    Mike Snow will show how to create sprites from 3D models with a tool called SpriteWorks.

    I recently stumbled across a cool tool by EnvyGames that allows you to generate sprites from 3D Models and their animation files. This tool, called SpriteWorks, is ideal for creating high quality sprite animations and one that I’ll be adding to my arsenal of game development tools for Silverlight. Since Silverlight does not yet support 3D models, sprite animation is really the only way to go.

    In this post, Khawar Yunus discusses how to code for both Silverlight and WPF.

    Source: Simple-Talk

    Because Silverlight is a development of Windows Presentation Foundation, and the technologies are so interlinked, it would seem obvious that there would besuch a high degree of code compatibility that one could then develop an application for both platforms from a common code-base. Khawar describes how it can be done, and shows the results.

    In this step-by-step tutorial coming from the the Microsoft Expression blog is demonstrated how to insert a Silverlight video into a page.

    The Insert Silverlight video feature requires Microsoft Expression Encoder, which is installed with Microsoft Expression Web. Expression Encoder is used to encode video and to provide video skins. In addition to the streaming web playback format, Expression Encoder can encode in other formats, including H.264 and WMV for podcasts.

    Dennis Delimarsky explains how to work with the Maps application without actually having the app accessible in the main menu.

    Source: Den by default

    By default the Windows Phone emulator is pretty limited in terms of applications that are available out-of-the-box. In fact, Internet Explorer is the only application that is available – the rest are apps that are side-loaded.

    I already talked about a way to invoke the default YouTube application and about some other hidden call-related features. Today I found an interesting new access point that allows me to work with the Maps application without actually having the app accessible in the main menu.

    This is the third in a series of blog posts describing how to get started with Windows Phone 7 development. It is written based on my own experience getting started with Windows Phone 7 development.

    The previous entry, where I created a simple app for collecting feedback on how a presentation went is available here.

    In this post I want to talk about themes. Themes allow you to change the colors, fonts and styles of all the visual elements in the user interface. Now that our Address Book application is complete, we’re almost ready to get this in front of real users. But before we do, it would be really nice to apply a different look-and-feel to our application in order to make it stand out above the rest. Visual Studio LightSwitch comes with only one theme out of the box, but you can download more. In fact, there are all kinds of extensions you can download to enhance what LightSwitch can do out of the box, not just themes.

    OK, so the title is a little ambitious, but there is nothing wrong with setting yourself lofty aims! Because of the depth of this topic I have decided to split this tutorial up into a series of blog posts, each of which explore a different aspect of the binding framework.

    I don’t usually write tutorial blog posts and series, preferring instead to develop new controls or novel techniques. However, I really felt this subject needed an in-depth tutorial. Databinding is a fundamental part of the WPF, Silverlight and the Silverlight for Windows Phone 7 frameworks. It is a powerful concept that once mastered allows you to write concise and elegant code. Yet for all its power, it is a little complex and that is my reason for launching into this blog series.

    Scenario: “I want to build a Windows 8 Metro style application. Since my app is going to just perform CRUD operations, I want to use the OData service using json so that I have the least amount of ‘data across the wire’ possible.”

    DISCLAIMER: This a pretty hacky approach, but it works and is the only way I know of to do it. If you like it, use it. If not, wait until there’s an official sample in the SDK. You’ve been warned. I’m just a guy getting creative to solve a problem.

    I wrote about LayoutTransform back when I needed it for Windows 8 XAML development. I modified the existing Silverlight Toolkit code to work with Windows 8 and it was great. Now a lot of people are asking the same question over and over again on StackOverflow – where’s LayoutTransform in Windows Phone Toolkit?
    Here’s an example of that questions:
    And I’ve seen another 2-3 in the last 2-3 weeks.
    Well, I don’t know where it is, but I know what you can do to get it quickly [...]

    Today Walter Ferrari submitted the first part (out of two) of his article on Near Field Communication in Windows 8 and it's already available online at SilverlightShow Learn section:

    From the author:

    Near fied communication (NFC) is a breakthrough technology aimed at facilitating communication between two devices in close proximity, within a 4-cm distance. In Windows 8 the support for this technology has been included in a broader application scope that Microsoft named Near Field Proximity. This article will give you a general view of NFC explaining how Microsoft has reinterpreted it, and we will learn how to build an environment by using 2 virtual machines to test the classes contained in the namespace Windows.Networking.Proximity.
