Quick note on WP7 Advertising platform

I didn’t really see this clearly documented anywhere, I was probably looking in the wrong place, but when you are testing WP7 advertising, use ApplicationId = “test_client” and AdUnitId=”TextAd” instead of your ‘real’ pubCenter adunit/application id’s.

Also, I seem to have to set the Width of the control to 478 instead of 480 to get the border to appear all the way around the control. I’m not sure why, but that’s the only way I can avoid getting the left or right border of the ad being chopped off.

<my1:AdControl ApplicationId=”test_client” AdUnitId=”TextAd” Height=”80″Width=”478″/>
