Introduction to Binding in Silverlight

Silverlight allows you to bind pretty much any property of any element to any other property of any other element. This technique makes it possible to build complex user interfaces with little or no event handling. In this session, you'll learn about getting started with Silverlight's Binding object, working with the Mode property to control data flow, and building type converters and data templates. We won't touch on binding to data sources--that's a topic for another day--but will instead focus on binding to properties. This important concept is key for understanding how to make Silverlight work for you.
