    Douglas Starnes posted about one pretty interesting UX pattern that was a visual combination of search and autosuggest which he was building in Silverlight. Douglas also has a second post in which he demonstrates the jQuery version.

    ImageI have been working on a UX pattern that discovered a while back. I am not the first person to do this but I have never seen an implementation in Silverlight before so I decided to give it a try. 

    The idea is this: The user is presented with a set of images and a text box.  Each image is tagged with a number of keywords.  As the user types a search term, images whose tags are not related to the search terms are faded out.  In this way it is a combination of search and autosuggest.

    In this post, Douglas Starnes tries to convince you that Blend is not only for designers and that developers can and should learn how to use it too.

    To create a Silverlight application, there are two tools available for use, Visual Studio and Expression Blend.  Visual Studio is considered to be the tool for developers while Blend is suggested to be a designer oriented application.  I disagree.  I think that developers can (and should) learn how to use Blend.  It’s easy, fast and fun!

    I am going to walk through a very simple web browser simulator in this post.  The application is not the focus but instead the techniques used to create it.
