Event Description

Topic: Using the Silverlight Toolkit
Speaker: Calvin Schrotenboer

Silverlight 2 was released in October 2008. Key improvements over Version 1 include the ability to program all code behind in C# or Visual Basic.NET (instead of only JavaScript) and a few built-in user controls (buttons, image controls, list boxes, etc.). However, there were only a limited number of these controls. The remaining controls can be found in the Silverlight Toolkit ( There are currently three parts to the Toolkit: controls, charting and theming. Notable controls include the TreeView, AutoCompleteBox, DockPanel and WrapPanel.

This presentation will provide an overview of the Silverlight Toolkit followed by some detailed examples of Silverlight Charting.
