  • Writing Behaviors for Silverlight 3

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 17, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    Shawn Wildermuth has published the two parts of his article on writing behaviors for Silverlight 3. In the first part he explains how to build a very simple behavior using the Behavior<T> class. In the second part of the series he shows off the TriggerAction<T> class that is supporting an Invoke method which is called once an event trigger happens.

    One of my favorite features of Silverlight 3 (and by extension Blend 3) is the new support for Behaviors. Behaviors are a way to allow designers to add functionality to XAML elements without code. In Blend 3, a couple of built-in behaviors are included (ShowMessageBox and ExecuteMethod). But of course I wanted to write my own behavior.

  • Expression Blend 3: Trying a Drag-and-Drop Behavior (Part 2)

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 13, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    In the second part of his series about Expression Blend 3 Mike Taulty is trying to connect his DraggableBehavior to his DropTrigger.

    Following on from this post, I wanted to try and connect my DraggableBehavior to my DropTrigger but I wasn’t quite sure how to make that work and so I just went for a pretty cheap-and-cheerful mechanism that’s a long way from perfect as it stands at the moment.

  • Expression Blend 3: More on Actions, Triggers, Behaviors

    Mike Taulty has a new post in which he discusses actions, triggers and behaviors.

    What’s a trigger? In the Framework, there look to be different kinds of Trigger – I tried to capture them all with this class diagram so I hope I didn’t miss any

    Mike Taulty has tried to build a drag-and-drop behaviour.

    I built a DraggableBehavior which is pretty similar to the one that’s found in the Sample Silverlight 3 Behaviors in the gallery. The difference between mine and that sample was that during a drag operation I don’t want the original UI to move.

    On the Silverlight SDK blog there is a sample that introduces each one of the 11 new easing functions and allows you to change their properties.

    Easing functions allow you to apply custom mathematical formulas to your animations. For example, you may want an object to realistically bounce or behave as though it were on a spring. You could use Key-Frame or even From/To/By animations to approximate these effects but it would take a significant amount of work and the animation would be less accurate than using a mathematical formula.

    Currently, there are 11 new easing functions that you can apply to your animations. You can apply these using Blend 3 beta or you can use XAML or procedural code.

  • Thinking Outside the XAP – Blend 3 and Support for Web Sites!

    Kirupa Chinnathambi has a post in which he describes the ability of Expression Blend 3 to create Silverlight projects that come associated with a Web site.

    In this brief post I will jump between describing why this is useful and how Blend provides access to it.
