Part 1: An introduction to Silverlight
Here Campbell introduces developers to the three things they need to use Silverlight to enhance an existing Web application -- the existing HTML file, a XAML file for specifying the canvas and the Silverlight.js file that comes with the Silverlight 1.0 RC Software Development Kit (SDK).
Part 2: Silverlight controls
This entry looks into creating Silverlight controls within a Web page. The author has opted to use "createObjectEx()" instead of "createObject()", as the former offers more parameters
Part 3: Silverlight and XAML
Part 4: Silverlight objects
Here the author gives his objects a name, adds some functionality and points out an annoyance with the object hierarchy that you wouldn't notice just be looking at the code.
Part 5: The Silverlight canvas
Part 6: Silverlight animation
Animation is a big Silverlight selling point. This part looks at non-interactive animations, exploring the triggers that get an animation going, the parameters that define the triggers controlling an animation and the best ways to work with a "double animation."
Part 7: Silverlight animation redux
Part 8: Silverlight gradients
Here Campbell looks at linear and radial gradients. Many tools can create them, but Silverlight offers some nice runtime effects, like filling a gradient as a page runs, and can change gradient parameters at runtime.
