Lately I have been playing with Pivots for the WP7 and how to add filtering. I did have a MVVM example that I was able to add filtering and convert it to a pivot, but I am not sure the final result was the best way. Susan Ibach, aka HockeyGeekGirl, pointed me to a recent post on how to create a database for Mango. The downloaded version had an issue with a missing reference to the toolkit, so I tried the long way and followed the instructions in the article. Actually, it was not that hard, just a lot of copy and paste. With the instructions, it explained how to install the missing toolkit.
The one gotcha was that the toolkit was premango and installs in C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft SDKs/Windows Phone/v7.0/ rather than C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft SDKs/Windows Phone/v7.1/. Minor point, but I did spend some time looking in the 7.1 directory for the SilverLight toolkit.
The app now works and it is time to start dissecting it.
