This morning, my VP ScottGu published a blog about Silverlight 2. I haven't blog much, well one because I am not really allowed to reveal anything interesting and two, I have been totally swamped.
Anyways, from his blog and his demo, you can see a partial list of what controls we'll be delivering at MIX! I am currently working on a demo that is basically a Silverlight Control's version of this page: http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/samples/ build entirely in Silverlight.
Rich Controls: Silverlight 2 includes a rich set of built-in controls that developers and designers can use to quickly build applications. This upcoming Beta1 release includes core form controls (TextBox, CheckBox, RadioButton, etc), built-in layout management panels (StackPanel, Grid, Panel, etc), common functionality controls (Slider, ScrollViewer, Calendar, DatePicker, etc), and data manipulation controls (DataGrid, ListBox, etc). The built-in controls support a rich control templating model, which enables developers and designers to collaborate together to build highly polished solutions.
After MIX is annouced, I can go indepth into topics like:- Using Controls- Templating Controls- Databinding Controls...etc.
This is exciting... and I hope to see all of in at MIX!
