    In this new video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso explains how to create gradients in Expression Blend.

    In doing a lot of speaking engagements I get asked lots of Silverlight questions.  From these questions I have noticed a pattern emerging whereby many people have a terrible time working with gradients.  Of course the real trick, as is with anything, is practice but before one can start to practice they have to understand the tools of the trade.  So, in this short, 10 minute video I show you how to duplicate a somewhat complex gradient while along the way explaining the tools required to do the job; namely, the Gradient tool, the color palette and the Gradient Eyedropper tools.

    SilverLaw has created a Silverlight 3 behavior that provides resizing for a regular Silverlight 3 ChildWindow using mouse wheel scroll including Blend 3 design time support.

    Short description:  

    1. Import System.Windows.Interactivity.dll.

    2. Add a reference to the .dll in the download.

    3. Drag the behavior from the asset panel onto a ChildWindow.

    4. Set a fixed width and height to the ChildWindow. Set width and height of the Layoutroot to Auto.

    Alan Mendelevich reports a bug in both Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4 when drawing lines with odd coordinate values.

    Some pretty strange bug in amCharts has been reported to me. In one scenario user got 3 graph lines when zooming-in deeply on a single line graph.

    While investigating this bug I found out that previous data point in that scenario was far apart from the one in view and a line was drawn from that previous data point to the current one. The calculated X-coordinate of the previous data point was something around –89000 in my test case so I became curious if this a little crazy coordinate value could be the source of the problem.

    Victor Gaudioso has a new video tutorial demonstrates how to develop a Behavior that can be attached to objects in or out of Styles that allows you to specify what Method they need to fire.

    Recently I had a developer ask me how he could fire an event from the CheckBox that I had put in the Style of the UserControl I gave him. 

    I thought about it and, the problem is that objects in a Style are not really part of the Visual Tree until the Style is attached at runtime.

    This post of Charles Petzold will be very useful to those of you who are interested in Silverlight and 3D.

    In pretty much any graphics system, transforms constitute the most important feature that doesn’t actually draw anything. Instead, transforms alter the appearance of visual objects by modifying coordinates with mathematical formulas generally expressed as a matrix multiplication.

    Matthias Shapiro has published some Silverlight and WPF XAML files for a couple of US maps.  
    In the comments of my Silverlight unemployment visualization, someone asked about where I got the US outline. I got it from theWikiCommons website which has an SVG (scalable vector graphics) version that I pulled into Adobe Illustrator and then exported as a XAML file using Mike Swanson’s Illustrator-to-XAML plugin. I realized this might not be possible for many people who don’t own Adobe Illustrator, so I did it myself for several files that are now available for download as XAML vector graphics maps of the US.

    Shane Morris has a great tutorial in which he dives deeper into Expression Blend and explains how to take your portfolio prototype into production by using Microsoft Silverlight.

    We’ll cover navigation, layout, and sample data—all without writing a line of code! Pay attention because there’s a quiz at the end to test what you’ve learned!

    In this article written for the Visual Studio Magazine, Kathleen Dollard shows how to display a list of complex bound criteria, including data, child data and photos for each item, in Silverlight.

    Q: In Silverlight I want to display a list of complex bound criteria, which includes data, child data and photos for each item. The requirement is for the list to be displayed horizontally with only one item displayed at a time. Is this possible?

    A: There are at least two approaches to solving this: a ListBox and a DataForm. In Silverlight 3, I wasn't able to scroll the ListBox incrementally, resulting in partially displayed items. In some cases this might be desirable, but the DataForm offers a clean incremental scroll. Figure 1 shows the DataForm solution. Both approaches use a DataTemplate that allows reuse of control layouts.

  • Digital Jugendstil TextEffect (Art Nouveau) - Silverlight 3

    SilverLaw has posted this nice Tag cloud example and a UserControl called Art Nouveau.

    This example is the result on making heavy experimental use of effects on a Textblock element. It has a visual appearance that reminds me of Jugendstil (Art Nouveau). Therefore I called it "Digital Jugendstil".

  • A One-stop Shopping XAML Namespace for Silverlight Client SDK Controls

    Wolf Schmidt has dedicated this post to one feature added to Silverlight 4 RC that hasn't garnered much attention so far - the sdk: XAML namespace prefix.

    This prefix provides a common URI-based XAML namespace that ALL of the most commonly used client SDK controls can share.

    Let's have a look at how this worked before, in Silverlight 3 (and in the Silverlight 4 beta, for that matter).
