[UPDATE: The link to the VS2008 project was broken. Sorry for that]

I just published an article I have been working on for a few days, based on a technique developed over the last few months. I got to say, I am really proud of the result.

In one past post and another, I talked about my quest to display test data in Expression Blend. The goal behind this is to enable the graphics designers to work on the controls' look and feel directly in Blend, and if possible directly in the element's context. Instead of working on "bits" (typically on DataTemplates stored in resources), the designer is able to see the result of his work without starting the application! I eventually found a way with the help of IdentityMine's Jonathan Russ, and I am now able to give test data to our graphics designers, allowing them to work in a very comfortable way.
