The Expression Blend design tool aims to keep designers productive by giving them access to pre-packaged components that enable common interactive tasks to be performed without writing additional code.

In this video we’ll look at how Blend offers Actions & Triggers in order that you can drag-and-drop to invoke functionality in response to some user interface event.
