SilverlightContrib is taking off

October 20, 2008

Congratulations to the freshly expanded SilverlightContrib team for the work done on their Alpha 2 release!  They’ve overshot their original release goals set in September by quite bit. 

Straight from their site:

Silverlight Contrib is a collection of Silverlight Controls and API enhancements built for and by the Silverlight developer community.
The current release is compatible with Silverlight 2 – RCW and consists of the following features:

  • Color Picker
  • Gauge Control
  • Star Selector
  • Enhanced Metafile (EMF)
  • Cool Menu


  • Zip Compression
  • Byte Utilities
  • String Utilities
  • Simple Text Parser
  • Animation Tweening
  • Wheel Mouse Listener
  • Clipboard Helper – (Internet Explorer Only)
  • Data Context Extension Method Wrapper

My favorite features include the Color Picker and the Tweening Library, which you can use to do non-linear dynamic animations.

Nicely done, I look forward to the next release!
