Blend for developers

Sign in to queue


Almost every WPF, Silverlight and WP7 developer uses Visual Studio from an MSDN subscription. Although Expression Blend is available through the same MSDN subscription, a lot of developers do not use it and write a lot of XAML by hand. Besides drawing a UI,  Expression Blend provides much more.

In this session I show you how you can use sample data to monitor the impact data has on your UI. User actions and the state of the data often have an impact on the properties of the controls. Again, this can solved in Expression Blend using the Visual State Manager. Additionally, I show how you can use Behaviors, Actions, and Triggers. I mix in a lot of tips and tricks throughout the demos.
