Silverlight 2 SDK Beta 2 Documentation

The Silverlight 2 SDK Beta 2 documentation is now available to be downloaded. It is a 50MB download of the compiled help files jam packed with good stuff :)

Here are some highlights from the beta 2 help files:

  • There is a long list of Breaking Changes. Need to review these for sure. The first one mentions that you need the latest Silverlight 2 Beta 2 Tools for Visual Studio 2008 (phew, long title) before using your projects. Yeah, pretty obvious ... but important :)
  • The new TabControl is included in the docs ... nice stuff in there.
  • There are now 8 data binding markup extensions. They added Path (which was set via the constructor in beta 1), NotifyOnValidationError, ValidatesOnExceptions.

Notice this beta 2 teaser blurb from the page:

If you have the Silverlight 2 SDK Beta 2 installed, please save the Silverlight.chm in this package to the Documentation\Help folder of your SDK install.
