Through KarstenJ comes this gem of a tutorial in the Expression blog that walks you through building an interactive media player using Expression Interactive Designer for the Windows Presentation Foundation.
I went through the tutorial end-to-end tonight. Along the way, you’ll:
- Create a Play/Pause button out of a CheckBox using States and Triggers on a template,
- Add a MediaElement to the scene, and Databind sliders to two of its properties, and finally,
- Use a custom ValueConverter to Databind to one of the controls that provide user feedback.
The tutorial is eloquently written and showcases quite a few concepts. As you follow along, I encourage you to toggle back and forth to peek at the XAML Code that Expression is creating for you behind the scenes. The process should take under an hour.
