What this chapter covers:

Now that you have your development environment set up and you have had a taste of how fun and easy it is to create a cool looking and interactive WPF application, we can take a step back and get to the basics and discuss some of the major features of the Blend 2 integrated development environment (IDE). As we proceed, I will explain each major feature and then task you with little exercises that will help you to familiarize yourself with these tools and features. Some of these tools and features I will discuss briefly here and in more depth in later chapters. Now we are going to jump right in and start to explore some of Blend 2’s major features.
