaml file. (If Solution Explorer  is currently not opened then open it via View>>Other Windows>> Solution Explorer).

  3. Change name of your header text, which is in TextBlock(Inside stack panel).
  4. Add a listbox control in the grid panel control. Also bind from ItemSource property.
  5. Add a class in the project, which name is "timezone.cs". Add two public property inside in it. Now, code look like
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    namespace WorldClock
     class timezone
     public String timename { get; set; }
     public string ImagePath { get; set; }
6.  Now add some utc time in the list collection with flag images. Also bind this with ListBox using DataContext
  List chemists = new List();
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-12:00 Internatioanl Date Line West", ImagePath = "image/Internatioanl Date Line West.jpg" });
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-11:00 Coordinated Universal Time-11", ImagePath = "image/Internatioanl Date Line West.jpg" });
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-10:00 Hawaii", ImagePath = "image/hawaii.jpg" });
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-09:00 Alaska", ImagePath = "image/Alaska.gif" });
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-08:00 Baja California", ImagePath = "image/bajaflag.jpg" });
            chemists.Add(new timezone() { timename = "UTC-08:00 Pacific Time(US & Canada)", ImagePath = "image/uscan.jpg" });

  7. Now, use DispatcherTimer class for update the time with 1 sec.  Now, use this code for update the time
DispatcherTimer newTimer = new DispatcherTimer();
newTimer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);
            newTimer.Tick += OnTimerTick;
void OnTimerTick(Object sender, EventArgs args)
            clocklabel.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString();
8 .Create the code for each index of ListBox also display the result on MessageBox.

private void lstCountries_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
            switch (list1.SelectedIndex)
                case 0: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-720).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);
                case 1: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-660).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);
                case 2: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-600).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);
                case 3: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-540).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);
                case 4: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-480).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);
                case 5: MessageBox.Show(dt.AddMinutes(-480).ToString() + TimeZoneInfo.Utc.DaylightName);


9. Run this app in Emulator WVGA 512mb, now code will generate the output.

Run this app in Emulator WVGA 512mb

When you select any item from the given list then phone emulator display the time according to the time zone. Basically this system designed on UTC time.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
