how can we enable or disable the application bar buttons using C# code. like for some condition I want the app bar button to be enabled and for some disable. i tried doing appbutton1.IsEnabled = false; but this way it gives an exception. Any other way to do it.??

The application bar consists of a Buttons collection and MenuItems collection.Try something like..
C#
foreach (var button in ApplicationBar.Buttons)
{
    ((ApplicationBarIconButton) button).IsEnabled = false; // disables the button
}

ApplicationBar.IsMenuEnabled = false; // this will prevent menu from opening

It enables and disables all the buttons. If I want to enable or disable just 1 button what should I change.???

you can use IsEnabled=false property to disable a button or ApplicationBar.Buttons.Remove(object).See more from here:http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13287034/set-visibility-of-applicationbariconbutton-to-false-in-wp7
