SilverBullet #8 – Accessing local files
I’d like to provide you with a SilverBullet™, a small snippet of Silverlight, a class or namespace hidden in the silverlight .NET framework, to help you out in times of need. It’s not to learn, but something to keep in your pocket. Just remember it’s there and you’re safe. Although the Silverlight security model prevents access to the local file system, it is very easy to open and save or import and export files to and from the file system. It is not possible to gain any information about the local ......

Monitoring routed events in WPF
A few days ago I wanted to monitor all routed events fired in my application. Because I am running an XBAP application inside a browser windows, Snoop wasn’t very helpful (it usually is). Because all routed events are basically the same, you can handle them all with one singe event handler.

SilverBullet #7 - System.Windows.Messaging
I’d like to provide you with a SilverBullet™, a small snippet of Silverlight, a class or namespace hidden in the silverlight .NET framework, to help you out in times of need. It’s not to learn, but something to keep in your pocket. Just remember it’s there and you’re safe. Most often Silverlight applications take up the whole screen and the page that is hosting the application contains only one control. It is possible to split you application into smaller controls. This can be valuable when you are ......

When working on some projects and articles in Expression Blend 3 I noticed a few differences with Blend 2 right away. Here are 9 improvements and new features I really like or enjoy having now. 1. Expression Blend now shows the size of your controls even when the width and height are set to Auto: 2. The assets are placed in a panel now.

SilverBullet #6 - System.Windows.EventTrigger
I’d like to provide you with a SilverBullet™, a small snippet of Silverlight, a class or namespace hidden in the silverlight .NET framework, to help you out in times of need. It’s not to learn, but something to keep in your pocket. Just remember it’s there and you’re safe. There are situations when you would like to start an animation as soon as your application is loaded. The EventTrigger class is what you need in that case. You may know this class from WPF, but the Silverlight version is very limited. ......
