Project panel

The Project panel in Microsoft Expression Blend 2 helps you do the following tasks:

  • View all files associated with the currently open project.

  • Link to data sources (when you are working in a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Silverlight 2 project).

For information about how to work with the Project panel, see the topics under Managing your projects and files.
