Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Downloading a blob to the UI, part of Building Windows Phone 8 Apps with Azure.
…Alright. Well, we've updated plain old notes.…Now, to take a picture with the camera, upload it to Azure…Blobs storage, and associate it with our note in the Azure table storage.…Your coding challenge is going to be to update…the UI to show the picture in the Editor.…We're going to do that by adding an image control.…And then we're going to add a method to the notes model called Get…Picture From Note, which will go out and check that picture path property.…See if it has something in it,…download the note from Azure Blob Storage, convert it…into a bitmap image and return it, and then inside…the editor CS file we'll be able to take…that and assign it to the source of this image.…
We're also going to check to see if in fact…the image exists, and if it doesn't, we're going to go…ahead and hide the image control so that when you…go to the editor for notes that have an image.…You'll see the image at the top, and if you don't have…an image, the note will be positioned at the top of the UI.…So, I expect this to take you about 10 minutes.…
