    Take a look at this Silverlight 4 tutorial written by Vibor Cipan about using PathListBox with Expression Blend 4.

    Sample Data has been available to us from Expression Blend 3, but now with Blend 4, Silverlight 4 and Expression Blend 4 SDK there is new control – PathListBox enabling you to create list box looking however you want them to look – not just rectangular. This allows you to create nice radial, spiral and many other types of layout.

    Adam Kinney blogged about the new tutorial series on the .toolbox site about PathListBox and Fluid UI.

    To go along with the Expression Studio 4 launch, the team has put together a new 5-day OnRamp training course. The course introduces the Expression Studio tools and is very useful as a first step into the wild world of Expression. The fifth day of the course leads you to the .toolbox site where more advanced courses and tutorials are provided.

    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 new video, Victor Gaudioso is demonstrating how to do Silverlight HitTesting.

    I was playing around and making a Silverlight game and I realized I needed to do hit detection, that is know when one object hit another. After some searching I came accross Andy Beaulieu’s blog where he writes about how to do it in a very effective way. I show how to implement Andy’s solution in this new video.

    Check out this great Windows Phone 7 tutorial of Jesse Liberty in which he discusses oData, lists and page animations.

    This is the fourth in a fast paced series on programming Windows Phone 7. In this mini-tutorial I will demonstrate how absurdly easy it is to create a master page with a list of data, and a details page to display more information about the selected item, and to animate the transition from one to the other. To make it more interesting, we’ll get the list and the details from a web service, using oData.

    In his latest video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso demonstrates how to add multiple bitmap effects to one object.

    In response to my Twitter buddy Funwithcoding I made this post: In Silverlight you can only add one BitmapEffect (Blur or DropShadow) to one object at a time. But these effects are passed down to their child objects (inheritance).  For that reason we can use a little trick and apply multiple effects to one object (or so it appears).

    Take a look at this article in which Kunal Chowdhury demonstrates a step-by-step tutorial on opening a Microsoft Excel book followed by data sharing between the Silverlight application and the Excel Sheet.

    Here we will use a DataGrid which will load some customer information. Then we will pass the data to the Excel Sheet and then we will modify the data in the external application (i.e. inside the Excel sheet). You will see that, the modified data will reflect automatically to the Silverlight Application.

    In his latest 10 minute video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso demonstrates how to put the slider position in the slider tooltip.

    Recently I was asked to make a ToolTip that now only followed the Thumb of the Slider but also showed the value of what the slider was (see image above).  I thought about this and I came up with a pretty quick solution.  There may be other ways to do it but watch the short 1o minute video to see how I did it.

    Xianzhong Zhu has posted the first part of his tutorial on building Freecell in Silverlight 3.

    In the two parts of series, we are going to develop another Silverlight 3 based Freecell game like the one shipped with Microsoft Windows. Our main purpose to write this game is to continue to explore the mouse related operations supported in Silverlight 3. And also, in constructing this application you will learn the Silverlight 3-supported behavior related topics.
