    In his next Blend post, Mike Taulty describes states, groups and transitions.

    One of the most powerful ideas in Silverlight UI development is the idea that interfaces and controls within them present altered UI depending on what combination of states are currently active.

    Expression Blend 4 comes with some pretty cool pre-built VisualState transition-animations called TransitionEffects. A TransitionEffect is a pixel-based transition from one state to another, in other words it’s a PixelShader that has an animatable Progress property. These effects can be used in various scenarios, they are very developer/designer friendly, and they are an easy way to make your Silverlight application more attractive.

    In this article I will show you two situations to use Blend 4’s built-in TransitionEffects:

    - Navigating between pages in Navigation Framework and

    - switching between Views in an MVVM (Light Toolkit) scenario.

  • Smooth Morphing with Transition Effects

    Kirupa Chinnathambi has posted a tutorial on using transition effects to achieve smooth morphing.

    Ever since wooly mammoths roamed the earth, you have had the ability to move between visual states. Not only could you move between states, you could do it in style by altering the duration and specifying an easing function.
    Starting with Expression Blend 4, the awesomeness of moving between states has been kicked up a few notches with the introduction of transition effects.

  • Custom Per-Page Transitions in Windows Phone 7

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jun 02, 2010 (4 months ago)
    Jeff Brand continues his previous explorations of the TransitioningContentControl and now takes a look at how to extend the TCC to allow transitions to be defined on a per-page basis.

    Put simply, we would like to be able to have a default transition for all pages, and then provide a list of custom transitions that will be used on a page-by-page basis.  You can also watch a screencast  making these changes.  Source is linked at the end of the article.

    Silverlight Dude decided to implement transitions similar to those which are part of the new PowerPoint 2010 by using Silverlight.

    I don’t know if you guys had a chance to look at the new transitions as part of the PowerPoint 2010.  I seen them and they are great.  So i decided to implement similar transitions using silverlight.  These transition include both pixel shader transitions and animated transitions that mimic transitions in PowerPoint 2010.

    In the following tutorial Paul Yanez shows how to create your own custom button with images, gradients and transitions.

    1- import an image and place on the artboard
    2- add a rectangle with a radial gradient the same width and height as the image
    3- add a rectangle with no fill and grey color as the border
    4- select all 3 objects, right click and group into a canvas
    5- right click and select make into usercontrol
    6- select button as the type of usercontrol you want to create
    7- right click and select “edit template/edit current”

    8- select the states panel and go to the “mouseover” state and set the gradient’s opacity property to “0″ and change the stroke color of the rectangle from grey to white

    9- change the transition duration to 0.3 sec and set the transition to “cubic in”

  • Simplifying Page Transitions in Windows Phone 7 Silverlight Applications

    If you interested in developing with Silverlight on Windows Phone 7, you may want to read this post of Jeff Brand in which he explains how to add nice transitions between different pages of your application. 

    By default, Windows Phone page transitions really aren’t transitions at all.  The new PhoneNavigationPage is just popped into the root PhoneNavigationFrame.  Effective, yes. Cool, certainly not.  Face it, modern mobile applications need to not only be functional, but also stylish.  Simple “snap” transitions just don’t cut it.
