Duration: 19 minutes
Summary: In this video, we will continue the introduction to Expression Blend 4. In the previous video we introduced Blend 4 and talked a little bit about the sample projects and the artboard. Today, we will talk about the rest of the application by doing a quick tour. We will discuss the artboard tools like the zoom, visual effects, snapping to grid and annotations. Then we will discuss the objects and timeline section where we have the tree of controls that our application is using. The timeline part is about animations that will be explained later. Finally, we will talk about the properties panel. We will see how the properties will change depending on the control selected in the objects and timeline section. We can change the name of the control and search for properties for quick find. In the next videos, we will dig deeper by starting to use the controls and their properties.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
