Hi there interwebbers! My name is Kyle and I’m the latest addition to the Mindscape Team.
I’ve never had to write a blog post before so here goes!
I’m a Web Designer, (flash) Game Designer, Gamer, and a Motorcyclist! (best form of travel IMO).
Favorite PC Games: League of Legends all the way across the sky! , WoW(Pandas… seriously???), MW3, Crysis Wars.
Favorite TV Shows: Walking Dead, SGU, Terra Nova, Naruto.
If IÂ wasn’tÂ a web designer I’d be: Â A Cosmologist because space is awesome.

I guess I’m a bit of a nerd, I studied for two years and learnt the web lingo, now I get to show off my skills in attempt to keep JD happy (as well as figure out what colours actually go well with purple?!)
Now back to work on my marquee text tag jQuery plugin…
Hola, I’m Hilary and I’m the newest addition to the Mindscape marketing team. It may come as a shock to some that I am:
1.) Not a male, and
2.) Not a developer, or all that knowledgable on the world of coding (I just had to ask what WPF is…).
However, as the newest member to the Mindscape marketing team, I’ll be needing to pick up some inside knowledge fast. Lucky I have an office full of developers to help me out here, so I can add development tools to my odd array of interests (chemistry, cells, Spanish language, gingerbread people).
I’m already excited to crack the developing code (see what I did there?), and understand more about the realm of .Net – so I think that I must really be a geek. I’m aiming to put my communications degree to good use and do some good communicating about what Mindscape is all about – here it goes!
Hasta Luego – Hilary.

Everyone loves free things! With the recent release of WPF Elements 5 we decided to beef up the free WPF control pack even more. Now in addition to the already free WPF controls you will find 5 professionally built themes to bring your applications to life.
5 superbly crafted themes
We have poured months of effort into creating pixel perfect themes both for the standard WPF controls and the WPF Elements controls. There’s Office Blue, Office Black, Office Silver, Expression (Alloy) and Expression Light (Alloy Light). You’ll be impressed by how easy these themes are to add to your project and your users will be really impressed at how great the application looks.
Autocomplete Text Box for WPF
Autocomplete text boxes are great. We’ve made some great additions to this control recently and it will really help bring your applications up a level. Check out the new multi-value autocomplete box support that was included recently.
Coverflow for WPF
Popularised in iTunes, Coverflow is a unique way of presenting data to your users. Beyond just static images and thanks to the power of WPF you will find you can set any arbitrary content as your covers — images, videos, other WPF controls, whatever you want! We’ve seen some imaginative uses of the Coverflow control over the years. You will be pleased to find everything you need in the box to configure the display exactly as you want it to be.
Prompt Decorator for WPF
This control adds a polish to your applications. Want to have hint text on your text box and drop down lists? Say “Search” appearing in your search box but disappearing when the user clicks in it? It couldn’t be easier with the Prompt Decorator control.
Get the free controls with the WPF Elements 5 installer. You’re welcome to use the controls and themes listed here at no charge, with no royalties.
Just a quick post to announce that our support forums have been upgraded! The last bit of Community Server has been surgically cut out of our website and replaced with a speedy ASP.NET MVC based forum with only the features we need.
Here’s the run down on what’s new:
We hope you find the new faster forums great to use.
There’s undoubtedly some things we’ve missed, and we’re keen to keep improving the support experience, so I’d love to hear your feedback on how you find them. The best place for feedback is probably on this forum thread in particular: http://www.mindscapehq.com/forums/thread/4831
