    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.

    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 article, posted by Xianzhong Zhu, you will learn the common routine to write a custom Effect component supported since Microsoft Expression Blend 3 and use it in Silverlight 3 applications.

    Microsoft Expression Blend 3 has brought us two built-in Effect components, BlurEffect and DropdownEffect. Since descriptions of these two effects can be easily found in the Internet, we will not go into them. However, to achieve other more magic effects in your Silverlight game app, you will often fall back upon a third party to provide custom effects into the project, and then apply, in the same way as the method provided by Expression Blend 3, these effects to the objects in the artboard.

    In fact, as developers, we can create our own custom effects in tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio. This article will teach you how to, by creating a custom effect and apply it to a static image to show the typical programming process.

    Jeff Wilcox has published the updated quasi-official unit test framework bits for Silverlight 3 and Windows Phone developers.

    This brings the new features from the Silverlight 4 version to developers who have a business reason to continue with Silverlight 3 development for the time being:

    • Updated user interface
    • Integrated “tag expression” support for selecting subsets of tests to run
    • Performance improvements
    • Removal of dependencies on XLinq and System.Windows.Browser assemblies

    Here is part 2 of Xianzhong Zhu's article about the development of his FreeCell game. But first you may want to take a look at the previous part of the series.

    In this second part of the series, we will delve into the crucial part in the Freecell game. In detail, we are going to examine the two mouse events, i.e. MouseLeftButtonDown and MouseLeftButtonUp, related event handler programming.

    Xianzhong Zhu has posted the first part of his tutorial on building Freecell in Silverlight 3.

    In the two parts of series, we are going to develop another Silverlight 3 based Freecell game like the one shipped with Microsoft Windows. Our main purpose to write this game is to continue to explore the mouse related operations supported in Silverlight 3. And also, in constructing this application you will learn the Silverlight 3-supported behavior related topics.

    ShootHill are happy to launch this massive Silverlight Deepzoom art for Fauna & Flora International.

    Fauna & Flora International (FFI), founded in 1903, was the world's first international conservation organisation. Expanding beyond its African origins, FFI succeeded in giving conservation a voice on the international stage and drawing worldwide attention to the plight of rare and endangered species and habitats.

    In this article for the Visual Studio magazine Kathleen Dollard discusses how to store history information for the user on the local client PC in a sandboxed Silverlight 3 application.

    Q: I'm writing a Silverlight 3 application to run in the sandbox. Can I store history information for the user on their local machine or do I need to pass this information back to the server for storage?

    A: I'll show you how to store information on the user's local machine, but first let me warn you of the possible pitfall.

    This article of SilverLaw describes how to get the actual position of a regular Silverlight 3 ChildWindow at runtime.

    To reposition a ChildWindow at runtime a user does a left click on the title bar of the childwindow, drags the childwindow, moves it around and drops it at it's new position. When the user drops the ChildWindow he releases the mouse button and a MouseLeftButtonUpEvent fires. This event is fired by the Chrome, which is a ChildWinow Control Template Part.

    If you are worried that your Silverlight 3 application might not work with Silverlight 4, read this blog post of Tim Heuer.

    Okay, scenario 1 is I have a Silverlight 3 application (XAP), will that still work as-is in Silverlight 4?

    Yes, this is the situation we refer to as backward compatibility.  What this means is that existing compiled XAPs under previous versions should continue to work as-is even if your users have a later version of Silverlight installed on their machine.
