This is the seventh of 8 videos by Ken Cox about the development of CRUD application using Silverlight and Visual Basic.NET.

Episode 7 of my series on creating a Silverlight 2 data form concentrates on adding visual appeal.
You implement rounded borders, gradient effects, and import professional styles from the Silverlight Control Toolkit. You also learn how to use the AutoCompleteBox control to prompt users for data input.

Make sure you've worked through Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5 and Episode 6 first.

The full source code is available for download from here.
