Element Binding in Silverlight 3.0

Binding control elements one with the other is a very powerful tool that can reduce writing code. Now with Silverlight 3 which is in beta this is easy. There are many examples wherein the values of a given element would depend on the setting of another control and binding elements would reduce the amount of code to be written otherwise. Although the code for the example chosen would have been very small, it could be substantial in other cases. 

This tutorial shows how to set the date on a date picker control that would display the date in a text box. Although the example by itself quite trivial, it brings out the essentials of element binding. In order to test this you need to have Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and Silverlight 3.0 installed on your machine.
