David Anson, Senior SDE in the
Silverlight controls toolkit, and Dave
, Senior Dev Lead on Silverlight mobile team, introduce the controls
available in the first release of the Silverlight for Windows Phone
. The toolkit is open source—not only do you get good controls, but
you get primitives you can reuse. Additionally, you get to learn how to build
controls that are theme and orientation aware.

This first release includes: DatePicker, TimePicker, ContextMenu,
ToggleSwitch, WrapPanel, and a GestureService you can use on any Silverlight
