Coming from projects in which WPF design experience was established, the step to developing in Silverlight 2 was not an easy one. Even though I anticipated getting disappointed and even annoyed by times, there were several gotchas that baffled me. Some of those can still be found in the current Beta 2 release, but others are resolved to a degree that makes for a workable Silverlight 2 environment. These include Canvas rules, Color resources, limited fonts, no BitmapEffects, no paging facility, limited resource facilities, significant transparency, StaticResources only, XML Databinding, and the lack of some important controls. I’ll let you in on this treasure trove and tell you all about these 10 Silverlight 2 gothas resolved.
