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.
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.
- MultiScaleImage: Good explaination here: Controlling distortion when scaling
