    There is a great post written by Emiel Jongerius who describes a walk-through of the steps to perform in order to localize XAML files in Silverlight.

    This post is based on Silverlight 4, but all the steps do also apply to Silverlight 3. The full source code of the resulting project can be downloaded here. The language C# is used throughout this post, but the steps are easy translatable to VB.NET.

    Check out this step by step tutorial by Martin Krüger(SilverLaw) about how to make a ChildWindow rotate.

    This day I read a question at the Expression Blend and Scetchflow Forum about how to make a ChildWindow rotate. Interesting enough to build a quick and simple solution for that, including a rotation when the ChildWindow opens. So here it is. You can view an example and download the sourcecode of a sample application at the Expression Gallery. The Sourcecode is Silverlight 3, but the implementation for Silverlight 4 is similar.

    The following step by step tutorial builds a Silverlight 4 app.

    Vincent Leung has published a project demonstrating how to create a custom OOB window in Silverlight 4.

    The MainWindow control derives from UserControl and is meant to replace the default layout root. It provides the following features:

    • A title bar that users can drag to move the window. The title bar consumes out-of-browser configuration data for the icon and title text.
    • A default border that users can drag to resize the window. Hovering over the border changes the cursor as you would expect. A BorderBrush dependency property lets you customize the border background from the application layout root.
    • Isolated Storage support to store the window size, position, and state on application shutdown and retrieve the values on the next startup.

    By using Silverlight 4, Beau Brownlee has created his own TextBox with a watermark in it. 

    One of the things I needed recently is a simple way to have a textbox that had a watermark in it. Apparantly SilverLight 4 provides it,,, and it doesn’t provide it. Check this post out. I really couldn’t help but laugh when I saw this. ‘Do not use in a Silverlight 4 application.’ and at the same time the supported version is only Silverlight 4. Aaah yes, well the only other solution is to use a watermark textbox someone else has created or to make your own. I opted to make my own.

    Michael Scherotter announces that Ball Watch USA and Microsoft are teaming up to give you a reason to try the new Expression Studio 4. You should build one of the Ball watches in Silverlight 4 in order to win a real one!

    ImageRecreate one of the Ball watches in Silverlight 4 using the new Expression Studio 4 – entirely in vector graphics – no images or video.  The entries will be judged on visual accuracy, functional accuracy, and the innovative usage of Silverlight features.

    I wrote a tutorial about a general solution to make a regular Silverlight 3 and 4 ChildWindow rotate. Quite straight forward. Additionally to the sourcecode of the contribution at the Expression Gallery the tutorial describes a reliable technique how to add a rotation at the Open procedure of a ChildWindow - ChildWindow.Show() -. This technique gives the opportunity to add every animation of your choice to the open procedure of a ChildWindow and therefore provides a solution to in full customize the open procedure.

    Have fun!

    In this new video, Victor Gaudioso is demonstrating how to do Silverlight HitTesting.

    I was playing around and making a Silverlight game and I realized I needed to do hit detection, that is know when one object hit another. After some searching I came accross Andy Beaulieu’s blog where he writes about how to do it in a very effective way. I show how to implement Andy’s solution in this new video.

    Check out this great Windows Phone 7 tutorial of Jesse Liberty in which he discusses oData, lists and page animations.

    This is the fourth in a fast paced series on programming Windows Phone 7. In this mini-tutorial I will demonstrate how absurdly easy it is to create a master page with a list of data, and a details page to display more information about the selected item, and to animate the transition from one to the other. To make it more interesting, we’ll get the list and the details from a web service, using oData.

  • Q1 2010 SP2 (version 2010.1.603) of Telerik XAML controls is now live

    Nikolay Atanasov from Telerik announces the release of the latest Service Pack which now includes a lot of fixes and improvements in their XAML controls.

    With this release we uploaded the brand new WPF QSF, whose design is now analogical  to the RadControls for Silverlight online demos, thus once again demonstrating the code re-usability between the two suites.
