The other weekend, I got some spare time to see how I could go in re-creating the sidebar experience that will ship with Window Vista on XP. I was amazed at how far I could get using Expression Interactive Designer. Here is the current status of my effort:
I only wish I could show some off some of the transition effects – in this case, a picture is not speaking the 1000 words they say it does. At some point in the near future (once an appropriate version of WinFX run-time ships) , I will post the source code for this project on CodePlex. If you download the code, you will be held responsible for contributing a gadget of your choice to this project J.
Not bad for a weekend’s worth of work ah?
Note: Contrary to some of the e-mails I have recieved, this project has nothing to do with the Vista Gadgets. This is only an imitation of them created as a Windows Presentation Foundation application using the Expression tools. The main goal of this project was to see how the Expression tools would scale up to a more real-world application, and to understand some of the usability issues of the tool so we could fix them.
Thank you for sharing the project!
how can i find the source code...
i want to see the implementation.
Thanks i got it
So, why don't you just expand on google's skins and skills? its alot more well known and, no offence meant, but i don't really download from sites i don't trust. i think lots of people trust google and will look at that more. plus, it will give other people ideas... anyway i might not remember about this post, so if you get mad at me or something, then email: email@example.com
How would the Vista gadgets look like on XP?
