Printing in Silverlight 3.0 using WritableBitmap

It is possible to print reports or other things in Silverlight when you use the new features of the Silverlight 3.0.  The feature you need is called WritableBitmapGill Cleeren wrote a nice sample about how to print in Silverlight 3.0.  You can read and test it on his blog.  You can also do other nice stuff with a WritableBitmap like creating your own flashy bitmaps.  René Schulte has a good blogpost about creating effects and doing a performance test.

I also created an application to take screen shots using the WritableBitmap class.  I showed this demo on the Community Day 2009 and you can download it here.
