    In this post, Antoni Dol experiments with a button to demonstrate how FocusVisualElement can be used. 

    ImageThe FocusVisualElement is the equivalent of the dotted line that you see in Windows interfaces and on browser pages around an object on the page that “has the focus”. This means that it will receive the input a user is giving with a mouse, keyboard or touch. Actually, web designers don’t really like these dotted lines, because they degrade the look of their interface. It may disturb the carefully crafted look and feel of the page. But this FocusVisualElement has a function.

    This post of Antoni Dol is dedicated to QuoteFloat - an animation for TextBlock elements, inspired by the way the HTC Touch HD shows SMS Text messages.

    It moves the text up and rotates it at the same time resulting in a spiraling effect. It is done by giving the TextBlock elements a PlaneProjection each and animating the RotationY and GlobalOffsetY properties.

    The TextBlock elements are positioned below the bottom of the Canvas. The Canvas has a Clipping Mask so no one will see them until the animation starts.

  • The Silverlight PageCurl implementation

    In this post Antoni Dol discusses how to make a Page Curl effect in Silverlight.

    I started working on a Silverlight Page Curl when I encountered one on the internet and realized I had not seen it done in Silverlight yet. Read the manual to learn how to customize the Silvelight Page Curl using intialization parameters.

    A basic function is to use a small footprint for the plug-in and enlarging that to a new plug-in size. This way most of the original page can be used for content and links close to the plug-in can be clicked, while you can still show a good part of an image beneath the curl when the mouse cursor is hovered over the plug-in. The plug-in size has to be reduced again when the mouse cursor is outside the plug-in area.

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

    This Silverlight 2 development kick start helps you get over initial hurdles and clears the path for faster results.

    Coming from projects in which WPF design experience was established, the step to developing in Silverlight 2 was not an easy one. Even though I anticipated getting disappointed and even annoyed by times, there were several gotchas that baffled me. Some of those can still be found in the current Beta 2 release, but others are resolved to a degree that makes for a workable Silverlight 2 environment.
