A carousel control in Silverlight 2...

Check it out here...  Source is here!


It is very little code so I did not do a write-up. The code does have comments.
Ideas? or  Improvements I considered but did not implement (yet )...

  • I debated using the animation system; generate ( n storyboards, where n = number of items ).. You can generate an animation that simulates points in a motion path..   this should smooth it out alot .. for the tiny sample I needed it felt like overhead; also I wanted to use DispatchTimer (the manual animation) as a reference.
  • It assumes that items in the panel don't have a transform applied..  [easy to check and multiply transform if needed]

Credits:  Every thing I know about carousel came from a Lee brimelow's flash carousel tutorial.   

Bugs/feedback, leave comments or email.
