    In his latest video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso demonstrates how to add multiple bitmap effects to one object.

    In response to my Twitter buddy Funwithcoding I made this post: In Silverlight you can only add one BitmapEffect (Blur or DropShadow) to one object at a time. But these effects are passed down to their child objects (inheritance).  For that reason we can use a little trick and apply multiple effects to one object (or so it appears).

    Take a look at this article in which Kunal Chowdhury demonstrates a step-by-step tutorial on opening a Microsoft Excel book followed by data sharing between the Silverlight application and the Excel Sheet.

    Here we will use a DataGrid which will load some customer information. Then we will pass the data to the Excel Sheet and then we will modify the data in the external application (i.e. inside the Excel sheet). You will see that, the modified data will reflect automatically to the Silverlight Application.

    Michael Washington has published this simple Silverlight 4 example using OData Paging and RX Extensions.

    This article picks up from where the Simple Silverlight 4 Example Using oData and RX Extensions ends. This article implements paging. It also showcases some fancy RX Extensions code created by Dave Sexton ( However, it is a bit ironic that Dave Sexton was not that happy with the code (even though I felt it was so perfect it was suitable for framing).

    In this post Matthias Shapiro discusses the ability to use the StringFormat feature when binding in Silverlight 4.

    Previously, if I wanted to have a piece of text that said “Your name is [username]” I could either use the old Horizontal-Stack-Panel-And-2-TextBlocks trick or write a value converter (not going to be seen below because there’s a great example of it over here. Incidentally, that example is totally irrelevant if you’re going to use StringFormat, but more on that in a second).

    The StringFormat option in Silverlight 4 allows you put all that information into a single field, which is extremely useful not only for TextBlocks, but for Content fields in a Button. In fact, let’s use that as an example.

    John Papa announces that the Silverlight Training Kit has been updated with some new content and fixes.

    We have had a good response to the free 8 module Silverlight Training Kit we released on Channel 9 back at MIX and that Scott Guthrie announced. We have since updated at the Silverlight 4 Launch with some new content and fixes. We’ve also found 2 issues since then that you might run across. I’ve corrected these in the source and will update them on the Channel 9 site in our next round (which I hope to include VB version of the courseware, too!)

    He shows off some really cool samples, all of which you can download and do yourself through hands on-labs. Arturo walks through the .toolbox site and shows the numerous learning materials, videos, demos, and hands-on labs. If you have been looking for a comprehensive set of self-paced learning materials focused on designing  with Expression Blend, you should definitely watch this video and check out .toolbox.

  • Creating A Flexible Surface Effect - Silverlight 4 (Part 1)

    0 comments  /  posted by  LawBot  on  May 27, 2010 (1 month ago)
    In this blog article SilverLaw describes step by step how to create a Flexible Surface Effect in Silverlight 4 using Expression Blend 4 RC. 
    This effect allows a user to click on the UI as if he taps with his finger on surface water. Since there is a RippleEffect for Silverlight 4 the implementation is quite straightforward. And the result is pretty scalable.
    This article belongs to a corresponding contribution at the Expression Gallery which provides an example including sourcecode.

    In this article, Kunal Chowdhury discusses in details the command binding feature in Silverlight 4.

    Silverlight 4 now came up with the support of Command Binding. Using Command Binding you can easily develop your Silverlight MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) applications where your view will not know about the data i.e. a full separation of the view from the model. In this article I will describe you how to implement the command binding to load some informations & display it to the UI.
