Silverlight Tutorials



Introductory tutorial on building your very first Silverlight Application.



Taking a quick look at the StackPanel and using it to brainstorm an application to demonstrate control functionality.



Starting with File/New Project build a new Silverlight 2 Application using Visual Studio. Test out simple containers in the UserControl, then examine the files produced.



Starting a new series on Silverlight 2+. This first post is an introduction, explaining where to get the files, how to get started, where to find resources and blogs to read. If you want to start Silverlight 2 from the beginning, this is the place.



I've covered scrolling text twice before, but I have an idea of putting a Marquee on top of my content page to display up-coming events. Before I did it, I thought it was going to involve the interaction between a couple storyboards, but it ended up much less than that.



Tutorial 10 Covered Silverlight Dragging, but stopped short of dealing with Canvas.ZIndex and dealing with dragging objects off the canvas. Tutorial 11 deals with both of those situations.



Dragging objects in a Silverlight Canvas has been done multiple times, but I still see questions in the forums. I've tried to approach the subject from a very simple aspect and not cloud it with extra information or details



As I was playing with the Radial Gradient in Tutorial 08, I saw something I wanted to investigate further, and while I was at it, I figured it would make a good tutorial in it''s own right



Tutorial 08 is the first of 2 parts dealing with Gradients. Both types of gradients are introduced, and some slight run-time modification is demonstrated.



Tutorial 07 looks identical to Tutorial 06 when running. Deceptive in it's simplicity, Interactive animation is easy to implement.



This Tutorial is an introduction to Silverlight Animation... emphasis on the word introduction. Because there are two major types of animation in Silverlight at the time of this writing, I'm going to mention them both here, and then talk about only one of them in the rest of this Tutorial. Tutorial 07 will then introduce you to the second type.



Tutorial 05 introduces the Ellipse and adds MouseEnter and MouseLeave events to our arsenal. I also demonstrate some interplay between Opacity and Visibility.



Tutorial 04 adds the Visibility Parameter to a TextBlock and gives our Java Script a little more work to do. I also FIll the Rectangle which resolves one problem and introduces yet another.



Tutorial 03 introduces the Rectangle object and fills in a bit more on the TextBlock. Add in a touch of Java Script and we've got things to talk about.



Continuing from where we left off in Tutorial 01, Tutorial 02 explains the meanings of the creation parameters and takes a quick swipe at TextBlock



Noting a lack of good basic Silverlight Beta 01 tutorials, I decided to jump in and start with this first in a series.
