I usually give kudos to a company or individual by saying if I'm going to say something bad when something bad happens, I should say something good when something good happens. Unfortunately, this is of the first variety... a bad experience with a cheap-o fan on a 3G video card in a $1K workstation.
Silverlight 2 Tooltips
Silverlight 2+ Tutorials
<SL2Tooltip Number="003" animationcount<"?" />
Fighting a problem I've had for quite a while with my home workstation, I crippled the Silverlight logo and only allow it to rotate twice per page refresh, and the problem seems to have cleared up. Read on to see what I'm talking about.
<SL2Tooltip Number="002" maxJsonLength="500" />
While not necessarily a Silverlight issue, since many of us are using WebServices to talk to our Silverlight, this might end up saving you a bit of debug time.
<SL2Tooltip Number="001" Text="TextDecoration" />
Looking at the vast array of parameters available on a Button, I focused in on TextDecoration and spent a few minutes figuring out what that was and was not.
<SilverlightTooltip Number="007" Text="Layout and Centering" />
When I layout a new Silverlight canvas, there''s a couple things I do to make that job a bit easier. I thought I''d share those, and possible they will benefit someone else as well :)
<SilverlightTooltip Number="006" Text="Outer Canvas Width and Height" />
The best way of figuring out a good tooltip is one that either saves me a bunch of time or comes to light after I waste a bunch of time trying to figure out what simple thing I'm missing. This one falls in the latter category :(
<SilverlightTooltip Number="005" Text="Install Issues" />
I''ve gotten some email about install issues. The forum is a great place to figure those out, but I've aggregated a few of the more popular links there for figuring out how to get Silverlight installed on your system
<SilverlightTooltip Number="004" Text="Visibility-Opacity" />
The Visibility/Opacity question seems to come up a lot, and they can be used somewhat interchangeablly if you are aware of the subtle differences in their use
<Silverlight Tooltip Number="003" Text="Tooltips" />
A suggestion for tooltip canvas handling to help ease the pain of continually manipulating values, or dealing with visibility issues.
<SilverlightTooltip Number="002" Text="Sender" />
A possibly obvious, but nevertheless useful method of retaining the mainCanvas object at canvas load time resolves two possible needs for it later.
<SilverlightTooltip Number="001" Text="StrokeThickness 1" />
This is the first of a series of more light-weight single-point articles I'm calling Silverlight Tooltips. This first one addresses the StrokeThickness 1 situation discussed previously here and in the forum
