Accelerometer Input on Windows Phone

Monkey Targets Forums/XNA/Accelerometer Input on Windows Phone

Amnesia(Posted 2011) [#1]
Hello, I'm trying to compile a small project which uses AccelY() for input but fails to compile for WP7.

The output is as follows:
Error 1 'gxtkInput' does not contain a definition for 'AccelY' and no extension method 'AccelY' accepting a first argument of type 'gxtkInput' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

So I basically have three questions:
1.- Am I the only one getting this?
2.- If not, is the issue currently being addressed?
3.- Any known way to solve it?

1. No
I'm getting this too.
No Accelerometer supported under xna?

I know this is a very old topic but the issue was not solved yet.

Is there any plans to add accelerometer support to xna in the near future?

I am now trying to add accelerometer support to the generated solution. In order to take advantage of the accelerometer you need to use this refrence:

using Microsoft.Devices.Sensors;

However, this gives me the following error:

The type or namespace name 'Devices' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

Does anyone know what am I doing wrong?
