I have been working on a windows 7 phone application. I know, many of you may give me a hard time about developing for winphone7 vs iPhone or android. Well, I’m working on getting to each of them eventually. Currently Phone 7 made sense.
So far development has been pretty straight forward. I was adding an application bar to the bottom of the app to allow for menu items and icons for actions. In doing so I could not for the life of me get the icons to show. I tried chaning he names the uri path and even the case of the images. No matter what I did I could not figure out why they would not show.
In the end, after some googling I found that it is an issue with the image file. In my case mail.png file.
The fix was to change it to content. It seems strange that this would not be the default action for an image in a Win7Phone project.
