Creating User Interfaces

Abstract

Now that you’ve seen what XAML is all about, let’s look at the basic user interface controls that Silverlight provides. Silverlight supplies standard controls such as text boxes for display and for user input, list boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, and others. While a standard set of controls is important for building user interfaces, even more important is how these controls are placed on a user interface. This is handled by Silverlight’s layout controls: one that enables absolute positioning and two that allow more intelligent layouts of controls relative to each other. This chapter will conclude with some advice and examples on how you can build navigation into a Silverlight application, something not directly supported yet.
