Build HTML 5 Applications using Expression Blend
you're a frequent visitor of C# Corner, you may have read the news about Windows
8 consumer preview and Visual Studio 11. Visual Studio 11 beta was announced
couple of days ago. Well, I downloaded and installed Visual Studio 11 beta.
Check out my experience with installation
here. One thing I noticed in Visual
Studio 11 beta was that Blend is a part of the installation.
you have built any WPF and/or Silverlight applications, I am sure you have used
Expression Blend. Blend allows developers to create stunning user interfaces
without writing a single line of code. So what has changed in Blend version 5?
I am not going into much details but one feature that is added to Blend is now
you can build metro-style apps using Blend. Not only that, you can choose
between XAML and HTML. When you create a blend project, now you have a choice
to pick your design language. It can be either XAML or HTML.
The good thing about blend is
that it support visual controls and all design features what blend support for
XAML. So WPF and Silverlight developers will find it handy when building HTML 5
applications using Blend.
actually kind of puts a stamp on Microsoft moving more towards HTML 5 and bringing death to Silverlight.
