Demonstrate creating reusable Silverlight user controls through the creation of a calendar application that generates a calendar with calendar items and tasks with dates that can be relocated and edited via drag and drop. Calendar is populated from a database of tasks and saves back to the database using WCF services and entity framework.

Respond to events of user controls and implementing VisualStateManager to modify the states.
