Hello All,

As you know MIX 2010 is coming soon (March 15-17).  Many of us submitted Open Call Session Proposals.  Some of those proposals actually were liked enough by MSFT and put up to you, the public for a vote.  So, please go to http://visitmix.com/opencallvote/ and vote for the sessions you would like to see.  Not going to MIX you say?  Well, those session will be posted when MIX ends so you will be able to see them.  So you have a vested interest and should go vote now.  Now, I am not saying you have to vote for me.  But, if you like the session I proposed then please put me on your ballot.  My session is:

Also, you might want to also vote for two friends of mine who I have seen give presentations before and are very good at it.  They are:

New Codeplex Silvelright Project! Silverlight StoryboardHelper

Hello All!

I have finally done it; that is, add a project to codeplex! 

It consists of a Silverlight project (called StoryboarHelperProject) with a class called StoryboardHelper.cs.   Currently it has two public static methods called FadeInFrameworkElement and FadeIOutFrameworkElement. They allow you to specify a FrameworkElement to be faded in or out over a specified duration after a specified delay time.

It is my hope that people will add to the StoryboardHelper class to make this the most comprehensive Silverlight Storyboard helper class around!

Please take a look and start to contribute to your Silvelright Community today!

New Video Tutorial: How to Make a Silverlight Visual Tree Helper to help you find FrameworkElements in the Visual Tree

In this video I first show you how to cycle through all FrameworkElements in the main Grid.  I then show you how to make a new class called  “>VTreeHelper with a Static method that allows you to loop trough the main Grid and look for a FrameworkElement by name.  I show you how to use this to enter the name of a FrameworkElement and then set its Visibility to Collapsed.

This tutorial is for developers and not designers.
