HowTo scale ListViews for external Screens (HDMI)

As you probably know, at the moment there's no way to use Cascades to design Pages for external Screens connected via HDMI cable or wireless using Miracast.

 

I've played something using scaling, resizing and repositioning and perhaps it will help you to use this technic as a workaround.

 

There's a Blog post: http://appbus.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/mobile-computing-scale-lists-for-2nd-screen-hdmi/

and a Git repositiory: https://github.com/ekke/cascades_lists_on_hdmi

 

To get a feeling what you can do:

 

Instead of mirroring the content from Device Screen:

 

device_screen.png

 

it could look like this:

 

scaled_screen.png

 

all automatically done when an external monitor is attached.

 

Have fun and if there are questions: that's the reason why I created this Thread here.
