Better MSDN documentation like we have for Win32 APIs
Can we have better quality documentation on MSDN? (Especially context help from Visual Studio)? I am coming from Win32 background, and I am used to having very detailed better documentation. In WP7 world, I have below problems
1. The default context passed from Visual Studio. When I have a WP7 project open why can't the context documentation default to Silverlight? Every time it opens in "NET Framework 4" context, and I need to change to Silverlight to get WP7 specific version
2. Utter lack of documentation of few controls. E.g. Pivot Item SelectionChanged event
Only valuable line in that whole page is “Occurs when the currently selected item changes.”. It does not even link to SelectionChangedEventArgs, what is the type of Sender? How do I get the selected PivotItem? How to PivotItem that lost selection?
Thanks for your feedback. We are looking at ways to improve our documentation for the next release.

One more are that needs some more attention is INotifyCollectionChanged Interface, there is no (not even one) single example for any of the APIs/Classes. The quality of documentation for this interface is pathetic to say the least.
