The VibrateController Class for Windows Phone

I am currently working on another Windows Phone Application, where I needed a way to show the user that they had successfully performed a task and therefore unlocked another feature inside the application.

First idea was adding some sound, but somehow I was not happy with that. So I thought, why not let the phone vibrate?

It’s actually not that hard. The Windows Phone 7 SDK allows me to control the vibrate function easily.

In the namespace Microsoft.Devices there is a class defined with the name ‘VibrateController’.

The only code I need for that function is:

When the user clicks the particular button, the phone vibrates.

A few thoughts to keep in mind:

1. the shortest vibration / pause is 0.1 seconds.

2. the longest is 5 seconds, but that is not recommended.

3. 3 vibrations in one sequence are enough.

4. 0.2 / 0.3 are good choices for an alert.

 

Here you can find more information about the VibrateController Class.
