    Braulio Diez has posted a great SketchFlow Tutorial along with several useful videos on the same subject.

    Sketchflow is a great tool for prototyping, that’s great for designers, but… for developers? of course !!!
    In this article we are going to step through Sketchflow functionality from the point of view of a developer.
    To check how Sketchflow works we will:
    • Simulate the startup of simple project: a  local community web site, that will hold news / events / members plus and admin area.
    • Insert video snippets in between the article to show how to perform certain operations using Sketchflow

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on Twitter

    Loek van den Ouweland has created a UserControl with some rectangles to mimic a design grid for WP7.

    Source: Loek's Blog

    In an ASP.NET application I usually place an image of a grid on my canvas div to see if everything is positioned correctly in all browsers. In Silverlight this can be solved even more nicely.

    Tags:   Listbox , ComboBox
    Fons Sonnemans demonstrates a behavior that allows keyboard selection on a ListBox or ComboBox.

    Silverlight doesn't support keyboard selection on a ListBox or Combox. I have created a small Behavior which fixes this problem. You can attach the KeyboardSelectionBehavior to a ListBox or ComboBox using Microsoft Expression Blend. You drag it from the Assets and drop it on your ComboBox or ListBox. If you have a custom ItemTemplate you will have to set the SelectionMemberPath property.

     Google has just announced a new browser - Google Chrome. My first impression from Chrome is that it is blazing fast. First thing I tried, of course, is to check whether Silverlight is working. Well, it seems to render, but the interaction is horrible. Google Chrome is based on WebKit as well as Safari so I expected Silverlight to work properly. There is no info why Silverlight is not working, but I guess Microsoft will make it work with the final version (which is actually expected soon). 

    If you are curios about Google Chrome go download it. We will keep you up to date with the status of Silverlight and Chrome working together.


    Although, Flash seems to be working properly.

    This post is about one Silverlight based Facebook application called Picturize.me that you can use to revamp your new Facebook Profile look.

    Source: MicrosoftFeed

    Picturize.me - A Silverlight Based Facebook ApplicationHave you got the new Facebook layout yet, if you did? Don’t settle for an ordinary profile look. Revamp your new profile’s look using picturize.me

    Picturize.me is a Silverlight Based Facebook application developed by Monir Abu Hilal, inspired by the new profile look and the way ‘tagged’ pictures appear in it. What Picturize Me does is basically take one (or more) picture and split them between the profile picture and the pictures bar on the right so the overall look eventually is one big picture for the whole profile.

    Mads Laumann got this error in a Silverlight 4 project and after he googled it for some time without any luck, he decided to write a quick blog post just to help others which might have the same problem.

    Today I got this error “XAML Namespace http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008 is not resolved.” in a Silverlight 4 project. I happened right after I added some VisualStates in Blend 4. I could remove the VisualState XAML and everything would then build again fine. As meantioned I googled the error but couldn’t find a solution.
