Showcase Control Samples for WPF, Silverlight & Windows Phone 7

Jason Beres [Infragistics] / Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Showcase samples are designed and developed to help inspire what is possible with the NetAdvantage controls.  We’ve been shipping these inspirational samples more recently for the XAML products, you may have seen the Finance Stocks Dashboard, Hospital, Earthquake Explorer, YouTube Media Timeline, Auto Dashboard, Airline Seating and World Stats examples.  If you haven’t I would highly recommend you check them out.

Some of the new examples we’ve posted continue to demonstrate what is possible with the controls – real world examples that use real data to show real scenarios.  Here is what we’ve added, you can download the code and read the how-to blogs for each one of these samples:
