  • Hi Lacrymosa,

    Silverlight 2 beta 2 currently doesn't support any form of bitmap effects. The workaround to add bitmap effects to any elements in your Silverlight app, for example, a drop shadow, you would have to manually create the shadow of the UI element, and export it as an image, and place it within your silverlight application as an image.

    If you're using Expression Design, all you need to do is copy and paste it to Expression Blend (make sure that your clipboard is set to Silverlight XAML), and it will automatically convert the bitmapeffect to a seperate image.

    Hope this clears things up.
