Updated Bag-o-Tricks for January


In celebration of the availability of the January CTP of VS “Orcas”, I’ve updated the bag-o-tricks.

Have fun!

New: Zap Scroller

(Cleaned up my Christmas present for public consumption.)

I’ve seen this trick done in flash quite a bit. I wanted to play with animating the “current item” in an ItemsControl. I also wanted to model a method for exposing a preview of all of the items in an ItemsControl.

I steal and extend some of the command tricks I used it “List Pager”. Let me know what you think.

Updated: Graph

A couple of bug fixes. When you set the center node to null, I clear out the lines right away. New nodes come in randomly instead of at the same spot.
