    Rene Schulte has posted a simple extension method, which logs an object to the console.log.

    Most of you will know that a Silverlight application runs in the Browser and Console.WriteLine() doesn’t work. During the development process you could use System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine() to write messages to Visual Studio’s Output window. But what if an application is deployed and no Visual Studio is nearby and you just want simple Console output and not a logging framework like Clog, where a web service is involved?

    Ork Pad has written a new post in which he goes through the Officer demo app and also shows the use, design, and customization aspects of Navigation Containers.

    In my recent post I went through various design aspects of nRoute Containers, albeit without a single line of code - as a counter, I showed a demo specifically for Containers dubbed Office® 2010 (or more correctly Officer 2010). In this post I'll go through the Officer demo app, and like with my previous "step in" post, I'll enumerate various items in a point-by-point fashion, relating them to Container related use and design concerns.

    This week Microsoft published the latest issue of the Expression Newsletter and Joel Neubeck was asked to contribute the fifth of a six part series of articles on exploring the process of designing and building a casual online game in Silverlight.

    If you have not seen the newsletter its a great series of articles focused on using Silverlight and the Expression tools to create amazing rich interactive solutions.

    Unni announces that his team has completely re-designed the Asset Library for Blend 3.

    Registering your own library (or sets of libraries) in the asset tool is very simple. All you have to do is to setup a registry key that points to a folder containing the libraries.

    Here is a sneak peak into some of the new features that Unni and his team are adding to Blend 3 in the upcoming release.

    The last few weeks (or months) have been really hectic! We finally finished all the features that we wanted to add to Blend 3, and are now actively fixing all the feedback (read bugs and crashes :)) that you have been reporting to us, as well as making performance tweaks to the product to make things work really well end-to-end. Please keep the feedback coming - we really appreciate it.

    Kirupa Chinnathambi will answer the question how a WPF or Silverlight project that uses Blend-specific features will work when opened on a machine that does not have Blend installed.

    The Blend 3 SDK is a free (and lightweight) installer that places common components such as Behaviors into a general location that other applications like Visual Studio can access. This gives you the ability to open and edit projects created or modified by Blend without having to have Blend installed on your computer.

    Igor Ostrovsky found that some browser features do not extend into Silverlight apps and decided to go over the affected browser features one by one, and discuss ways of getting them working.

    Silverlight 2 is an awesome platform for development of rich web applications. One issue to be aware of, though, is that some browser features do not extend into Silverlight apps. For example, the Back and Forward browser buttons do not always work as the user may expect with Silverlight apps. The set of browser features you’ll miss in Silverlight apps is pretty much identical to what you’d miss in Flash or AJAX, and some of them are about to be addressed in the Silverlight 3 release.

    Steve Strong discusses the application that he used during his travel around the country and how he profits by Silverlight and the Virtual Earth module.

    One of the goals of the trip was to fieldtest technology, including the Virtual Earth Silverlight control. You can see the MIX09 presentation here at http://videos.visitmix.com/MIX09/T34F

    So you might be thinking, why not just do this from home? I believe that you can see the issues more clearly if you put yourself into the situations in which you expect the software to be used. After all, Pixar animators traveled to South America as inspiration for the movie "UP", and traveled along Route 66 in preparation for the movie "Cars".

    Cristian Merighi has posted about Perspective 3D and Trackball Behavior.

    Silverlight 3 Beta brings along, as we all know, many new possibilities in terms of graphics rendering and assets' management if compared with its previous version. With this article I aim to describe a couple of these brand new features and, at the same time, to provide some "useful" code (at least I'll try).

    Tags:   SilverBullet

    Timmy Kokke introduces SilverBullet™, a small snippet of Silverlight, a class or namespace hidden in the Silverlight .NET framework, to help you out in times of need. In this first SilverBullet™, Timmy would like to give you the Environment class.

    It’s in the System namespace and provides information about the environment your application is running in. Use it to get information about the system, like command-line arguments, version of the CLR and the time the system is running.  Some properties and methods in this class are used internally and can cause security risks. These properties and methods will throw an MethodAccessException. All properties are static.
