New Video Tutorial: How to make a Silverlight Glassy Button for Designers
In my recent video tutorial on how to create a custom Silverlight Button Control I showed how to make a set of Rectangles that look like a glassy button. I then showed how to turn it into an actual Silverlight Button. I got an email from a reader/friend named Partick telling me that the information was very useful but the button itself was not very convincing as a glassy button. He suggested that I make a tutorial that was aimed at designers showing them how to re-create convincing glassy buttons like ones shown here: http://www.netdenizen.com/buttonmill/recent.php
I told him that would be a good idea and asked him which button he suggest I show how to re-create. He told me that he liked the round button (the third one from the top on the URL above).
I went ahead and made the video for him. Now, because of time contraints I could not make the custom Silverlight Button look EXACTLY like the one he showed me but I could show him, and others, the tools by which they could re-create these and other such buttons that are 100% acurate, design-wise of course.
Please keep in mind that this video tutorial is just for designers. Enjoy!
