Palindrome Number in Windows Store App

In this article I describe Palindrome Numbers in a Windows Store app. We will begin with a brief explanation of Palindrome Numbers.

Palindrome Number

A number that is equal to itself when reversed is called a Palindrome Number.

Example: 121, 131, 11 etc.

Now let us create a Palindrome Number app in Windows Store.

Step 1

First of all you have to create a new Windows Store Application.

  • Open Visual Studio 2012
  • "File" -> "New" -> "Project..."
  • Choose "Template" -> "Visual C#" -> "Window Store app"
  • Choose "Blank App (XAML)" then rename the application


Step 2

Write the following XAML code in "Mainpage.Xaml" (that is available in Solution Explorer):


    x:Class="Palindrome_number_app.MainPage"    xmlns=""






    <Grid Background="Blue">


            <RowDefinition Height="38*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="23*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="31*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="32*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="63*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="581*"/>



            <ColumnDefinition Width="161*"/>

            <ColumnDefinition Width="349*"/>

            <ColumnDefinition Width="856*"/>


        <TextBlock Text="Check Number is Palindrome numbers or not" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="14" FontWeight="ExtraBold" Foreground="Red" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="2"></TextBlock>

        <TextBlock Text="Enter Number:" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="15" FontWeight="ExtraBold" Foreground="Red" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2"></TextBlock>

        <TextBox x:Name="Textbox1" Width="150" Height="32" VerticalAlignment="Top" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="2" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Grid.RowSpan="2" />

        <TextBlock Text="Number is:" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="15" FontWeight="ExtraBold" Foreground="Red" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="3"></TextBlock>

        <TextBlock x:Name="text2" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="15" FontWeight="ExtraBold" Foreground="Red" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="3" Margin="5,0,782,0" Height="32" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" />

        <Button Content="Click" Click="Button1_click" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="4" FontSize="15" Foreground="Red" Background="Yellow" Width="137" Height="38" Margin="0,15,0,10" ></Button>



Step 3

Now write the following C# code for the button within "Mainpage.Xaml.cs".

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.IO;

using System.Linq;

using Windows.Foundation;

using Windows.Foundation.Collections;

using Windows.UI.Xaml;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Data;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Input;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Media;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Navigation;


namespace Palindrome_number_app


    public sealed partial class MainPage : Page


        public MainPage()




        protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)



       private void Button1_click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            int num = Convert.ToInt32(Textbox1.Text);

            int rev = 0;

            int num1 = num;

            while (num > 0)


                int r = num % 10;

                num = num / 10;

                rev = rev * 10 + r;


            if (rev == num1)


                text2.Text = "Palindrome numbers";




                text2.Text = "Not Palindrome numbers";






Step 4

Run the Palindrome app.
