Chapter 4: Container Driven Design – understanding layout
The MEAP for Expression Blend in Action was updated yesterday to include Chapter 4, “Container Driven Design – understanding layout”. In the chapter I explain the methods I use to layout applications. There is a deep discussion on mastering the Grid container and heavy focus on making child elements greedy.

For those of you who have written a book before I’m sure you understand the dearth of articles on the blog of late. It’s hard to imagine just how much work goes into a book length work. And no matter how many people tell you that ahead of time, you still aren’t prepared for it! The good news is that we are really in the thick of it now and things are going very well. My sincerest thanks to all the friends and supporters of the book, please enjoy the newest chapter with my compliments!
