    Tags:   WCF
    Shawn Wildermuth experienced a problem with Silverlight consuming a WCF Service.

    Sometimes WCF causes me to spew four letter words. There is a class of WCF problems that cause this: connection rejection. WCF has been designed to prevent common DDoS and other attacks that could cause servers to fail or at least not serve honest requests. To this end the default size of a request is quite small. In fact, its usually 64K in size. This size is fine for most every request but occassionally when a client wants to send a collection of things to the server this size is too small.

    The Data Points column of John Papa in the August 2009 issue of MSDN Magazine is now online and in this issue he demonstrates how binary encoding works, the effect it has on an application’s performance, and how it behaves by demonstrating it in action with Silverlight 3.

    Silverlight applications often rely on Web services for their data. The performance of data retrieval and the ability to retrieve meaningful information about exceptions that may occur in Web services are two critical areas that have been improved in Silverlight 3.
    Poor performance can be an application killer. Good strategies for retrieving data from a Web service can help, but sometimes it is necessary to retrieve an object graph that can be huge and take a long time to pass from a Web service to a client. Silverlight 3 offers a new feature that passes data from a Web service using binary encoding, and this can dramatically improve performance when passing large object graphs.

    Tags:   DragSelect , charting
    Ofir Shemesh has posted a new component - drag select an area.

    This all started as a requirement for zooming in a chart, then later I decided to make a component out of it – drag select an area.
    For the end-user it is really simple: click… select an area by dragging… release!

    WinRT XAML supports system-driven spell checking and auto-complete. Built in and right out of the box. The figure shows spell checking at work. Notice the squiggly underlining of the misspelled word, the options to correct or add to the dictionary or ignore.

    You get both spell checking and autocompletion by setting just two properties on the TextBox.

    Today while creating my first CI Build definition in the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, I noticed that, though the Silverlight 5 SDK is installed in the server, I was unable to run the build. It was throwing an error message that says “The Silverlight 4 SDK is not installed”.

    The issue was not actually with the Silverlight SDK and I found the solution after lots of analysis. In this post, I am going to share it so that, if you come across the same issue, it will be helpful.

    Beijing 2008Only one day to the start of the Olympic games 2008 in Beijing. The videos in the official website are delivered by Silverlight and the community expects this to push the plugin into many computers all over the world. All that is pretty cool. As we are part of the community we are also excited about that.

    Let me tell you a secret: SilverlightShow is preparing a damn good application for the Olympic games where you will be able to deep zoom all Olympic games to this moment, see a lot of info about the played disciplines, winners etc. Not only that, but the users will be able to fill in information for the winners in Beijing and as such create a large database which will then be viewable through a nice looking Silverlight interface.

    How cool is that? ;)

    Personally, I can't wait for the start of the games as this will also push out our Silverlight DeepZoom Olympic Show. I won't tell you the address now so you just have to wait for tomorrow ;)

    Stay in touch
