A Developer Primer for Behaviors in Expression Blend 3


Behaviors, Triggers and Actions released with Blend 3 allow for developers to wrap up logic into objects that can instantly add interactivity and functionality to an application just by dragging and dropping.  This encapsulation is great for reuse along with empowering designers.

Jeff Kelly, one of the developers behind Behaviors has 3 posts covering an Introduction to the API, API Details and Constraining Types and Advanced Behavior Features. Michael Washington has a tutorial on creating a very simple Behavior.  And don't miss the Expression Blend Behaviors Samples library on CodePlex which offers a collection of extra Behaviors to use, along with source code.
