In this post I will take the login screen mockup and create a Silverlight layout from it. But before I delve into the screens let’s talk about layouts in general.
When building applications one of the hardest things to get right is the layout of controls and how they behave when the application resizes.
When designers create there mockups they generally create screens that are snapshots taken at a single point in time. Some of the more experienced designers produce multiple mockups that show the same application behaving as they’d expect when resized at the same single point in time. I prefer the multiple mockup process showing the effect of resizing but at the end of the day it all depends on what your designers/UX people are willing to do.
