September 2010 | Microsoft

Silverlight 4 User Interface Cookbook, is a new book from Packt that is aimed at designers who have basic knowledge of Silverlight and who wish to build applications using elegant and attractive interfaces. Written by Vibor Cipan, this is the first and only book on developing Silverlight user interfaces.

Microsoft Silverlight is a free plug-in powered by the .NET framework that is compatible across multiple browsers, devices and operating systems to bring a new level of interactivity wherever the Web works. With support for advanced data integration, multithreading, HD video using IIS Smooth Streaming, and built in content protection, Silverlight enables online and offline applications for a broad range of business and consumer scenarios.

This book covers everything that is required to design and implement a user interface, together with professional user experience and interface guidelines to make one’s solutions and applications pleasurable for users. It offers essential recipes, with each recipe depicting the commonly used user interface patterns built with Silverlight and, in some cases, with WPF, to showcase the possibilities.

Using the Silverlight 4 User Interface Cookbook, developers will learn the difference between liquid and fixed layouts to choose the best design for their application. They will learn how to create a responsive UI and remove the visual noise from the interfaces for a rich user experience. This book will also help them use pixel shading techniques to achieve amazing visual effects on images and controls.

With step-by-step instructions, this book offers various techniques for implementing user interface patterns with Silverlight. It is now out and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/silverlight-4-user-interface-cookbook/book
