Show your Flickr pictures in a Silverlight book


Here is a control that everybody can easily use. This allow you to display Flickr pictures in a blog post or in any web page.


For example this set of pictures (http://www.flickr.com/photos/benjamingauthey/sets/72157604570177365/), taken by my friend Benjamin during Paris Remix 08 can be browsed just here in this post.



Now, how to get this on your own web page/blog ? There is just a few steps to follow and here is a video that explains how to do it :



Go to this page to configure your own control: http://blogs.msdn.com/mitsu/archive/2008/05/14/create-a-virtual-book-with-your-flickr-pictures.aspx


Full code source will be released very soon.

  1. L’idée est simple, fournir une application Silverlight qui se connecte dynamiquement à un compte Flickr

  5. Mike says:

    This was working for me before, but is not any more.  I was using the book control to display flickr photos. Was there a change or something?

  6. mitsu says:

    Yes, I was waiting for streaming.live.com to update to SL2. It’s been updated recently. I will update my source code asap.

    Can mediaelements playing video be placed in the book control and turned with the page surface while playing video?  I tried it and the video goes away and the sound keeps on playing.  Is there any other way to place live video on the pages?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Hello and thanks in the same time 🙂

    i want to achieve turning page effect in Blend but for WPF application not silver light

    would you plz help me to find this out

  12. Mike says:

    Looks like this needs to be updated again since the newer versions of Silverlight have been released.  Sure wish the changes that MS makes to Silverlight would still allow earlier version apps to still work.
