This chapter has defined the building blocks for future discussion, namely dependency and attached properties, lookless controls, bindings, and storyboards. It gives an example of using the MS Expression Blend SDK interactivity functionality. All of these will be used throughout the book to build animations. It is assumed that the reader already has some knowledge of the aforementioned subjects and uses this chapter only as a refresher. For an in-depth treatment of these subjects, we provide the reader with references within the text.
The next chapter will build on this material to cover creating animation is Silverlight business applications.
