Now I am developing a Silverlight Application. The learning curve is steep, working with XAML I am starting from scratch. It isn’t like HTML at all and it is not so easy to make controls look like you want the to. And it was even harder because I didn’t have Firebug to help. Searching the Internet, I found Silverlight Spy. This is a cool, free tool that helps in many ways with Silverlight Development.
With Silverlight Spy you can inspect your XAP package, monitor events, network activity and performance and more. But the best part is that I can inspect the elements within my XAML at runtime and even make changes. This is pretty important because I find that the XAML design experience in Visual Studio is less than perfect. I’ve already used Silverlight Spy to help me solve a bunch of problems. The tool isn’t perfect, but it is BETA software and it is free, so I am not complaining. Many, many thanks to the developers.
