Take a look at the samples and tutorials in Interactive Designer to get an idea of how you can create visually rich user-interface designs. The HyperBar sample demonstrates a hyperbolic bar of icon images. The bar is a Grid control whose columns are resized according to a hyperbolic-type function of the mouse pointer’s position.
When you move the mouse pointer over the row of icon images, the icons enlarge in response to the mouse pointer’s proximity. The HyperBar sample also shows creative uses of transparency and reflection effects.
