    Here is the first article of Gill Cleeren's Silverlight Advent Calendar.
    While browsing through the new properties and types available in Silverlight, I came across this nice little new property on the TextBlock called TextTrimming. As the word says, it helps you with showing an ellipsis when the text is too wide for the TextBlock you want it to appear in. Let’s take a look at this property in action.

    Here is the video of Rob Relyea and Mike Shime on Adam Kinney's Continuum Show on Channel9.

    XAML in .NET 4 is much more than just a Reader and Writer and also is now being consumed by many technologies including Silverlight, WCF, WF and of course WPF. Rob Relyea and Mike Shim came by to talk about what's new in XAML for 2009 and beyond.

    Last Fall I started posting a rollup of interesting community happenings, content, samples and extensions popping up around Visual Studio LightSwitch. If you missed those rollups you can check them all out here: LightSwitch Community & Content Rollups. I know I’m a bit late with this one but I’ve been very busy lately. I bought a condo (yay!) and have been on the road for the last couple weeks. Anyways, here it is…

    Often we need to quickly animate something on the screen without initializing storyboards, animations, setting targets etc. Also sometimes we need to be able to change animation direction or target value. All this is about double animation. Suppose we need to move a scroll viewer vertical offset with some speed but depending on user actions we may change speed and even direction of scrolling. So I wrote a helper class named DoubleAnimationHelper.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterIn this article, Gergely Orosz is highlighting some key advantages of using MVVM in Silverlight projects and is outlining how structuring a project following the MVVM pattern helps code reuse when porting to Windows Phone.

    Source: DZone

    Using .NET is all about leveraging your code across platforms. That was true with previous versions of Windows Mobile OS and it's true in today's XAML-centric environment. But with Silverlight, a .NET developer must pay special attention to the separation of core logic and UI in order to reuse the most code. By organizing your app into the MVVM, or Model-View-Presenter (aka View-Model) pattern, you'll be able to reuse a surprising amount of code between your Web-based Silverlight apps and your Windows Phone 7 apps. This walkthrough will take a basic Silverlight app and demonstrate how to do just that.

    This post of Rudi Grobler is on fast application switching in Mango.

    Source: Rudi Grobler in the Cloud

    In mango, the deactivated and activated events still fire as “normal”, the only difference is that your application doesn’t get killed. All the threads and resources are stopped but the memory isn’t released! It’s still possible that the operating system can “decide” that it needs the memory and then the application gets tombstoned (as normal) but in most cases it will not get tombstoned. This will allow your application to quickly resume (aka fast switching).

    Yesterday Microsoft held a surprise press conference in LA when they unveiled the Microsoft Surface Tablet, a product that they have successfully managed to keep under-wraps for a couple of years (I created on online poll, and of the 74 respondents, only 25 guessed correctly).

    The new tablet comes in two flavours, both of which run Windows 8. The cheaper model, Surface RT, has an ARM processor and will only run newer Metro-style Windows 8 applications (Win8 has a rather strange split personality, it is almost two separate OSs in one), while the more expensive model, Surface Pro, is a bit bulkier and includes an Intel processor that will allow it to run both Metro and traditional desktop apps. Most significantly, the Surface Pro model will run all of your existing Windows software (Word, Excel, Visual Studio, PhotoShop, …)

    I spent the last two years building Silverlight and Windows Phone applications. Before that I created ASP.NET websites and web applications. It’s safe to say I have seen a *lot* of applications and enjoyed creating almost all of them. In my opinion using server side techniques to create HTML and serve it to the browser was the best option until a few years ago. This has all to do with the horrible cross browser compatibility of the nineties and zero’s. Silverlight was great in the way that it had one plugin for many browsers. Almost everything worked across browsers and OSses. After ten years of working mainly server side it was also an eye opener for me how powerful asynchronous rich internet applications in the browser are. So when Microsoft sidetracked Silverlight, I started looking for alternatives. Only to find my first love back: HTML and CSS! And it turned out the retarded cousin Javascript also made great progress. Not the language itself –which was always great– but how people use it.
