It would be helpful if the changes to Theming for SL4 could be highlighted and remove the reference to ImplicitStyleManager now that it is no longer valid for SL4. Very confusing reading all about the SL3 solutions when they are not applicable to SL4.

Excellent toolkit, can't start a project without it! I miss the autocomplete combobox and I love the busyindicator

The controls will be useful for silverlight based development

Silverlight Toolkit is very nice. I really love it. I love at the sample it look very good. Any one can provide me the source code of that example?

Is there any chance that all features will get mature somewhen? No update since more than a year! I'm getting more and more unconfident whether it's a good idea to invest any more time into silverlight ...

Can anyone please be kind to help me with some basic guideline in running these binaries. i am a very junior developer and struggling a bit at the moment. i was wishing to run an app called the pivot viwer itself but not even sure it is included in these binaries but being able to run these will get me started in thre right direction anyway. God bless you. Manny

How about some update? Nothing happening here for more than half year! Is Silverlight "deprecated" in Microsoft since introduction of HTML5?

just for study

Version 4 of this Silverlight stuff and no decent getting started tuts. WTF, Microsoft? WTF?

I've had to revert to an earlier release. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but TreeViewDragDropTarget is now unusable. Normal clicking (ie not actually click-and-drag) has about 50% chance of initiating a drag operation, which is very frustrating. I didn't change any code. just changed references and recompiled.

Project could be really great if patches were actually accepted/rejected from the community to make Silverlight better. Items sitting in a "being evaluated" status for over a year suggests this is closed Community w/ an open source license. (There's at least 3 patches on Drag Drop -- will there evaluation ever finish?). I want Drag and Drop to really work in ChildWindows.

but not support .net3.5

This project needs more money; so experimental controls actually get finished in this decade. Other controls are good.

Great release. Huge time saver. Examples are simple and get straight to the point.

Very good stuff. Wish it was easier to hide the legend or change themes using Charts. Drag / Drop code is awesome and works really well out of the box (though would be great if it worked for an ItemsControl as well as the derived ListBox). Layout panels were desperately needed. Wonderful project and a must-have for Silverlight development in my opinion.

Can use Visual Studio 2010(Simplified Chinese)?
by tiduszhang on Jul 12, 2010 at 10:39 AM
Great work! Any samples for this toolkit? Thanks
by le9569 on Jun 7, 2010 at 11:42 PM
Just about everything you need that *didn't* come with the Silverlight 4 SDK! Hurray for Wrapping Panels.

In the Silverlight 4 toolkit, I can't find the Viewbox control. I use Visual Studio 2010 as IDE.

This toolkit is fantastic! Thanks for the hard work for making my life easier! I've just begun to scratch the surface and so far I'm very happy. :)

Thanks. Some Samples ?

Great job on getting this released at the same time!

Woohoo! PanelDragDropTarget rocks! :)
