This tutorial series will focus on developing WP7 applications which require a long running TCP-connection that sends and receives text-based data. In these posts we will go through of building a complete IRC-client.

    Visual Studio LightSwitch allows you to create Group extensions. A Group extension allows you to specify the layout of controls contained in the group.

    Microsoft has an article, Walkthrough: Creating a Stack Panel Control Extension, that covers the basics of creating a Stack Panel extension for LightSwitch. That article creates an extension that preforms the same functionality as the Rows Layout control that comes in LightSwitch. This article will cover creating an extension that groups controls in a border with a shadow.

    Unni and I discuss some of the new features of Expression Blend 4, and I walk through a demo creating a photo viewer application using some of these new features. I've gotten some requests for the code, which I'm posting. I've attached both the original projects that I started the demos with, as well as the final version after the demo.

    I wanted to create a series of blog post that gets right to the point and is aimed specifically at Silverlight Developers. The most important things I want this series to answer is :

    • What is it? 
    • Why do I care?
    • How do I do it?

    In this post, Chris Koenig explains some of the changes made to the new OData stack which includes an update to the library for Windows Phone 7, and also shows you how to adapt your application to use the new library.

    Yesterday at PDC10, Scott Guthrie demonstrated a Windows Phone 7 application that he was building using Silverlight. During this time, he mentioned that a new OData stack had been released for .NET which included an update to the library for Windows Phone 7. Now you might think that this was just a regular old upgrade – you know… bug fixes, optimizations, etc. It was, but it also signaled a rewrite of the existing CTP that had been available for Windows Phone 7.

    In the last article I spend some time with you in discussing some Text related enhancements for Developers in Silverlight 5. Today I am going to discuss one more feature of Silverlight 5 in this short post.

    Requirement : We need a mechanism to identify count of multiple mouse clicks made by user.

    Scenario : Some over enthusiast end users,if the transaction/process is not happening then they always hit button/any other UI control with high enthusiasm (or sometimes anger) several amount of time, Some time these unnecessary clicks becomes headache and sometimes it is useful to trigger some business function as well. So there is good side and bad side of this.

    Peter Kuhn, aka Mister Goodcat, released part 3 from his mini-series in Silverlight 5. In this post he discussed Markup extensions.

    Even though all Silverlight developers are using markup extensions all the time, a lot of them are not aware of what they actually are. The XAML parser is able to convert attribute values (strings) into objects. With markup extensions, the parser can be advised to reference an already existing object somewhere else for this. For example, the StaticResource Markup Extension uses a key to evaluate a reference to a resource defined in a resource dictionary. The Binding Markup Extension creates an expression to defer the evaluation until run time, so the actual property value can be retrieved by using the data context. In this post we'll take a look at how you can create your own extensions in Silverlight 5 and what the limitations are.

    The SketchFlow Template for Windows Phone 7 adds a new SketchFlow template for Expression Blend* users that makes creating a prototype of a Windows Phone app quick and easy.

    * Please note: To use the SketchFlow Template for Windows Phone 7 you need to be using Blend 4 with SketchFlow enabled (this is the version of Blend that comes with both Expression Studio 4 Ultimate and Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate) you also need to have the Mango developer tools for Windows Phone installed.

    Posting from Las Vegas: Microsoft is promoting Windows Phone here at the Consumer Electronics Show with a publicity stunt that mixes competition with good-natured humiliation. And so far it’s working out pretty well for the company.

    At the company’s CES booth, Ben Rudolph of the Windows Phone team is challenging users of other smartphones to duels in which they race him to complete everyday tasks such as checking the weather, posting to Facebook and Twitter, and snapping/sharing a photo. Anyone who beats him gets 100 bucks.
