ParallaxUi – source posted

I’ve cleaned up the source to ParallaxUi a bit and am attaching it to this post as a .zip file.  This has a VisualStudio solution that contains three VisualStudio projects:

  • ParallaxUi – the custom decorator that creates the Parallax UI and exposes properties like rotation and methods like “implode”.

  • ParallaxUiTest – a simple test app

  • ParallaxXbapTest – pretty much the same as ParallaxUiTest, but housed in an XBAP.

The most interesting files to look at are ParallaxUi\ParallaxUi.xaml* and ParallaxUiTest\Window1.*

    After some google searching, it seems this is a limitation of V1.0 of wpf. The solution is to go over the control’s source code, delete the xaml file declaring the resources used by the control and declare the resources in code, in the control’s constructor. This is a limitation of all user controls that have partial implementation in a xaml file. I hope this helps ppl who bumped into this "bug" when putting the decorator into their project…
