    Silverlight 2

    If you don't know Ian Griffiths, you should.  He's the co-author of my favorite WPF book (with Chris Sells)*.  Ian has a great post today that details a bug with the Silverlight 2 Cross Domain Policy file.  It seems that the Flash crossdomain.xml file is working, but the Silverlight policy file is broken.  Take a read if you are doing cross-domain and pulling out your hair...its a great tip.

    * Sure, I wrote the WPF/E appendix but that's not what I prefer it.


  • Maybe Socket Bug in Policy Code in Silverlight 2 beta 1

    1 comments  /  aggregated from  Michael's Blog  on  Mar 08, 2008 (more than a year ago)   /   original article

    In my last post I wrote about how you can use sockets in Silverlight 2 beta 1. Well, when publishing my application to a Internet domain the code didn't work. I always get a socket exception: error code 10013, access denied. I have put an example online at

    I'm following up with the people who wrote the policy code and see what's going on here. You'll get a message here on my blog when there is a fix for the source code or a work-around.

  • Silverlight 1.1's BrowserHttpWebRequest Bug

    0 comments  /  aggregated from  theADOguy  on  Dec 11, 2007 (more than a year ago)   /   original article

    While playing with Astoria and Silverlight today, I found a problem with the WebRequest Headers.  Luckily, Pablo Castro in the ADO.NET Team at Microsoft was there to set me straight.  I wanted to warn everyone of this bug in case it bites you:

    The BrowserHttpWebRequest.Accept property is improperly mapped to another HTTP header.  So both of these examples won't work the way you expect:

    HttpWebRequest req = new BrowserHttpWebRequest(theUri);
    req.Accept = "application/json"; // Bugged
    req.Headers[HttpRequestHeader.Accept] = "application/json"; // Bugged


    To get around this problem, use the weakly typed Header collection:

    HttpWebRequest req = new BrowserHttpWebRequest(theUri);
    req.Headers["accept"] = "application/json"; // Works


    Thanks again Pablo!

  • Silverlight 1.1 Tools Alpha - VS Orcas Beta 2 to VS2008 RTM migration issues

    1 comments  /  aggregated from  Emil Stoychev's Blog on ASP.NET, AJAX and Silverli  on  Dec 04, 2007 (more than a year ago)   /   original article

    Last week Silverlight 1.1 Tools Alpha for VS 2008 RTM were released and as a developer working with Silverlight I run to install them on my fresh new copy of VS 2008 RTM. The installation went without any problems, but unfortunately after trying to create a new Silverlight project (same for class library) I got a popup error saying:

    "The project file 'C:\Users\estoychev\AppData\Local\Temp\zhxiyguv.4rr\Temp\SilverlightProject1.csproj' cannot be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation."

  • Microsoft Won't Fix Simple Silverlight-Expression Bug?

    0 comments  /  aggregated from (Shawn Wildermuth)  on  Nov 28, 2007 (more than a year ago)   /   original article
    The problem stems from the fact that Silverlight uses a completely different attribute for determining how a media file plays in an MediaElement than does WPF does. I can't imagine why its different but it is: ...

    This has been coming up a lot on the forums, and two times already I've seen discussions about this. Once in my inbox and once in a Silverlight group.

    The best explanation I've seen so far was from Tim Heuer, and I don't think he'll be upset if I quote him here:

    "Let me try to help. If you have 1.1 installed, then it is not auto updating (only the RC is autoupdating). There has been a lot of confusion out there with people thinking “well, I have both.” – you really can only have one installed (quick test at
