Title: Introducing Blend 3 - Course Silverlight 3 - Lesson 6
Duration: 19 minutes
Summary: In this video, we continue our discussion of Silverlight 3 by introducing a new tool for visual design. In previous videos you saw me typing all the XAML code in Visual Studio to get our application to work. The truth of the matter is that when developing Silverlight applications you do not type all the XAML code yourself. You use Blend to add all the controls and affects on the screen, and you use Visual Studio to write the code behind. So to complete our discussion, I give you a quick tour of Blend 3 in this video. I show you how to create a project, and navigate the IDE. Blend 3 is a very powerful tool for designing Silverlight applications. We will use it in this course along with Visual Studio to complete our examples. You will see me switching back and forth between these tools to create nice looking and powerful examples.
