Title: Creating resources and adding sample data - Course Silverlight 3 - Lesson 8
Duration: 16 minutes
Summary: In this video, we take a control (like a rectangle), and we change some of its properties. Then, we save these changes as a resource. This resource can be local (to the page) or global (to the application). When we add other controls, we can apply this resource to them. On another note, we see how we can easily add columns and rows using Blend. We use the Data tab to add sample data to the application. When we drop the data on the LayoutRoot, a list will be automatically created to hold the data. We also add a drop down list, and bind it to the same data.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
Technology Used: Silverlight 3 and Visual Studio 2010.
Keywords: Silverlight 3, XAML, Grid, Resource, Brush, Data source.
