Working with Data when Designing Your UI
It's almost impossible to design an application today without using some form data. Working with data has generally been time consuming and difficult, Expression Blend makes it much easier. Easy to create sample data, easy to work with that data visually while designing your application and easy to change the sample data for live data when the time is right. This short series of tutorials takes you through the concepts you need to understand to make the most out of sample data in Expression Blend.
Goal: To understand the basics of using sample data when building an application. You will learn how to create the data, how to use the data as part of your design process and how to change both the way that data looks and the way it is laid out.
