new Nibbles: Blend & WPF
July 23, 2007, 8:51 am
Filed under: WPF

The session Blend & WPF is live! It begins with three nibbles. Two of them are about User Controls and one is about effects (reflection).

The first part about User Controls shows how to create something similar to movie clips in Flash. The second part shows how to create a Dependency Property, and expose it in Blend. That means you can change the properties of the User Control just by using Blend’s UI.

The nibble about effects shows how to create an animated reflection. No tutorial about WPF can leave this out πŸ˜‰

Your tutorial tells me to create a new Silverlight project in Blend. However, I don’t see it.

Please, notice that you have to use Expression Blend 2 May Preview in order to create Silverlight projects, not the version that is part of the Expression Suite (version 1).

You can have both versions installed at the same time.

In User Controls Part 2: Diversify! ( #8 ) I kept getting an error when using for ( var …

Since I’m new to this stuff, I wasn’t sure how to fix it, but changing var to int seemed to work. I’m a noob at C# but I think var is specific to Flash.

Ooops. That’s JavaScript πŸ™‚
The funny thing is that I don’t get any error.

Thanks for the feedback. I will fix it as soon as I can.

Thanks Ceslo!

Not to be annoying, but when get a chance, you may need to photoshop the image as well to reflect the code changes.

The site is fantastic BTW!
