Silverlight free controls

We are doing some Silverlight development so I started to look for third party controls to make my webapp look sexy, and came across Martin Grayson’sBlacklight project. Seems Microsoft is investing in developing and releasing quality controls, source code and everything, not tied to the official Silverlight release.

In a nutshell Blacklight’s control are among the best free up to date silverlight controls out there. You can check them out online here. The source code is available for download in the codeplex project site. They make for good examples to learn control development in Silverlight.

I’ve modified the silverlight docking panel to support different docking layouts, you can download the twisted source code here.

By the way if you know of any other good Silverlight control suite let me know.
