    The comments on the previous post got met re-reading the existing documentation for METRO Style Apps. It appears the content of http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps is quite different when you follow the HTML5/CSS/JS path from when you follow the C++/C#/VB/XAML path. Both are far from complete and one has more complete details on specific subjects than the other. For example, the part where controls are redesigned is much more complete in the XAML section, but the general UI guidelines is more complete in the HTML5 section…

    Michael Washington explains how to create closed captioning with Silverlight 3.Image

    This is another one of my “this blog post is not really about what this blog post is about”. Yes, I will deliver on what the title promises, but creating closed captaining with Silverlight is actually very easy. The thing that took me so much time to put together, was implementing a “MVVM like” pattern and have a code behind that has no application logic.

    Mike Taulty has dedictaed a post to one of the new classes of Silverlight 3 - the SystemColors.

    Now, the SystemColors class is nice but it just has a bunch of static properties on it and nor is there any kind of change notification present when the user changes them.

    So…I figure it’s not a major loss if the user has to refresh the browser (or perhaps click a Silverlight UI button) to tell the Silverlight application that they have changed their theme. It’s liveable.

    With that in mind, I set about exposing some of those static properties on SystemColors as non-static properties so that they can be used from XAML.

    It has been a while since the latest version of Silverlight Spy was released so Koen Zwikstra decided to start working on Silverlight Spy 3 again. In this post he shares some details on this new version.

    In this new version Silverlight Spy gets a major (and with that I mean MAJOR) overhaul. What you can expect:

    • A completely redesigned UI for easier access to all aspects of a Silverlight application. The current Windows Forms application is ported to a true WPF application. Various new UI features are simply too hard to implement in the current Windows Forms model.
    • Immediate window for debugging, evaluating expressions, execute statements, and so forth. [...]

    Read original post by Joe Binder at Visual Studio LightSwitch Team Blog

    We are thrilled to announce our upcoming support for building cross-browser, mobile web clients with Visual Studio LightSwitch! The new HTML5 and JavaScript-based client is an important companion to our Silverlight-based desktop client that addresses the increasing need to build touch-oriented business applications that run well on modern mobile devices.

    When we began work on Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011, we wanted to create a tool that made business application development much easier by abstracting the technology decisions and interactions that make building rich, secure, and relevant business applications so difficult. Our first iteration focused on the fundamentals—an N-Tier application composed of a rich desktop, data-centric client and cloud-ready middle-tier that contained the application’s core business logic. Silverlight was the natural choice for our desktop client because we wanted to offer modern, highly interactive UI that made data-centric tasks easy.

    In this next video of the series Jeff Brand takes a look at using PRISM events to publish and subscribe to events. Before you watch it you may want to check the previous parts of "Building a Composite WPF Application": Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6Part 7 and Part 8

    Previous versions of the application have used .NET events and event handlers to communicate UI events between presenters. We know use PRISM events in conjunction with WPF Commands (introduced earlier) to notify various parts of the application that something important has happened.

    Rene Schulte has been testing multiple implementations of dynamic bitmap images in Silverlight. He's posted his learnings along with the source code explaining how his test harness works.

    Two weeks ago I wrote the Silverlight 3 WriteableBitmap Performance blog post and got some good response on it. One of it came from the author of Quakelight, Julien Frelat. He contacted and asked me if I had tested his PNG wrapper technique, which is used in the Silverlight port of the famous game Quake. I thought Quakelight uses the WriteableBitmap and not a custom Stream hack, so I haven’t considered to check it for the Speedtest.

    Mark Monster has published part one of a series on building an OpenID user control in Silerlight.

    More and more I see sites supporting OpenID as Authentication mechanism. I’m for example a user of sites like: I need to read this, Get Satisfaction and Google Login more or less.

    To support my own family I set up OpenID on my own domain, http://openid.mymonster.nl/ hosted by MyOpenID. This just works like a charm. For the purpose of this article I created a test identity at my MyOpenID. I suggest everyone doing development for openid connectivity to create a test identity, I don’t want to mess with my real OpenID identity.

    Gavin Wignall has created a nice Storyboard animation using Expression Blend.

    There are two ways to animate in Silverlight, through storyboards and through code. Expression Blend offers extensive help in creating Storyboard animations. Silverlight animation is time based not frame based, this means that your animation will benefit from running at the maximum frame rate that the users machine will allow. Multiple storyboards can be created and run at the same time, but for the purpose of this basic tutorial we will create a single storyboard.
