    Phil Middlemiss describes a behavior he has written that allows you to create an Opacity Mask that can be animated.

    Masking with a behavior
    An Opacity Mask "layer" allows for animation, so you can do things like a moving spot light revealing parts of an image, or have a foggy border animating around something.

    This is a Behavior I've written that lets you turn a FrameworkElement into an opacity mask for it's parent container.

    In this post, Gavin Wignall demostrates how by using both Projection properties and the InkPresenter you can achieve a pretty interesting effect.

    In this example I have used the InkPresenter to capture the mouse and produce vector paths. I also have a basic interface to change the colour and path size. I then use that captured data to duplicate the vector path upon 16 faces each rotating around a common point using the Projection properties.

    In episode 4 of his Seeker series, Richard Waddell demonstrates how to add Dependency Properties to support animation.

    I made a lot of changes to The Seeker, but probably the most important technically is the addition of Dependency Properties and more specifically Dependency Properties to support Animation.

    In this tutorial Alex Knight explains the benefit of clipping paths and how to animate them.

    Animating clipping paths is a great technique to know, it allows you to show sections of an image without moving the whole image. To create a clipping path, place your image on the canvas, create the shape you want for the clipped area, select both objects and right click > Path > Create clipping path.

  • Overview of New Features in Expression Blend 3 + SketchFlow: Part II and Part III

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 13, 2009 (11 months ago)

    In the previous post, Kirupa Chinnathambi started glancing at the new features in Expression Blend 3 and SketchFlow. In part 2 he continues his overview of new features by looking at Data, Silverlight, TFS Support, Animation, and Text improvements. Part 3 wraps up the trilogy by looking at more features that fall under Workflow, Code Editing, and Extensibility.

    There is a large collection of improvements we made in Expression Blend 3 that can loosely be bucketed under a category called Workflow. Most of the items here are not new features necessarily. They are improvements we made to help make creating applications in Blend more efficient, and dare I say it, fun!

    Mike Snow has another tip for you in which he shows how to apply built in animation functions to your Silverlight controls using Animation Easing.

    The result is a variety of animation effects that make your controls move in a more realistic way. For example, you can add springiness to your controls, set how many times you want it to bounce when it hits a destination point, etc.

    Maurice de Beijer has made a good Silverlight tutorial in which he explains how to change the MouseOver effect on a Silverlight ListBox.

    One thing I occasionally have to do is  change the way a ListBox item behaves. For example the blue highlight effect when the mouse hovers over it. Changing the blue mouse over effect to something else, say the item growing slightly isn’t very hard using Blend. However I find the steps a little awkward so this post should help me remember them and I hope it helps someone else as well.

    1. Introduction

    In this article I will present you a game which I created on Silverlight. It is a very small and simple but extremely popular game – the n-puzzle game. The n-puzzle is known in various versions, including the 8 puzzle, the 15 puzzle, and with various names. It is a sliding puzzle that consists of a frame of numbered square tiles in random order with one tile missing. If the size is 3x3, the puzzle is called the 8-puzzle or 9-puzzle, and if 4x4, the puzzle is called 15-puzzle or 16-puzzle. The object of the puzzle is to place the tiles in order (shown on the next figure) by making sliding moves that use the empty space.

    If you are interested in more details about the history of the puzzle game, you can use the next link. But now let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into the world of Silverlight. The demo can also be found on a separate page.

    Jordan Knight has made a simple Ajax style loading animation in Silverlight and he has included live demo and sample code for the project.

    I had the need a while back for a spinny loading animation thingy - they seem to be the industry standard “ajaxy load” animation of choice, so I figured I would wack one in my Silverlight application.

    Are you a fan of Twitter? Personally I'm, but I'm also a fan of Silverlight. Twitter has a couple of Flash and HTML badges (a.k.a widgets) you can get and put on your blog to let your visitors know what you are up to in the moment. However, Twitter does not have a Silverlight widget. What negligence! :) If you are like me and want not a Flash, but a Silverlight widget on your blog go ahead and read on how you can build one by yourself or just copy the text below to use it.
