In Windows Phone OS 7.1, the ManipulationMode enumeration enables you to specify how most of the property updates and events associated with scrolling a ScrollViewer are handled. You can specify that the system will handle the manipulations or that you will handle the manipulations at the control level. In most cases, to ensure smooth scrolling, you should let the system handle the manipulations, which is the default behavior.
