Mohamed tells us a tale about building Storyboard shapes

Automation Planet - Storyboard Shapes Authoring Tool – Visual Studio 2012

In this post I will describe everything about the Storyboard Authoring Tool, so let’s see the Agenda, you can also see the following Step-By-Step video for the whole post :


In this post I will try to answer the following questions:

  • What is the Storyboard Authoring Tool?
  • Why use the Storyboard Authoring Tool?
  • How to use Storyboard Authoring Tool?
  • A demo on how to create Storyboard with and without Storyboard Authoring Tool.





I using the Visual Studio 2012 Storyboard feature for the first time this past week and I'm sold. I had to laugh when my customer/user  thought it was a snap shot of a working app. From first run to having a cool looking series of screens was hours and most of that was solid creation time (and not tool learning time). It's simple, easy and lets you draw out nice looking prototype screens in no time. And we're talking screens for Desktop apps, web, phones, etc.

Shapes are the key in this process. And while there are a number of them already in the Visual Studio Gallery for Storyboard Shapes, creating our own is a logical next step. Mohamed's post provides you some great info on doing just that...
