Delay's Blog is the blog of David Anson, a Microsoft developer who works with C#, XAML, HTML, and Azure.
A customer recently asked about an update to my HtmlTextBlock sample for the newly released Silverlight 2 Beta 2. (Background reading: HtmlTextBlock Announcement, Improvements, Beta 1 Update, Data Binding Support) I'd meant to eventually migrate my samples anyway, so HtmlTextBlock seemed like a great place to begin!
I've updated the HtmlTextBlock demonstration page and also the source code download, so you can try things out in your browser and/or download the code to see how it works!
As you might expect, migrating HtmlTextBlock to Beta 2 was fairly straightforward. The majority of the changes arose because it tries to be a TextBlock and some of the text properties shifted around. (Incidentally, I wouldn't expect most applications to bump into this at all.) I hope people find the new sample useful as they come up to speed on Silverlight 2 Beta 2!
