The Windows Phone SDK in Silverlight provides the class VibrateController which the developer can use to make the phone vibrate.

All that the developer has to do is create an instance of the VibrateController and call the start method with the timespan.

VibrateController vibrate = VibrateController.Default;

Similarly, PhoneGap provides the notification.vibrate method to make your Windows Phone vibrate.

The navigator.notification.vibrate takes one argument i.e the milliseconds to vibrate your Windows Phone.


<script type="text/javascript">

function Button1_onclick()

{ navigator.notification.vibrate(20000) }



.Net developers: use Highcards, the industry's leading interactive charting library, without writing a single line of JavaScript.
