My guest-blog post on Silverlight 5 for the MVP Award Program Blog



I’m sure by now you have heard that the Silverlight 5 Release Candidate has been released. I recently had a chance to Guest Blog for the Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog on “Getting Started with the Silverlight 5 Release Candidate”. Now before we get started learning about it, let’s look at a few new features:

What is new in the Silverlight 5?

  • Multiple Window Support - Trusted app can create additional Windows.
  • Ancestor RelativeSource Binding – Enables a DataTemplate to bind to a property on the control that contains it.
  • Implicit DataTemplates – Allows you to target a data template for a specific data type.
  • ClickCount - Enables Multi-click input on left/right mouse buttons.
  • Binding on Style Setter – Allows binding to be used within styles.
  • Realtime Sound (low-latency Audio) - Enables pre-loading of an audio source for precision timing of playback. (Multiple playback is ok)
  • Variable Speed Playback (“Trick Play”) – Fast-Forward or review at variable speeds.
  • Linked Text Containers - Text will overflow from one to the next.
  • Custom Markup Extensions – Allow you to run custom code from XAML.
