I’ve posted a Fireworks to XAML Exporter update on the Infragistics Visual Design Group site. This is a pretty significant update that really fills in a lot of missing pieces, you can almost call the first release a “teaser”. Linear, Radial and Elliptical gradients now export and opacity stops are now merged with color stops in the #AARRGGB syntax. Fireworks groups are now exported as Grids, a feature I’m really excited about. The list of exported filters has also grown: Gaussian Blur, Drop Shadow, Glow and Bevel. The complete list of updates is on the VDG site — check it out!

Fireworks to XAML Custom Panel ScreenshotI’ve posted a Fireworks to XAML Extension on the Infragistics Design Site. It’s definitely not a final release, but is actually working quite well for me. I use Fireworks for practically all of my interface design, so it’s only natural that I would want to carry that work forward to WPF. The Fireworks Javascript API has proven to be a bit tricky at times, but for the most part the translation has been quite straightforward. This extension installs a custom panel that lets you copy selected items directly to the clipboard in XAML format. So take it for a spin and let me know how it works for you. I’ve included a readme file that lists known issues, so be sure and skim through that before sending me a nasty message!
