Silverlight Controls: User Experiences for Web & Mobile Apps

Silverlight is Microsoft's cross-platform plug-in that allows developers to build rich media and business apps that can run across the Web, desktop, and mobile devices. Microsoft provides Silverlight as a free plug-in to the .NET framework. Microsoft's Silverlight product team has developed and released the Silverlight Toolkit – Silverlight controls intended to promote the building of Silverlight-based applications. The Silverlight Toolkit includes full open source code, samples, documentation, and design-time support for the Silverlight controls.

Since Silverlight's initial release in 2007, Silverlight controls have become available from third party component developers. TechXtend sells Silverlight controls offerings from companies including Infragistics, GrapeCity, Telerik, Developer Express, Software FX, and Syncfusion.
