    Max Paulousky has added some new options and features to his Xaps Minifier.

    Source: Silverlight Driven Blogging

    Almost two months has come since the previous release of Xaps Minifier (see part 1 and part 2). This add-on has been downloaded from the Visual Studio Gallery site more than 450 times and I am sure it is pretty successful. I have some ideas and time to implement them has come.

    First of all, I want to add ability to avoid adding references to startup projects. Some professionals claim it’s essential to have a tiny startup project to avoid disappointing users. I do agree and I must implement an option to protect startup project from adding new assemblies into it.

  • XAPs Minifier. Avoiding Problem With Multiple Startup Objects

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 05, 2010 (2 months ago)
    Max Paulousky decided to add additional check into his XAPs Minifier to find out whether application has particular startup objects or not. 

    As mentioned in my previous post, the add-on can generate error if it finds more than one Startup Objects in a solution. Usually, it happens when developers add new Xap file via adding new Silverlight project (File-New-Project-Silverlight Application). They delete App.xaml file but do not clear Startup Object in the project properties and it is not cleared automatically.

    Jesse Liberty has a mini-tutorial called “Drag and Drop with Managed Code”. Here Jesse shares his experience with doing drag and drop in Silverlight. In the comments after the post people complain that there is no clickable demo and source code in the tutorial, but in spite of that this is still a good example.

    Nigel Sampson has the continuation of his post “Beginning a Silverlight Animation framework”. He is now ready with the second part – “Silverlight Animation Part 2: Size”. Here he extends his animation system to be able to animate an elements size. You can see the end result of his posts at Silverlight Animation Examples.

    Adam Kinney has an announcement – “COLOURLovers offers palettes in Expression Design, WPF and Silverlight format”. The great news is that the popular site COLOURlovers has just become even more useful, by now making palettes available for download as a Swatch Library for Expression Design, a ResourceDictionary for WPF and Brushes for Silverlight.

    Bart Czernicki has published the third part of his articles called “Silverlight 3 - What we Know So Far & What We Can Predict”. This time he talks about Silverlight 3 Integration with the Microsoft OS and Platform Stack. Bart is going to take a look at the upcoming Silverlight 3 platform stack and how it will evolve to push Silverlight as the leading RIA for business applications.

    Jeff Wilcox has a post named “MergeDefaultStyles build task improves control development (w/source)”. According to Jeff his post will help you to improve the development process for controls by letting you separate out the actual styles, so you don’t spend so much time worrying about merge conflicts and diffs.
