Apples "Accordion" control done in SilverLight


Sub Heading 4 

Apples “Accordion” is a simple yet powerful web site widget that makes great use of limited space. It’s just cool!

So how it works is as you hover over the text the associated panel with an image slides down. It’s a very simple animation that leaves a fullfilling feeling within the end user.

So this is my SilverLight version of the accordion: (click the picture to see the demo in action)

My control downloads the images in the form of a zip package. It uses storyboard animations for the sliding effect and it uses a callback mechanism to the underlying html web page for the navigation postbacks.

To see this control in action with all the other controls go to my demo page.
