    David Anson will explain to you how to implement the WeakEvent pattern on Silverlight with the WeakEventListener class.

    One of the nice things about developing on a platform that uses a garbage collecting memory manager (like Silverlight and WPF) is that the traditional concerns about memory leaks pretty much go away; most common types of memory leaks are impossible in a garbage collected environment. I say "most" and not "all" because there are still a few ways to leak memory - typically by creating a reference to an object and then "forgetting" about that reference. Sometimes this forgetfulness is simply an oversight on the part of the developer, but sometimes it is due to the reference being created in such a way that it's not obvious it even exists...

    Andrej Tozon will explain you how to make Silverlight Toolkit’s TreeView bindable two-way.

    One of the most common scenarios in LOB applications is a list control, displaying some sort of items, and clicking on an item provides the user with some details about selected item. This is called a Master-detail scenario. Take Microsoft Outlook, as a typical three level example [Folder-Mail-Content]. I’m going to implement this scenario with Silverlight Toolkit’s TreeView using the MVVM pattern.

    Michael S. Scherotter explains how to use Silverlight Toolkit WrapPanel in your Listbox.

    Michael: “One of the great components of the Silverlight Toolkit is a WrapPanel that “Positions child elements in sequential position from left to right, breaking content to the next line at the edge of the containing box.”  I wanted to see if I could adapt a Listbox to use the WrapPanel instead of its default vertical StackPanel.  It turns out that all I have to do is change the ItemsPanelTemplate to use the WrapPanel.”
