Orange bug: “Quadrant” & Expression Blend

Orange bug is not a bug :) I’ve tested icon customization in “Quadrant” and my icon has bug shape! How assign “Oslo” model with icon? It’s very simple.

First, you create XAML GeometryPath. For this purpose you can use Microsoft Expression Blend.


Next, you define Viewer Hint with “M”. Compile it and deploy to “Quadrant” repository (details:  Help –> Quadrant Repository Connection).


Finally, you restart “Quadrant” and you see the icon with the type you set in Viewer Hint.

I have defined “Quadrant” extensions for Form instances in my last example: User interface modeling with simple DSL.  You can download  it here.
