Callouts in Silverlight

with 4 comments

As per the project requirement I have to show some Callouts. I was thinking of creating it using paths and curves. It would have been a lot of work. But blend saved my time. Blend provides callouts and other shapes in toolbar, VS editor wont provide it in toolbar. Below xaml shows a callout with an Oval textbox (Oval textbox I mentioned in my earlier post).

Name Space: System.Windows.Shapes

XAML

<UserControl
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
    xmlns:ed="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/2010/drawing"
    xmlns:we="clr-namespace:Designer.Controls"
    mc:Ignorable="d"
    x:Class="Designer.Controls.CallOutOval"
    d:DesignWidth="640" d:DesignHeight="480">

    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
        <ed:Callout AnchorPoint="0,1.25" CalloutStyle="Oval" Fill="#FFF4F4F5" FontSize="14.666999816894531" Stroke="Black" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top">
            <ContentControl>
                <we:OvalTextBox Text="Your Text here" CornerRadius="50" BorderThickness="0" Background="Transparent"></we:OvalTextBox>
            </ContentControl>
        </ed:Callout>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

Blend provides different callouts like Oval, Rectangle and Cloud. We are done with the Callout user control.
