Silverlight Control Hierarchy

subheading 3

In the process of mastering the Silverlight 2.0 controls I’ve documented graphically the hierarchy of the controls. It’s a simple diagram that shows relationships. I’m using this to cement my understanding of controls, in particular when creating my own controls, where and what parents to inherit from.

I plan on extending and maintaining this overtime. Please send feedback on improvements to this diagram.
