    This blog post provides step-by-step instructions for creating a user control, which exposes bindable properties, in WPF and Silverlight. The post covers dependency properties, and how to manage DataContext inheritance.

    When building user interfaces you will often find yourself repeating the same UI patterns across your application. After all, users like to be presented with a consistent interface, so re-use makes sense. The WPF and Silverlight frameworks provide custom controls and user controls as a mechanism for re-using blocks of UI elements. [...]

    According to Neowin, Microsoft has begun pushing out Windows Phone 7740. Current "Mango" release is of course 7720 making this a minor but still interesting update to the OS. Not to mention a completely unexpected and unannounced OS update. According to the changelog, it fixes two issues
    • Exchange 2003 email support -- an issue we first reported and verified here at WPCentral
    • Voicemail notification issues

    In this post David Anson discusses the new Silverlight/WPF Data Visualization Development release and updates his DataVisualizationDemos sample project.

    As with previous Data Visualization Development Releases, I've updated to the most recent Toolkit code. And like last time, the Silverlight Toolkit shipped most recently so the code in the new Development Release is identical to what just went out with the Silverlight 3/4 Toolkits. However, people using Data Visualization on WPF 3.5 or 4 can take advantage of the latest changes by updating to the binaries included with this Development Release or by compiling the corresponding code themselves.

    Adam Kinney announces that the first sections of the new Flash to Silverlight Guide are now ready.

    The purpose of this guide is to familiarize developers and designers with Silverlight concepts by relating them to Flash concepts. Comparisons are drawn between each pair of concepts in effort to map knowledge from one platform to another.

    In this article Al Pascual discusses what happens if you just configure IIS to access Windows Authentication and would the request from Silverlight for the clientaccesspolicy.xml or the crossdomain.xml file are being requested with your Windows Authentication over a few firewalls.

    If integrated Windows authentication fails, due to improper user credentials or some other problem, the browser will prompt the user to enter their user name and password.

    So if is Silverlight requesting that file protected by Integrated Windows authentication in a background thread, the browser will not display the prompt, therefore, Silverlight won’t access that resource and your application will fail miserably.

    John Papa announced that his article on building a guitar chord calculator with Silverlight was just published by Simple-Talk. You may also check the CodePlex source and the Demo.

    One of the advantages of using Silverlight is that it can be used to build any type of application, including games. As well as spending a lot of time building varying types of business applications and writing a book that focuses on building data driven applications, I’ve also spent time building less traditional and more fun programs with Silverlight. Regardless of the type of application and its requirements, there are some key aspects of Silverlight development that apply. This article explains how to apply some common and widely-used aspects of Silverlight to build a guitar chord finder.

    At MIX10, Pete Brown caught up with Emil Stoychev from SilverlightShow to talk about the new corporate website of CompletIT.

    ImageCreating your whole website using Silverlight isn't usually the approach you'll take--unless you happen to be a company specializing in Silverlight development.

    At MIX10, I caught up with Emil Stoychev, founder of SilverlightShow. His company, CompletIT, located in Sofia, Bulgaria, created a very slick animated website entirely in Silverlight. It has everything from background animation, to cool folding effects, to a full portfolio to...flying pigs!

    Jaime Rodriguez has posted a list of some useful migration tips for moving between the Windows Phone April CTP and the beta release.

    There were a good number of breaking changes and new features introduced in the “beta” release of the Windows Phone Developer Tools. 

    Going forward from beta to RTM; the number of breaking changes will be minimal, so let’s just “buckle up” and migrate our code this once. 

    The migration is a lot easier than it sounds. I will first walk through the obvious breaking changes that the compiler will catch, and then share tips and workarounds in some of that ‘missing’ stuff that the compiler will miss.

    In part 1 of this series I described the basics of creating classes from a JSON string and then simply deserializing the string into a (list of) classes. That way, you don’t have all the hooplah of SOAP, but still have strongly-typed classes in your client app. But beware, there is no formal contract either, so on a beautiful morning you might start to think that either you had too much of a drink yesterday evening, or that the company providing the data feed for your app indeed has started to sell Windows Phone 7 devices made by Sony, with a 65” screen.

    Open source version of Xceed Ultimate ListBox for Silverlight released on CodePlex.

    Most Silverlight listboxes feel sluggish with remote data, which is increasingly prevalent and important. But thanks to an innovative background data retrieval engine that uses virtualization, optimized network communication, and a top-to-bottom asynchronous architecture, the listbox interface—and therefore your app—is always responsive.
