Video slider control
The updated Slider control in Silverlight 2 Beta 2 burned a number of developers, including myself. I relied heavily on the MouseLeftButtonDown and MouseLeftButtonUp events that are now handled by the Slider. Another feature lacking in the Slider is the ability to show the amount of content downloaded. This is a pretty standard feature of web based video players. Time to call the CustomControl to write a new Slider that enables you do both clicking on the slider track which moves the Thumb to the clicked location and adding a download progress indicator.
Here is the resulting control:
The control is on CodePlex (Download the code).
