New Silverlight Video Tutorial: How to Make a Slide In/Out Navigation Bar – All in Blend

In this video tutorial I show you how to use Behaviors and the Visual State Manager to create a navigation bar that slides in when the user places their mouse at the top of the page and then slides away when they move their mouse away from the navigation.  You can see it yourself in action Here.

New Silverlight Video Tutorial: How to Add Multiple BitmapEffects to One Object

In response to my Twitter buddy Funwithcoding I made this post: In Silverlight you can only add one BitmapEffect (Blur or DropShadow) to one object at a time. But these effects are passed down to their child objects (inheritance).  For that reason we can use a little trick and apply multiple effects to one object (or so it appears).  In this Short two minute video I show you how:

New Silverlight Video Tutorial: How to create a Slider with a ToolTip that shows the Value of the Slider

Hello All!

Recently I was asked to make a ToolTip that now only followed the Thumb of the Slider but also showed the value of what the slider was (see image above).  I thought about this and I came up with a pretty quick solution.  There may be other ways to do it but watch the short 1o minute video to see how I did it.

New Silverlight Video Tutorial: How to Build Your Very Own TutorialCam

 

Hello All!

IMPORTANT: Watching the video I see I said “I am going to Undo that…”  To Undo in Blend hit Control+Z

I have been asked repeatedly for the source code for the camera application I use to show myself when filming Silverlight video tutorials.  Well, I decided to make a tutorial on how to build your very own TutorialCam (shown above).  I takes about 27 minutes but is much easier than you would think.  There are a lot of little things that you need to do but it is fun and when you are done you will be ready to make your very own Silverlight video tutorials just like me and possibly get MSFT MVP along the way.

Enjoy!

New Silverlight Video Tutorial: How to Fire a Visual State based upon the value of a Boolean Variable

Hello All!

In this short 7.44 minute video I show you how you can, with one line of C# code fire one of two Visual States based upon the value of a Boolean variable, one if it is true or another one if it is false.  This is much easier than evaluating the variable yourself and then firing each VisualState manually.  Enjoy!
