  • Import Art from Photoshop and Make into Silverlight Controls

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 02, 2010 (3 days ago)
    In this tutorial, Adam Kinney demonstrates how to take graphics created in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, import them into Expression Blend and then turn the visual assets into interactive Silverlight controls.

    Control templates in Silverlight are very powerful and customizable. Expression Blend makes the process of creating and editing templates much easier and the addition of the import from Adobe tools is the knockout punch. As you may have figured out by now, this process could only be made better by providing a two-way relationship between the asset design tool and Blend. The good news is this was demoed at MIX10 in the form of an FXG Import from Illustrator. Once this add-in is released we’ll be in even better shape as Silverlight UI designer and developers, and I’ll be making another tutorial.

    In the next part from the series, Phil Middlemiss demonstrates how he made the radio buttons he blogged about previously.

    These buttons have gone through many iterations and I’m still not sure I’m quite happy with them just yet, but I’ll cover them anyway since they introduce a few interesting attached properties.

    If you are not familiar with Phil's series, you better first read his introductory post.

    Take a look at this cool Expression Blend post of Phil Middlemiss on rounding off buttons.

    I have the following requirements for this radio button style:

    • It must be re-sizable
    • The rounded ends must stay perfect half circles in proportion to the height of the button
    • It must behave correctly in Blend
    • Optional Extra: It would be nice to not have to manually edit XAML in Blend

  • New MEF Video Player Controls (1st Draft – Article to follow…)

    Alan Beasley has published his first draft of producing the Video Player controls that will feature in Michael Washington’s new article.

    ImageThis design is obviously open to reworks, as I’m not sure about the volume control at present. Looks like a Ventilation grill!!! It is possibly all a bit over the top, but this is excise, so some room to go a bit nuts!!! 
    The colour scheme is all tied to a single colour resource for easy editing, although this does presently restrict me from setting different colours for the framework & infill elements.

    In this post coming from the team of the Expression Blend and Design blog, you can learn more about one of the new samples recently added in Blend 4 called MockupDemonstration. You can also find how to enable mockup controls for any SketchFlow project.

    In Expression Blend 4, one of the new samples we added is called MockupDemonstration. If you haven’t had a chance to use it yet, you can open MockupDemonstration from the Welcome screen, which is available when you first start Expression Blend or when you click Help and then click Welcome Screen. In the Welcome screen, click Samples, and then click MockupDemonstration.

  • Control to Control Binding in WPF/Silverlight

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 13, 2010 (1 month ago)
    Take a look at this quick post of Paul Sheriff in which he explains how to easily connect controls together using data binding in XAML.

    In the past if you had two controls that you needed to work together, you would have to write code. For example, if you want a label control to display any text a user typed into a text box you would write code to do that. If you want turn off a set of controls when a user checks a check box, you would also have to write code. However, with XAML, these operations become very easy to do.

    In this video, Adam Kinney explains what the PathListBox is and why it is so compelling. Then, he demonstrates several ways of using it in creative examples.

    The PathListBox is one of the newest features available in Expression Blend and Silverlight 4. It redefines how users look at lists of data as it breaks the mold of a list "box" and opens the possibilities to use any shape or path. Don't miss this episode and be sure to download Adam's sample code.
