Ok, I’ve given this talk a few times, and keep promising to post my slides and demo projects. ALLRIGHT, I’ll do it. If you saw the “pumpkin” version last fall, I’ve updated based on an attendees suggestion for spring. Now we throw bunnies, not pumpkins.
This session covers the following basic topics:
- Overview of controls
- Nesting content in Content controls
- Creating custom control templates
- Understanding Visual States
- Understanding Template Parts
- Creating custom User Controls
- Creating custom Controls
There is a starter project with some code snippets (in the snippets folder of the Silverlight project) that you can try to walk through on your own although I don’t have written explicit instructions to get you through the steps. The snippets may be enough to get you through them though if you are adventurous. There is also a completed version of the demo project that you can play with. Finally, I’ve included my slides.
If you have a user group in the So Cal area and would like me to come present this session for you (its about two hours of content) give me shout, and I’d love to come do it for you.
