    HyperPanel for WPF and Silverlight is a StackPanel that provides an automatic zoom effect for items near the mouse. You can place any elements in the panel to achieve carousel-like effects and display a large number of elements in a relatively small container, without using scrollbars. The resulting effect is similar to the system toolbar (dock) seen in Mac OS X.

    Make the most of HyperPanel for WPF and Silverlight by taking advantage of the following key features:

    HyperPanel for WPF and Silverlight allows you to display a large number of items in a small space. Items far from the mouse are shrunk and don’t take up much space.

    Determine how much zooming should be applied when the mouse moves over the panel. Use the Distribution property to control the strength of the zoom effect.

    Use the MinElementScale property to prevent items from getting too small.

    Use the ApplyOpacity property to make elements near the mouse opaque. Items far from the mouse become more transparent, conveying an idea of distance.
