Microsoft Silverlight 2 makes it easy to introduce a rich, new dimension to your web applications. Silverlight is a powerful tool, but you can get a lot out of it by building on what you already know. After you add a few new techniques to your toolbox, you'll be able to create eye-catching animations, slick visual transitions, friendlier user interfaces, and even rounded corners to your windows!

Hello! Silverlight 2 is a fast-paced, entertaining introduction to Silverlight. Authors Bill Reiss and Dave Campbell guide you hands-on from your first Hello World example through the techniques you'll use to add life to your web applications.

What's inside:

  • Use XAML to define the basic elements of a web application
  • Create engaging animations to catch and hold a user's attention
  • Handle and manage user input
  • Access and display data
  • Interact with the file system
  • And more
