This is the 8 video by Ken Cox about the development of CRUD application using Silverlight and Visual Basic.NET.

In Episode 8, we continue working with the AutoCompleteBox control that we implemented in Episode 7. This time, we fetch a long list of country names as XML from a third-party Web service, cache the file on the client using isolated storage, and harness LINQ to XML to retrieve the country names. One of the considerations is checking Silverlight's access to the remote data. Finally, you learn how to use (and re-use) a static resource within XAML markup.
I'm currently collecting topics for a ninth episode. My intention is to make it a bug fix screencast based on feedback, so send in those reports! It will likely also cover usability issues like implementing tabs and tooltips.
Make sure you've worked through Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 6 and Episode 7 first.

Sometimes the video might not be available because of some internal problems of the Silverlight streaming services. Please excuse us for the inconvience, we hope that this problem will be fixed very soon.

    Amazing stuff.  Great to watch all the eight videos and can't wait for the next one.  Videos are precise and your speech is very clear and it has helped enormously to understand and start working on silverlight for the first time.  Keep up your good work.
