Ahhh, screw it. You know the drill.
This time, we blow $#!* up. (more…)]]>
So, let’s get started! (more…)]]>
Again, keep in mind that Kongregate wrote these tutorials for beginning programmers, thus they prefered to “make things work” rather than “make things work in the best way”. And, in the interest of keeping the code simple, I plan to cut corners, too ;). Additionally, this tutorial builds on my other tutorials, so if you don’t understand something please refer to Shootorial Conversion #2 and Shootorial Conversion #1.
Here we go! (more…)]]>
Welcome to the next tutorial in my Silverlight game programming tutorial series. For those out of the loop, I recently started a series of tutorials porting Kongregate’s Flash game programming tutorial series over to Silverlight. In my last Silverlight game programming tutorial I converted their Shootorial #1 tutorial, so this time I will convert Shootorial #2.
As I stated before, Kongregate’s tutorials assume no programming knowledge and holds your hand while walking you through the IDE. Conversely, I assume a basic understanding of C# programming and I don’t use the IDE at all. Also, I assume you read enough of my previous Silverlight tutorials to know how to deploy a basic Silverlight application. If not, check the previous game programming tutorial’s prerequisites to learn more.
Alright, let’s begin! (more…)]]>
So, for this tutorial, we will create a rectangle that you can drag using the left mouse button, resize using the scroll wheel and change its color using the right mouse button. Hopefully, this examle will give you a basic overview on how to handle mouse events in Silverlight.
With all that said, let’s get started. (more…)]]>
Mike Snow announces the release
Jessie Liberty has an excellent release guide
Scott Guthrie gives an overview off the Silverlight 2 goodness
One other thing: It looks like Microsoftl also supports developing Silverlight applications using Eclipse! Although the tutorials I write on this site will never require you to have an IDE, I am very excited by this news. Here’s a few more links on Silverlight with Eclipse to whet your appetite:

Method of Failed - Silverlight 2 RC0 Released for Developers
ScottGu’s Blog - Silverlight 2 Release Candidate Now Available
Silverlight Version 2 RC0 Released!! (details all breaking changes in the post)
Being a only a developer release, I wiil not update any of my Silverlight 2 Beta 2 tutorials. Once Microsoft offically releases Silverlight 2, then I will make sure all my tutorials work. However, after looking over the breaking changes, I believe all my samples should continue to work fine.
Secondly, I finally launched the first version of Die, Ajax!’s Silverlight Portal. Long-term, I want the Silverlight Portal to aggregate the best of all the Silverlight tutorials on the web in one place. Things may look kind of sparse now, but I will add plenty more tutorials over the following weeks. So, go ahead, knock yourself out.]]>
