    I was wondering (as i am very new to programming),

    if it would be possible to do this project using visual studio 2005, silverlight and the expression components as all of these i have only just acquired.

    This was a fun and educational exercise for me (always a good combination).  I learned enough about graphics design to at least fear it less, especially with the use of the Expression suite.  It also opened my perspective of Silverlight to understand how it will empower us to implement more rich interactive applications.  The most interesting part for me, however, was the change in perspective I had to take in implementing an "always on" game.  As simple as a game of 8-ball is, it definitely required an adjustment in thinking from the event-driven model of programming I'm accustomed to using in my every day work.

    "Player looses turn" should be "Player loses turn".

    I too am accustomed to linear, event driven business-oriented programming, mainly with databases and VB.  Nice to see I'm not the only square trying to broaden his horizons Wink

    That was pretty awesome! Can you help me with code for a simple game of tic-tac-toe or mabey tell me where I might find code for the game?

    Thank you very much.

    A Tic tac toe game is pretty easy Jeanie if you think about it, you have a fixed win state that you can check after each turn.

    What would be really neat is if you used Ink to draw the X and O.  I think I have a new idea ...

    Steve:  You may need to replace the JS files with the newer silverlight 1.1 files.  I've run into this problem too.  That is why Silverlight 1.1 is deemed alpha (not production ready) and has a bunch of disclaimers, when it gets updated, it may break stuff since it is still that new.

    hi, thanks for explaining your program

    I have been bugging my head about how to implement ball collision but it seems your solution is a good one.

    I understand the method: 'doCollide(param)' but would love to know why you did what you did in that method i.e. can u please exlain the formula.

    cheers

    @ge-force This was with SL 1.1 which is javascript only.  This example would have to be updated to Silverlight 3.0 or 4.0 to get on Visual Studio 2010.  That requires shifting it from JS to SL.

    Is there any way to right this just with Expression Blend, Silverlight 3, and Visual Studio 2010 Professional?
