See more: WPF expression Blend Controls , +
Hi all,

I am planning to work with WPF and with an additional grahicstool like (Exp.Bl.) or Zam3D. But I am not clear in the question how to combine/work the graphicstools witch are exporting XAML and external controls supplied by Telerik or Infragistics. Or is a Zam3D-Designer (Expr.Bl.) be able to import a non xaml-control to create the complete UI ? or must xaml and the external controls must be merged in the VS2010-IDE ?

what is the rigth way to work with ?

I do WPF, and never use Expresison Blend. You do not need to. I would say just use Visual Studio, and edit the XAML.

Hello Clifford, That is not totally true. Because when we want to extract default template of a third party user control its only possible with Expression Blend. Also when you want to edit animations it is the Blend that helps you.

I have done animations using straight WPF. When I was working at Microsoft that is how all the developers did the animations in the team I worked with. Of course they were fairly simple.
