    In this post, Mike Taulty explores the Reactive Extensions for .NET.

    I’ve been taking a look at the Reactive Extensions for .NET. It’s early days for me at this point but I’m finding what I’m seeing to be really interesting.

    This is code that’s available from the DevLabs and there are versions for .NET 3.5 Sp1, .NET 4.0, Silverlight 3, Silverlight 4 and also for JavaScript.

  • Silverlight and WebSockets

    Mike Taulty was intrigued by a post from Tomek which has links to a prototype of an application built with Silverlight but using WebSockets, so he decided to explore that matter by himself.

    So, traditional sockets are great in that they allow full duplex comms such as when the server wants to notify the client that something has happened but they’re not so great in that they require an open connection which tends to limit your server side scalability. They’re also not so great when it comes to crossing boundaries that only allow HTTP on port 80 or 443.

  • Use Reflector to Determine What .NET Namespaces Are Aliased to Silverlight XAML Namespace

    In this post Walt Ritscher is exploring the Silverlight assemblies with Reflector.

    When you use a XAML element like <Button> in your Silverlight application you get an instance of the System.Windows.Controls.Button class.  Namespace mapping is what links the XAML namespace “xmlns=” in your XAML file with the real .NET namespaces that contain the .NET types.    This mapping is accomplished via the XmlnsDefinitionAttribute class.  At some point in the Silverlight development cycle a programmer at Microsoft decorated the System.Windows assembly with the XmlnsDefinitionAttribute.  Because of that mapping you have access to over a dozen .NET namepaces in your XAML file.

  • A Fiddler Plug-in for Inspecting WCF Binary Encoded Messages

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Dec 22, 2009 (8 months ago)
    Samuel Jack has created a WCF Binary-encoded Message Inspector for Fiddler.

    If ever you're needing to debug the interaction between a Web Service and its clients, Microsoft’s Fiddler is the tool to use - this includes WCF Services so long as they're using a HTTP transport. The only thing Fiddler won't do is decode messages that are sent using WCF's proprietary Binary encoding - until today, that is: at lunch time, I took advantage of Fiddler's neat extensibility mechanism and created a rough-and-ready Inspector that will translate binary messages from gobbledegook to plain xml for your debugging pleasure.

    Mike ormond has posted the deck from a session he delivered recently trying to round-up some of the highlights of the next wave of .NET from a web dev perspective.Image

    There’s not much of a narrative to it but it hits most of the ‘futures’ highlights (with a brief detour into current MVC). Feel free to use any / all of it if you find it useful.

  • Silverlight 4 COM Support and 32/64 bit machines – the C64 Emulator

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Dec 08, 2009 (9 months ago)

    Pete Brown blogged about changes he applied to the Silverlight C64 Emulator that allowed him to use the accelerometer as a joystick.

    My primary development machine at home is still (gasp!) running the 32 bit version of Windows 7. I just haven’t gotten around to paving it to upgrade to 64 bit. My other machines, including my presentation laptop, are all running 64 bit.

    Prior to PDC, I had made some significant changes to the Silverlight C64 emulator. I added sound, started to add a touch-enabled user interface, fixed up some minor perf issues etc. One of the changes was to enable access to the Windows 7 device API in order to use the accelerometer as a joystick.
