    One of the main concepts, when you work over a complex (or not so) project, is “divide and conquer”. This is the need of splitting the whole project into small and reusable parts, called controls. Having lots of these smaller parts, you can easily manage them in a view (page, window, etc).

    People who have worked with WinForms and ASP.NET are already familiar with this idea. It is realized both in WPF and Silverlight as well. Each control has its own behavior and style. The look and feel of each control can be tweaked through styles or can be entirely redesigned through templates, and the behavior of controls can be modified through event handlers.

    1. Introduction

    Sometimes creating user interface for Silverlight application can be tricky. The reason – the different users may have different screens, resolutions, some of them may have installed multiple toolbars in their browser (that will cause less space for our Silverlight application), or maybe some of them don’t like maximized windows. The purpose of that article is to show you how to create a Silverlight custom control, which will allow you to create applications with dynamic layout, that are easy for use on any screen and will use the screen area in the most optimal way. You can see the demo here.
