Xaml Vector Icon Library
WPF offers the potential to scale any part of your user interface to user preferences. Replace your bitmaps with vector art, provide some sizing options for your UI, and you are golden.
New Xaml Vector Icon Library Available
They are also selling a bunch of other xaml vector icons: world flags, files and folders, documents, etc…
This is the first comprehensive set of xaml icon files I’ve seen…seems like they also offer bitmap, photoshop, illustrator, freehand, or flash.
How does Blend offer scaling of the UI
Tools/Options in Microsoft Expression Blend provides the "Workspace zoom" value, which can be changed via typing or by clicking in the box and moving the mouse up or down.
Opening the icons in WPF/E
The icon I tried in WPF/E Feb 2007 CTP needed a few minor tweaks to work happily.
- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> couldn’t be present
- The first line couldn’t be blank
- MarkupCompatibility namespace (created by Blend) had to be removed.
We should be able to improve those things…
