    In this blog post, Colin Eberhardt describes a simple method for automatically showing the full text as a tooltip whenever the text in a TextBlock is trimmed.

    The TextTrimming feature of SL4 allows us to worry a little less about the layout of our applications, giving the option to use fixed widths when rendering text. This can be particularly useful if you have to localize your application. However, arbitrarily trimming the text without providing the user with a mechanism to see the full text is not great for the user. A simple solution is to use a tooltip to present the full text.

    Today I had to get up far too early in order to catch an early morning flight to Copenhagen with a connection in Amsterdam. What to do for the six hours I would be travelling? Armed with a netbook and Visual Studio 2010 Express I thought it would be fun to have a go at developing a Silverlight gauge control. I know that there are already one or two free ones out there, with a decent looking one available on codeproject, however, it still felt like a good way to pass the time!
