Packaging Silverlight Applications

Part two of our Silverlight Introduction tutorial. In this screencast, Mike shows you how to save your walking routes to disk, and how to improve your app's design using Expression Blend.


In the first part of this Silverlight introduction, you learned how to use Silverlight and Bing Maps to create a simple web app for calculating walking routes between any two places.

Now, you're going to let the user save these routes to their hard drive, and display them in a list so they can easily be loaded later.

And once the app is feature-complete, you'll learn how to use Microsoft Expression Blend to improve the design of the app. In particular, you'll see how to define two different "states" for the app, and generate smooth transitions between the two with a few clicks.
