Silverlight does not offer a wide variety of built-in ways to navigate through your business application. However with just a little bit of XAML and code, you can create a variety of Silverlight navigational scenarios. In this session you will learn what is built into VS.NET, what is available on the web and how to create some of your own navigations that can be used in a variety of application scenarios. A unique, data-driven approach to a menu system will be shown using XML and XAML together in a reusable user control. You will also see how to use animation and converter classes to create some interesting navigational effects. You will walk away with a set of re-usable navigation components that you can use right away in your production Silverlight applications.
