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 Create a ToolTip with a Delay

Have you ever needed to have your Silverlight Object’s ToolTip appear after a delay?  Say, two seconds?  Well, if you have done this in WPF you know that it is quite easy but not so for Silverlight.  Until Microsoft adds that property we are just out of luck, or are we? 

Well, after some research I found THIS project on CodePlex called the Advanced ToolTip project.  The author, someone named XavierDecoster has extended the ToolTipService class and added a property called InitialDelay that sets the time before the ToolTip will appear and one called DelayTime that will set how long the ToolTip shows before it disappears.  AWESOME!

So, I made a short, 7 minute video tutorial that shows you how to use this awesome ToolTipService.
