  • Two fixes for David Anson's Silverlight SplitButton/MenuButton implementation - and true WPF support

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jun 14, 2010 (1 week ago)
    After David Anson received some bug reports for his SplitButton/MenuButton code, he decided to revisits it.

    One of my ContextMenu test cases for the April '10 release of the Silverlight Toolkit (click here for the full write-up) was to implement a quick "split button" control for Silverlight using Button and ContextMenu. In that post, I cautioned that my goal at the time was to do some scenario testing, not to build the best SplitButton control ever. However, what I came up with seemed to work pretty well in practice and I figured folks could probably use the code mostly as-is.

    And it seems like they did - because I got two bug reports in that post's comments section! :)

    Phil Middlemiss has published part 7 of his series on building a Silverlight theme for use in Blend 3.

    ImageThe first post in the theme can be found here. If you haven't done much styling of controls before then I recommend you start there since it introduces practices to keep your styles manageable.
    This far in the series, I'm focusing on specific parts of the more complex controls.
    In this post, we are branching out into the Silverlight Toolkit to style the Accordian control.

    If you have missed some of the previous parts, you can catch up here:
    Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6.

    In this post David Anson demonstrates how to display text labels on a NumericAxis with the help of the Charting controls that are part of the Silverlight Toolkit.

    A customer contacted me a few days ago asking how to display text labels on a NumericAxis. (Whereas CategoryAxis makes it easy to use text labels for the independent axis, this request was about text labels on the dependent axis.) It's a bit of an unusual request (I spent a minute just now and don't see how to accomplish this in Excel), but I knew it would be easy to do with the Charting controls in the Data Visualization assembly that's part of the Silverlight Toolkit and WPF Toolkit.

    In this tutorial, Laurent Duveau shows you how to theme your Silverlight application and to allow the user to switch themes dynamically.

    It’s been a while since Silverlight Toolkit has Theming support, but with the April 2010 version and the new features of Silverlight 4 it is now easier than ever to apply those themes.

    What you need to know:

    • ImplicitStyleManager was removed from the Toolkit, this is because implicit styles are now supported in Silverlight 4.
    • The Toolkit has now a Theme control to apply Themes on your pages.
    • Also a ContextMenuService and ContextMenu control that can allow the user to switch Themes at runtime in this scenario.

    Jeff Wilcox has published the updated quasi-official unit test framework bits for Silverlight 3 and Windows Phone developers.

    This brings the new features from the Silverlight 4 version to developers who have a business reason to continue with Silverlight 3 development for the time being:

    • Updated user interface
    • Integrated “tag expression” support for selecting subsets of tests to run
    • Performance improvements
    • Removal of dependencies on XLinq and System.Windows.Browser assemblies

    Take a look at this article in which Suprotim Agarwal explains about the ability to right click an element and invoke a custom ContextMenu in Silverlight 4.

    Silverlight 4 now adds support for MouseRightButtonDown and the MouseRightButtonUp events on all UIElements. The Silverlight Toolkit (April Release) also introduces the ContextMenu control to Silverlight developers. In this article, we will see how to

    •             Use the ContextMenu control released in the Silverlight 4 Toolkit
    •     Display the ContextMenu on a TextBox by using the new Right-Click mouse event support in Silverlight 4
    •    Access the clipboard programmatically (new in Silverlight 4) to do Cut, Copy and Paste operations on a TextBox

  • Simple Silverlight 4 Example Using oData and RX Extensions

    This is the second part of a tutorial in which Michael Washington demonstrates how OData works. This time he makes a simple Silverlight application that talks to an oData service.

    Note, for this tutorial, you will also need to download and install RX Extensions from:, and the Silverlight Toolkit from:

    As with the last tutorial, we will not use a database, just a simple collection that we are creating programmatically. This will allow you to see just the oData parts.

    For those of you who missed the first part you can catch up here.

    In this post, Kunal Chowdhury talks about the Silverlight BusyIndicator for those of you who want to know something more about it.

    So, What is this Busy Indicator? Busy indicator is a tool which you can add in your Silverlight application to show a loading indication to your user while saving some sort of operation in database. Generally it is useful when you calling your WCF Service to store something in server or retrieving some data from server.

    In this very detailed post, Kunal Chowdhury talks about drag-and-drop within and between ListBox controls.

    In this article, I am going to discuss with you regarding the Drag and Drop functionality inside a Silverlight ListBox control. This article will also cover the Drag and Drop operation between two ListBox control. We will use here the Silvelright 4 Toolkit to implement the feature. 

  • Using Silverlight 4 features to create a Zune-like context menu

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 17, 2010 (1 month ago)
    In this post Jeff Wilcox creates a Zune style context menu by using some new Silverlight 4 features.

    Trying to create a modern, clean and crisp user interface is a challenge – and it’s something that Zune has done rather well in both their software and hardware experiences.

    I took a few minutes to experiment with new Silverlight 4 features, including the new Silverlight Toolkit (April 2010 release) that includes a context menu control, to re-style/re-template the menu to look similar to a few other menus.
