One of my demos in my Windows Phone 7 presentation at Dev Connections in Orlando on March 29th, 2011 and the subject of the article I wrote for the Silverlight Update Newsletter in April of 2010 was showing the power of Microsoft Expression Blend to create XAML storyboard animations.
The document that contains the painstakingly detailed instructions to build the simple Animation application in Silverlight that was highlighted can be downloaded here.
This demo shows the power of building XAML Storyboard animations in Microsoft Expression Blend without having to manually write any code! It also shows the power of Blend when you learn how to use it.
The instructions are for building the application for Windows Phone 7, but the process is identical for building native Silverlight applications.
