Here's some particularly amazing Silverlight examples found in the blogosphere. Also, be sure to check out the Silverlight Galleries and the Learn page.


  • Silverlight 1.0 Particle Experiment
    A nice particle web created with Silverlight 1.0.  Good example of the animations you can create without the client CLR.
  • The Bubblemark Animation Test
    Alexey Gavrilov's near comprehensive list of benchmarks based entirely on a group of bubbles bouncing in a 3-D room. Examples in both JavaScript and CLR.
  • WynApse Silverlight Examples and Samples
    A massive list of sample code and clever controls and animations in Silverlight.
  • 50 Silverlight Applications
    Tim Sneath has listed out 50 different Silverlight Applications. Insane.
  • Sudoku for Silverlight
    David Anson built a cool online sample using Silverlight that helps you play the popular Sudoku game.  Useful for both Sudoku addicts and developers wanting to learn Silverlight.
  • Font Embedding and RSS data in Silverlight
    Tim Heuer shows how you can create your own font type and embed it within your Silverlight 1.0 application.  His application retrieves dynamic content from an RSS feed and uses the custom font to display it.
  • Pascal Support for Silverlight
    RemObjects Software now has a project template for Visual Studio 2008 that enables you to write Silverlight 1.1 .NET applications using Pascal.  It is wild to see a screenshot of FireFox on the Mac running a Silverlight application that was written with a Pascal code-behind file in Visual Studio 2008. 
  • Silverlight Toolbar Example
    A nice sample from Vivek that describes how to create an animated toolbar where the buttons expand when you hover over them.  You might also want to check out the "Office UI Ribbon" sample here to see how to build a really cool toolbar within the browser.
  • Silverlight Dashboard
    A DotNetNuke module that displays a Silverlight Gauge that automatically updates every 30 seconds. The Silverlight application communicates with the DotNetNuke website using web services that cache the data so that the query is run only once every 30 seconds, no matter how many clients are consuming the data feed.
  • Liquid Silverlight Controls Demo
    This is a desktop-like demo consisting of most of the controls available in the free Liquid Controls library, featuring the Rich TextBox, TreeView, Dialog, Menus, Scroller and many more.

United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
