  • Blog Post: Silverlight Splash Screen In Action

    No, this is not “just another” article about implementing Splash Screens in Silverlight :) Sure, I’ll briefly present the procedure, but what I really want to show is how easily we can assess, in our development machines, the splash screen the end user will experience. Default...
  • Blog Post: Air Draw

    One of the long waited features of Silverlight was Web Camera and Microphone support. This feature was welcomed with great enthusiasm and passion when Silverlight 4 Beta was unveiled at the Professional Developer's Conference (PDC) last November. This is just one of the many new features SL4 comes...
  • Blog Post: My First Silverlight Behavior

    Blend/Silverlight 3 introduces a new powerful feature – Behaviors. Behaviors allow designers to take advantage of new levels of interactivity declaratively, without writing code.

Well, as you surely already know by now, with Silverlight 3 you’ll be able to apply 3-D projections to any Silverlight UIElement using "perspective...

    Yesterday I made a presentation entitled “Best Practices in Silverlight 2 (Intro)” where I showed several small samples to illustrate the concepts I wished to expose. Some listeners asked me about the samples source code and I agreed to publish it. You can find it on this post. Please...
  • Blog Post: Silverlight and "Cover Flow" – Part II

    In my last post I talked about the difficulty of implementing a “vanishing point” perspective effect with Silverlight since (currently) it only supports 2D affine transforms . As a result, most of “Cover Flow” implementations with Silverlight “avoided” perspective. However, my belief is that if we do...
  • Blog Post: Silverlight and "Cover Flow" – Part I

    The "Cover Flow" graphical user interface gained high popularity since iTunes adopted it in 2006.

Cover Flow interface - Image from...

    Do you remember Silverlight 1.0 Page Turn Sample ? I Do. It was probably the first Silverlight application I saw and I was delighted with it. Then Silverlight 1.1 came up, followed by 2.0 Beta 1 and Beta 2 (soon we'll have RTM) , Beta 2 and now 2.0 and this demo got behind. Wouldn't it be great...
