Link between Accelerometer and composant in xaml

## Introduction

Accelerometer is used mostly on Games , then we can move objects with just moving our device and it's so easy to do that.

## Using the code

Fisrt of all we create an instance of `Accelerometer :`

`Accelerometer a = Accelerometer();`

Then we precise the `TimeBetweenUpdates, `means that how many time you want to update the change of accelerometer. For Example :

```a.TimeBetweenUpdates = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(10);
```

Then you define the Event `CurrentValueChanged `that will be called after any update to inform us the new x,y,z axes then we start.

```a.CurrentValueChanged += new EventHandler<SensorReadingEventArgs<AccelerometerReading>>(a_CurrentValueChanged);

a.Start();```

so the responsible method that execute after update is `a_CurrentValueChanged : `

```void a_CurrentValueChanged(Object sender, SensorReadingEventArgs<Microsoft.Devices.Sensors.AccelerometerReading> sr)
{
}
double x, y, z;
{

Vector3 xyz = ar.Acceleration;

x += xyz.X;
y += xyz.Y;
z += xyz.Z;
```

After we get the three demension of accelerometer , we can now bind it to an object.

we create for example an `Ellipse : `

`<Ellipse Width="50" Height="50" Fill="Blue" Name="cercle" />`

on the code behind we link the `Margin `of the Ellipse by the Vector xyz :

```cercle.Margin = new Thickness(x * 15, -y * 15, -x * 15, y * 15);
```

You can modify the Speed of the Object by multiplying  coordinates.

## History

I thing it become so clear to work with accelerometer , you can now create your First Game !
