This Wrox Blox eaches you how to create animations using Microsoft’s new platform for building rich Internet applications—Silverlight. This Wrox Blox introduces animation concepts and answers questions such as when and why you want to use animation in your Web development. The core classes that make up the Silverlight animation subsystem are also introduced, providing you with a solid foundation to take away and build on.
This Wrox Blox takes you step-by-step through three examples, ranging from basic to advanced and from theoretical to real world. The examples cover topics such as how to create a progress indicator and how to use the Completed event to implement animation-chaining. After reading this Wrox Blox, you will be able to define animations using XAML syntax, control them from JavaScript, and include them in your Silverlight-based Web development. The examples in this Wrox Blox are built using Visual Studio 2005 and Silverlight 1.0 RC1. The Microsoft 1.0 Silverlight SDK is also used, which provides Silverlight project templates for Visual Studio 2005.
