Hi, I've worked with most of Microsoft's tools since VB3 and just learning WinRT now. One problem I've had in the past is with 3rd party controls, like the good old Sheridan controls for VB4 I think it was - Allowed apps to look more appealing, but it was
a maintenance time-bomb as Microsoft then added most of them to VB5 or during updates, and the Sheridan controls went obsolete. Nothing like that will ever happen with the XAML Toolkit, will it?
I have the toolkit working which is great - and I've found that I can add a vb project to the solution and access the same components which is fine.
I'm looking at the CustomGridSplitter and would like to enhance it so that I can animate the splitters, making the cells smoothly expand and collapse under control of the code - or possibly just depending on the space taken by the controls inside them.
As I'm just starting with this I think it's going to take some time even to work out what the approach should be - can anyone point me in the right direction with this?
