Build Your First XAML Application (Part 2)
Given the skeleton application you saw created in Part I of this session, this second half completes the XAML video-viewer application using data binding to fill a list of videos, templates to display the video thumbnails, converters to convert from a file name to a video thumbnail, and applying styles to change the look of the application. By the time you have finished this session, you'll have the basic skills you need to get started using Visual Studio's XAML designer to create WPF and Silverlight applications.
