Silverlight Layout System (SLS) – Jesse Liberty


Part I

The first thing to know about the SLS is that most of the time you can ignore it! It is possible to become quite proficient in Silverlight programming without even knowing explicitly that the system exists, much less having to override any of its methods. For most developers, most of the time, the layout system is implicit and mediated for you by layout controls such as the GridPanel and StackPanel, and more recently by the Silverlight Toolkit layout controls such as the DockPanel and the WrapPanel.

That said, there are times when you want to do something the existing controls just don’t provide, and familiarity with how Silverlight lays out controls can be both fascinating and essential.
