  • Hidden Object: Episode 6 – Create a CheckBox from an Image

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Oct 05, 2009 (8 months ago)

    In this episode, Mark Tucker demonstrates making a checkbox control out of an image.

    In our last official episode, we added the MagnifierOverBehavior, but now the magnifier is on all the time. To allow the player to turn it on or off, we will create a CheckBox control from an image of a magnifying glass. Creating controls from objects on the artboard is really powerful.

    Check out the other parts of the Creating a Hidden Object Game in Silverlight 3 series.

    If you want to create a list of checkable items, this tutorial written by Matthias Shapiro will let you do it without any code.

    First, you should know right off the bat that this tutorial is for Silverlight 3 only. It uses a data binding functionality called RelativeSource binding that isn’t available in earlier versions of Silverlight.

  • Control Visibility with Triggers

    In this post Joel Neubeck shows two custom TargetedTriggerAction’s which allow a developer to easily tie a UIElement’s visibility to an action made on another control.

    This first trigger I very simple.  I wanted the ability to tie a checkbox to the visibility of another UIElement.  Since a checkbox derives from ToggleButton we can get creative and write a single trigger that will work with either a CheckBox, RadioButton or ToggleButton.

    Button controls are Silverlight controls which in the common scenario respond in some way to the user who is clicking on them. There are a lot of button controls: Button, HyperlinkButton, RepeatButton, ToggleButton, CheckBox, RadioButton.

    Four button controls derive from the base ButtonBase class: Button, HyperlinkButton, RepeatButton, and ToggleButton. The ToggleButton is a base class for the CheckBox and RadioButton controls but it can also be used as a standalone control. There are two descendants of the Button class named CalendarButton and CalendarDayButton.

    The most important member of the ButtonBase class is the Click event. It occurs when a user clicks on the button control. For example:
