Telerik, a very talented company that mostly creates resources for the Microsoft products, is sharing a set of 3 free Silverlight controls: Book, Gauge and TileView.

They are natively built on top of Silverlight 4 and have the capabilities of the platform, such as clipboard integration, right-click support, multi-touch support and more.


Silverlight Book Control

A "page turning” component to offer an experience like browsing a real book. The flip animations are smooth for better user experience.


Gauge Silverlight Component

A great component for dashboards or any other place to use graphical indicators.

It has a rich collection of circular, linear and numeric gauge types with powerful customization capabilities.


TileView Silverlight

The control enables users to interactively browse through the different panes with rich information.

They can be expanded, collapsed or rearranged panes to achieve the best layout they need.

TileView component offers built-in animations, drag-and-drop rearrangement of its tiles and full control over the different tiles states.

Silverlight, which is used in more websites everyday, has several beautiful free controls, components & tools that will help you develop websites faster & better.

They are not very easy to find as they are hidden inside the blogs of Silverlight developers or .NET products websites & there are still not so many resources where you can read about Silverlight.

WebResourcesDepot have collected these free Silverlight controls, components & tools to help making your websites brighter.
