  1. How do you set a default size of a control that you can resize? I have been looking at a code sample from Charles Petzold. It is from here: http://www.charlespetzold.com/blog/2009/05/Realizing-a-Fisheye-Effect-in-Silverlight.html it uses mouse over methods to increase the size of button classes. I have it working but I want to make some modifications. I want the starting size of the button to be larger. I do not know how much of the code I need to post here to make the issue clear enough. The XAML for the page describes a "FisheyeButton" that is described in a seperate xaml file. Something like this: <StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" Width="1017" Orientation="Horizontal" Height="253"> <src:FisheyeButton Style="{StaticResource btnStyle}" ButtonContent="Button No. 1" /> </StackPanel> The functionality of the project is such that if I give the Fisheyebutton a width and height a set size at this loction, the effect where the size of the control the effect of becoming larger does not happen. In other words, if I write in the <src:FisheyeButton... tag above Width="100", then the button does not behave at run time as it should. In the same page.xaml file, the btnStyle is defined like this: <UserControl.Resources > <Style x:Key="btnStyle" TargetType="src:FisheyeButton"> <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value ="Center" /> <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value ="Center" /> <Setter Property="FontSize" Value ="12" /> </Style > </UserControl.Resources > I wonder if perhaps at this point, I can add a "Setter" property to define a default starting widh and height for the class.
  2. Help me Convert this WPF to Silverlight I am interested in a Charles Petzold C# example that shows how to do a fisheye effect ( http://www.charlespetzold.com/blog/2009/05/Realizing-a-Fisheye-Effect-in-Silverlight.html ). The XAML code samples are in WPF but I want to try this in Silverlight. When I try to create the XAML code in Silverlight, the compiler complains in two locations: <Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> Error 1 The type 'x:Type' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that all referenced assemblies have been built. <Style.Triggers> Error 2 The attachable property 'Triggers' was not found in type 'Style'. How do I convert this to Silverlight?
  3. TextBlock wrapping of text in Silverlight XAML file. I have a wierd and annoying problem. I have a textblock that is inside a stackpanel that is Oriented horizontal. It would be nice if I could have the textblock appear in multiple lines nicely wrapped. How could I do that?
  4. I have a float data type in C#. Let's say its value is 5.827671 and I want to concat/round it to the nearest 100th place 5.83 How would I do that? The value is ported to a string by floatvalue.ToString()
  5. In a main routine of a c sharp program, you have a string array like this: public static int Main(string[] arguments) Well, let's suppose I am mimicing this sort of function. Would this be the proper use of a string array? string[] arguments; arguments[0] = "C:\\Users\\All Users\\Apple\\Some File.msi"; arguments[1] = "C:\\Users\\All Users\\Apple\\Another FIle.msi"; I get a compile error Compiler Error CS0165 right on the first line. I guess this is not how to assign strings in C#. But I thought it was.
