    There is a new series of tutorials which introduces the PathListBox control and explores different techniques using path layout. The first article is an introduction to the PathListBox.

    The PathListBox is a new control included in the Expression Blend 4 SDK that builds on the original functionality of the ListBox, displaying multiple items and item selection, and new functionality enabling path-based layout. The PathListBox provides many areas of customization through properties and a custom child container control, the PathListBoxItem.

    Here you can find more tutorials from the series:
    • Using multiple paths with the PathListBox
    • A look at the PathListBoxItem control
    • Creating a motion path with the PathListBox
    • Text on a Path with the PathListBox
    • Creating a carousel with the PathListBox

    In this post, Fons Sonnemans demonstrates how to implement touch gestures for WP7 using triggers.

    The Windows Phone 7 supports single and multi touch gestures. I have implemented the Tap, Double Tap and the Touch&Hold gestures using Triggers. You can use them to trigger an Action in Expression Blend.

    You first have to reference the GestureTriggersLibrary. Then you add an Action to a control using the Behavior assets. Finally you change the TriggerType using the New button.

    By using the new PathListBox control in Blend 4 and the Path class in Silverlight 4, Fons Sonnemans has created this SpiralText sample.

    Blend 4.0 includes a new PathListBox control. In Silverlight 4 you can create your own shapes by deriving from the Path class. I have used these two techniques to create this SpiralText sample.

    The Spiral class uses ArcSegment objects to create a spiral illusion. It isn't a perfect spiral but it is good enough for me.

    In this post, Michael Washington talks about a tool called DataStore provided by Microsoft Expression Blend 4 and in order to demonstrate it he makes a number guessing program with no code.

    It is a very powerful tool for Designers to create functionality in Expression Blend without writing any code. To demonstrate some of it's abilities, I created a number guessing program with no code.

  • Creating A Flexible Surface Effect - Silverlight 4 (Part 1)

    0 comments  /  posted by  LawBot  on  May 27, 2010 (2 weeks ago)
    In this blog article SilverLaw describes step by step how to create a Flexible Surface Effect in Silverlight 4 using Expression Blend 4 RC. 
    This effect allows a user to click on the UI as if he taps with his finger on surface water. Since there is a RippleEffect for Silverlight 4 the implementation is quite straightforward. And the result is pretty scalable.
    This article belongs to a corresponding contribution at the Expression Gallery which provides an example including sourcecode.

    Davide Zordan has another great multi-touch post in which he talks about this approach which is now available in WPF using Expression Blend 4 RC and the TranslateZoomRotateBehavior.

    I’ve already blogged about adding multi-touch support to Silverlight applications using Blend behaviors (you can also read my italian language article).

    This is a powerful and simple approach which is now available in WPF using Expression Blend 4 RC and the TranslateZoomRotateBehavior.
