TT.UIA for Silverlight
With thinktecture UIAnnotations you can declarative attach visual Adorners and Expression Blend Behaviors to your user interfaces, including smart tags, editor toolbars and visual state markers for required fields, edit states and more. It also can automatically attach adorners to elements while reflecting the Data Annotations of the associated data sources. For a better MVVM support it offers a generic command behavior that is assignable to every event of a given element. thinktecture UIAnnotations is available for WPF and Silverlight.

thinktecture UIAnnotations in brief:
  • 10+ useful adorners and 5+ Expression Blend Behaviors.
  • automatic assignment of adorners via Data Annotations.
  • a custom adorner model for silverlight.
  • GenericAdorner allows to attach every element as an adorner.
  • AdornerBehaviorFactory that can be used to wrap every adorner as an Expression Blend Behavior.
  • BehaviorFactory allows the assignment of Expression Blend Behaviors via styles.
  • with Command Behavior you can map every control event to a command.
