AcceleratedKnob is an anisotropic image generator for Windows Phone 7. It mimics the metallic knob that was first seen in the iOS6 music app.
The idea, the images and the logic came from danielamitay's DAAnisotropicImage project on github.
A minor disclaimer is due here. I am not sure, if mimicing such control like this is a good idea or fits the Metro design language. I just wanted to see if similar control can be built for Windows Phone 7.
Just get the following files in your project:
Also make sure that you reference the Microsoft.Xna.Framework.dll from the lib folder of this project. After this you are ready to go!
If you like this project or you need some help, let me know!
