    Alex Knight has a great Expression Design tutorial about shadow breaker effect in XAML.

    I have always liked using half shadows to break up sections of websites but in order to bring it into my Silverlight designs I have had to create PNG’s and import them into my Silverlight projects. This way has been fine but if you could create the same effect using simple XAML you would be able to create a smaller (file size) and a lot more flexible!!!

    Alex Knight has a great tutorial up on simple Parent/Child navigation in Silverlight. 

    The best part about Silverlight is it provides heaps of great tools to use, so people like me who are completely graphically minded and a little bit developer stupid are still able to create sweet menus and the like.

    This blog will show a simple way to create a menu that has all the main categories visible and when clicked will show your child links for that category, and when clicked again will make them disappear.
