Silverlight for Windows Embedded on Windows Embedded Compact 7

Fellow MVP Jochen Dieckfoß has posted a tutorial about Silverlight for Windows Embedded development using the new tools included in the Windows Embedded Compact 7 CTP on his blog “Discover the Windows Embedded Experience”: http://discovertheexperienc... This tutorial is very useful also because it allows you to compare the differences between the current version and the new one and, more specifically, allows you to appreciate how the ......

Silverlight for Windows Embedded tutorial (step 6)

In this tutorial step we will develop a very simple clock application that may be used as a screensaver on our devices and will allow us to discover a new feature of Silverlight for Windows Embedded (transforms) and how to use an “old” feature of Windows CE (timers) inside a Silverlight for Windows Embedded application. Let’s start with some XAML, as usual: <UserControl xmlns="http://schemas.micro... xmlns:x="http://schemas.mic... Width="640" ......

Silverlight for Windows Embedded Tutorial (step 5 and a bit of Windows Phone 7)

In this second tutorial we will learn how to use storyboards to create animations inside our user interface and how we can control them from code. We can reopen our silverlight2 application project in Expression Blend 2 SP1 and add a new element to ......
