Book Summary : Silverlight 4 User Interface Cookbook

Silverlight makes it much easier to build web applications with highly usable, interactive, and exciting user interfaces. However, with so many new options open to designers and developers, making the best use of the tools available is not always so easy. It's ease of use and rapid development process has left one area completely uncovered— how to design, build, and implement professional and usable interfaces, and create an enjoyable user experience and interaction.

Written by a Microsoft MVP and Silverlight Prototyping Specialist, this book is the first and only book on developing Silverlight User Interfaces. Clear, step-by-step instructions show how to build all the user interface elements that users look forward to in a cutting edge app. This book offers essential recipes, with each recipe depicting the commonly used user interface patterns built with Silverlight, and in some cases, with WPF to showcase the possibilities.

What you will learn from this book :

  • Implement liquid versus fixed layouts to choose the best design for your application
  • Build custom controls like navigation pane, split button, and command link button to suit your application's needs
  • Good design practices for patterns like wizards, tabs, status bar area and window locations
  • Menu usage practices—classical and contextual ones together with guidelines
  • Design and implement navigation patterns, expanders, tiled sections, task panes, and collapsible panels for saving space and minimizing visual distractions
  • Design and implement calendar controls to allow user-specific time and date input
  • Represent large data sets using alternating row colours as a design technique
  • Create a responsive UI and remove the visual noise from the interfaces for a rich user experience
  • Enable full screen Silverlight experiences for interactive applications such as games, maps, and media players.
  • Add and utilize the maps and geo-based UI controls for a truly immersive map experience for your users
  • Use the pixel shading techniques to achieve amazing visual effects on images and controls
