    After some testing, I see a bug with reflection. Seems like at first when the images are being loaded for the first time, I get a white area as reflection, because the images were not present. If I wait and then switch to another page and then back again to CF page, the reflection will appear, because the images are in memory and the reflection can use them.

    My suggestion is to see when an images is loaded first before attempting to show the reflection.

    Thanks!

    Hi Ben,

    Actually this problem required a great deal of time. We spent a couple of days researching and trying to find the best solution, and it seems that instead of using an image that is flipped to show the reflection, it would be better to use the Effect feature of the Silverlight 3 to introduce a shader effect. The effect will represent a reflection and will get rid of the issue we face now with updating the reflection at the proper time. Stay tuned for our official release as we will do our best to release another great version of this control.

    Kind regards,

    Excellent solution. I had run into this issue before (regarding image not being loaded) and drove me crazy. And that's how I knew this is causing you trouble.

    What I've done in my sample, I loaded the images first in another page, so when you go to Coverflow, you'll see the reflection. Just a temporary work around. But I'm happy with your new solution.
