    Ok i have identical code written in C#. But for some reason the same C# code in a Windows Phone 7 app doesnt compile. The only things causing problems are ArrayLists are said to not exist, and also System.Enum does not have a GetValues() method for some reason. This is for the blackjack app i made a thread about a while ago.

    I know somebody knows, or does this only use a subset of C#?

    You should probably do some research into the differences of programming for Windows and Windows Mobile.

    I probably should. I figured since windows phone 7 is a new architecture and it won't be released til the end of the year maybe some people were experimenting with it. I didn't think programming for windows mobile and windows phone were the same since they are pushing the fact that there is no backwards compatibilty.

    i figured out my first problem. But i need help with my foreach loop now. Currently i'm using
    Code:
    foreach (Faces F in Enum.GetValues(typeof(Faces)))
    But the GetValues method doesnt exist in Silverlight and i'm having a hard time finding an alternative.

    Windows phone 7 works via Silverlight? No native .NET applications anymore? I understood a lot wouldn't work, but this is really crap.
