#186 – When to Use Blend (vs. Visual Studio)
January 14, 2011 2 Comments
You could develop your entire application using only Visual Studio. Actually, you could develop an application without Visual Studio, using your editor of choice to write the code and command line tools to build your application.
- Use Visual Studio to write and debug code
- Use Blend to create or edit layout of visual elements in your application
While you can use Visual Studio to do layout and you can use Blend to edit code, Visual Studio is better at working with code and Blend is better at working with layout.
