Lab 3: Working with Panels, XAML and Controls
This lab is designed to show how to work with Xaml, panels, controls, and Visual Studio’s Cider editor. You will learn the foundation of a Silverlight application’s UI.
In the lab you'll create an application to manage contacts. The application will show the data in a grid, and you’ll be able to add a new contact with a data entry form. Along the way you'll learn how to add controls with Visual Studio, work with the Cider editor, as well as how effectively use panels.
You'll start by creating a screen to view all your contacts, with the DataGrid control. Next, you’ll add a new UserControl that will be the interface to add a contact. Finally, you’ll use the StackPanel to hold the contents of a menu. The Silverlight application that you'll create is shown next:
