    The first part of the article was about getting familiar with MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) – to get to know the basics, define its core principles and apply those to an existing Gallery application to make it configurable through themes. This part will dig deeper into the framework.

    MEF as an IoC Container?

    MEF is not a replacement for an IoC container - they both address different scenarios and can be used in the same application. However, MEF sure can be used for dependency injection without having to resort to a proper IoC container.

    One of my early experiments with Bing Maps Silverlight Control eventually turned into a Halloween Live Gallery. This photo viewer application is based on the CircularPanel3D control from Expression Blend’s Wall3D sample that shipped with the product. It pulls geotagged Halloween photos from Flickr service and displays them in a 3D photo wall that can be rotated, zoomed in, etc. A detailed view of the photo includes a zoomable Bing Maps control, pinpointing the location of where that photo was shot.

    Whenever a new version of Silverlight is released, I start examining its features from two perspectives: how would my current (and planned) LOB applications benefit from using these new features, and what cool new things can I build to entertain my children.

    This article will guide you through the process of creating a doodling application (you know, for kids ;)), while covering some of the most visible (or not) new features, coming with Silverlight 4. But this is not just about new features, it’s about how they are prepared and served.

    I don’t generally find the fall or winter an appropriate time to track weather conditions, but this is an exception.

    It was just days before this year’s Halloween when I was searching for those nifty applications that let you play scary sounds directly from your mobile phone; thought that would be a great entertainment for my young daughter.

    And it was.

    Later I decided to create a similar application to run with Silverlight. I knew porting such application to Silverlight would be fairly easy, but the real challenge was in doing it with as less coding as possible. And how exactly do you write an application without writing code, some may ask?


    Expression Blend 3 introduced a new way of adding interactivity to user interface elements, called behaviors.
