The Screenshot of Silverlight 2.0 (beta 1) Controls

I just got the screenshot of Silverlight 2.0 (beta 1) from this post “About Silverlight 2 Beta 1 Controls“. It seems that there will be 29 controls available in Silverlight 2.0 (beta 1) that support to be released in next month. That’s pretty good. You can check the hierarchical structure of SL 2.0 controls in this post.

Silverlight 2.0 (beta1) control

UPDATE

The most of controls are similar to WPF control so that we can imagine how those controls will look like. But MultiScaleImage control and Wartermarked Textbox control.

(Thanks to Pablo for sharing the link about MultiScaleImage and explaining about Wartermarked Textbox control)

  • WartermarkedTextbox: Some people call them ‘Prompting text boxes’. Essentially a textbox where the label is ‘watermarked’ in the actual textbox. When the user focusses or types inside the textbox, the watermark/prompt is hidden.

  1. Nice find Michael; I was thinking along the same line, but I didn’t think they would add “RepeatButton”, “ScrolViewer”, and “ToggleButton”.
    Having the content control provides real power now!

    I’m worried Shawn Burak may loose his job now ;-)

  2. I didn’t think they would add “RepeatButton”, “ScrolViewer”, and “ToggleButton”

    but those are the control from 1.1 skd, right? that’s why they added.. but I have no idea about watermarked textbox.. I didn’t see Rich Textblock too.. :(

    Yes. but it should not be. Because we also can see the screenshot from Scott’s post too.

  3. You know what’s missing that I really need it bad, a drop down ComboBox to offer choices. I wonder if we have to use a list box to simulate that.

    Secondly, what’s “MultiScaleImage” and “WatermarkedTextBox”?

  4. a drop down ComboBox to offer choices.

    Yes. man.. no dropdownlist, treeview, tab too..

    I think that WartermarkedTextbox would be something like TextBoxWatermark from Ajax Toolkit… don’t know about MultiScaleImage.. maybe.. Image control that can scale the image :P

  5. Thanks Pablo for clarification on the WatermarkedTextBox. It is a great idea with one side effect. I’ve seen users that type in one textbox and then press tab to the next field, by the time the cursor is in the new field, the label is hidden and they don’t know what to enter. So you have to consciously look at the up coming field. That can slow down a fast data entry application.

  6. Just the same old Forms/Data led controls, so much for rich Graphical web support.

    Where is the support to Polylines, Beziers, Curves, Points that a Graphical Web Designer would be expecting ?

    Expression Blend/Silverlight seems only to be supporting Forms based web design, and not the Rich Graphical experience.

    These have been available for months now.
