    Take a look at this article in which Kunal Chowdhury demonstrates a step-by-step tutorial on opening a Microsoft Excel book followed by data sharing between the Silverlight application and the Excel Sheet.

    Here we will use a DataGrid which will load some customer information. Then we will pass the data to the Excel Sheet and then we will modify the data in the external application (i.e. inside the Excel sheet). You will see that, the modified data will reflect automatically to the Silverlight Application.

    In his latest video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso demonstrates how to add multiple bitmap effects to one object.

    In response to my Twitter buddy Funwithcoding I made this post: In Silverlight you can only add one BitmapEffect (Blur or DropShadow) to one object at a time. But these effects are passed down to their child objects (inheritance).  For that reason we can use a little trick and apply multiple effects to one object (or so it appears).

    In this tutorial, Laurent Duveau shows you how to theme your Silverlight application and to allow the user to switch themes dynamically.

    It’s been a while since Silverlight Toolkit has Theming support, but with the April 2010 version and the new features of Silverlight 4 it is now easier than ever to apply those themes.

    What you need to know:

    • ImplicitStyleManager was removed from the Toolkit, this is because implicit styles are now supported in Silverlight 4.
    • The Toolkit has now a Theme control to apply Themes on your pages.
    • Also a ContextMenuService and ContextMenu control that can allow the user to switch Themes at runtime in this scenario.

    Akash Kava has published his presentation from NeuroSpeech about advanced data form with new form layout for Silverlight and WPF.

    Here at NeuroSpeech, we figured out the problem with forms based business applications that frustrates developers and change management is not only time consuming but its quite boring job to do.

    Although WPF/Silverlight does offer very customizable UI designing platform but when we go on the field to develop ling of business applications, we realize that initial development hardly takes any time but maintenance is very difficult.

    In this post, Michael Washington talks about a tool called DataStore provided by Microsoft Expression Blend 4 and in order to demonstrate it he makes a number guessing program with no code.

    It is a very powerful tool for Designers to create functionality in Expression Blend without writing any code. To demonstrate some of it's abilities, I created a number guessing program with no code.

    On the Robust Haven site there is a great, very detailed post explaining Isolated Storage and how to use it in Silverlight with a generic repository.

    Isolated storage is a file system. It is called "isolated" because it is rooted to a specific directory which provides the sandbox required for browser security. [...]

    Creating a base generic repository allowed me to centralize common IsolatedStorageFile operations that would be needed any time I wanted to save, retrieve, or delete any type of object from Isolated Storage in my application while still being strongly typed.

    Chris De Herrera has wrote some wonderful FAQs about Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 7 Hardware and Development under Windows Phone 7. Please, note that the information is not up to date, but nothing has been changed. Chris De Herrera definitely spent a lot of energy to summarize all that information in the FAQs. They are not so comprehensive, but at least can give you some basic answers about Windows Phone 7.

    Take a look at these FAQs at the following link: http://www.pocketpcfaq.com/faqs/Windows_Phone_7/

    Rik Henderson spotted a prototype of a fully working LG Panther at Microsoft's demo and made some pictures. The demo is showing the latest build of Windows Phone 7 on LG Panther. He noticed that the OS is working very smoothly on this device. Rik is also impressed by the software integration in Windows Phone 7, like the integration of the contacts with facebook and others. There is no Xbox Live support yet, but this is expected to be implemented into a later build of the OS.

    So this article shows not only the LG Panther Phone, but some new information about the OS, too.

    Stuart Miles has wrote an article named "Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Series - All you need to know". Although this article has been written about 2 months ago and some of the information has been changed since then, there is a lot of helpful stuff. For example, here you can learn when the OS will be out, will you be able to bring Windows Phone 7 OS to your current phone and so much more.

    The full story can be found at http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/32157/windows-phone-7-series-faq

    Keep in mind that I'll write 10 articles about Windows Phone 7 in the next weeks. They will be more detailed and will be based on the latest information about Windows Phone 7.
