Silverlight Control Styling Tips Articles

We’ve published eleven new articles on the blog and they all contain information and tips that you’ll find useful when styling common Silverlight 3 controls. First there’s an article with some general tips: it discusses template binding, different ways of binding Content in your template, some of the smarts in the Make Into Control command, and some tips on visual states. Then there are ten articles focusing on specific commonly-used controls. For each of these specific articles the article format includes a list of the control’s visual states and parts, an explanation of the function and importance of each part, a graphical comp of a control and its states, a XAML representation of the control in artwork form, and then in-depth steps for turning that artwork into a template for the control. Here are links to the articles. Enjoy!
