    Andy Beaulieu has posted slides, demos and links from a discussion with his participation at the CNY .NET Developer Group.

    We had a great turnout and discussed using Expression Blend to Draw, Animate, and Style a Silverlight application.

    Nikhil Kothari has made an overview of some layout panels in Silverlight.

    The layout system in Silverlight is, in my opinion, one of the key differentiators in presentation engine capabilities from HTML/CSS (on a related note, see my post long ago about my browser/scripting wish list and the references to need for core layout primitives).

    Andy Beaulieu will explain you how to use TransformToVisual for custom XAML animation.

    I recently had the need to dynamically draw a shape in XAML from a specific X,Y offset within another control. This is straightforward... unless the control is Rotated, Scaled, or otherwise transformed. Since the original X,Y position is no longer in the same spot after a transform, we need to use some method to calculate the new X,Y position within the control.

    Terence Tsang has a new Silverlight vs. Flash post in which he is showing a really nice Matrix text effect.

    It has been a long time that I didn’t implement text effect comparison. Text Rendering is a very interest topic when comparing Flash and Silverlight. It’s because they have different rendering system which result in a dramatic differences on performance and readability.

    Page Brooks will show you within only a few lines of code how to make your own custom loading screens in Silverlight.

    About 99% of the time, when I watch a Silverlight application load, I see the standard loading animation.  I’ve seen some really cool Silverlight applications with a highly polished user experience and yet, they don’t spend an extra 10 minutes to make the loading experience decent.  This is very surprising to me because it is so very easy to make your own custom splash screen that blends much better than the standard splash.

  • Putting the Silverlight Layout System to Work

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Feb 17, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    In his previous blog entry Jesse Liberty described the fundamentals of the Silverlight Layout System (SLS). This time he will put the Silverlight Layout System to work.

    Today, I'd like to build a simplified version of the custom Carousel control that I create in greater detail in a forthcoming video, and examine the role of the SLS in laying out and animating the objects in the Carousel.

    Shawn Wildermuth has a post in which he talks about FrameRateCounter and RedrawRegions to help you tweak your applications.

    When you start creating Silverlight applications with some level of animation you can get yourself into a situation where performance issues are hard to track down. There are a couple of not well known flags in the Silverlight plugin that you can use to help debug them.

    Note: This article is submitted by Gozzo Smith for Silverlight: Write and Win contest.Thanks a lot, Gozzo! Hello All, Please drop a comment if you like it.

    1. Introduction

    Animations allow you to create truly dynamic user interface. They are a core part of the Silverlight/WPF model. The most natural way to create them is to create them declaratively (in the XAML), configure them, and put them into action without writing a single line of C# code or using timers. At first glance, I thought that the property-focused nature of Silverlight animations seems terrible limiting. However, in the process of work I found out that it’s surprisingly capable.
