Release Notes

What's new in the 1.0.0 release?

This is the initial release. It is also my first relase and contribution to the public. So there is probably much to learn in the process.

Controls

DateTimeBox
The DateTimeBox is a control that holds both date and time. You can select and change both without having to operate with two different controls. It supports the MVVM pattern by using commands and bindings as well as events. VisualStates makes the control look and feel like a standard Silverlight control.

Tester application

A tester application is also available for testing the available controls. It includes a Web project that holds the Silverlight application with the default view.

.NET Framework notes:

Requires Silverlight 5 and .NET Framework 4.5 installed.
You will also have to install the Silverlight Toolkit.

Instructions for using the MM Toolkit for Silverlight binaries:

  1. Install .NET Framework 4.5 and Silverlight 5

  4. Unzip MM.Toolkit.zip to a local folder
