    In my last article I showed you how easily Silverlight can interact with the HTML DOM. Not only you can execute JavaScript functions from your Silverlight application, but you can also call Silverlight methods from JavaScript. This functionality enables you to create very powerful applications.

    As you already know Silverlight runs in a sandbox. This is a special “place” limited for security reasons. It is part of the browser, so Silverlight runs in the browser. Here are some of the limitations of Silverlight:

    • You have no direct access to the local resources like printers.

    Silverlight 2 has a couple of useful controls, which you can use when building your own applications. This collection of controls is extended by Silverlight Toolkit. It contains really great controls like Expander, AutoCompleteBox, TreeView, etc. You can download the Silverlight Toolkit from its site or you can see the online demo.

    Imagine that you want to create a questionnaire. A questionnaire consists of questions and a list of possible answers for each question. In most occasions you are supposed to select just an answer.

    Silverlight helps for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). It runs in the context of the browser. There is an isolated area, called sandbox, which holds the Silverlight application. But why is it necessary to restrict the Silverlight applications in such a way? The answer of this question is pretty simple - because of the security. Running such applications locally is dangerous. They may damage your computer or your data. So, there is a necessity to somehow restrict them. Thus, a Silverlight application runs in the sandbox.

    Short Introduction to the RIAs World

    Nowadays the web space is full of different sites. Old-fashioned HTML is slowly being replaced by the new Rich Internet Applications (RIA). But why are they so popular? The passion of the RIA technology is that it tends to reform the static HTML sites in order to make them look more like Desktop applications.

    Why Silverlight?

    Silverlight applications make it easy to perform a lot of actions. One of its greatest capabilities is to work with Web Services.

    I am a great fan of Silverlight. I have never liked 1.0, but when version 2.0 was released I was very amazed. I created a few solitaire games. Now I decided to create a new game and to describe the problems I have encountered to you. First I decided to write an article about creating a Silverlight application for Facebook. But subsequently I decided to divide the article in two parts – creating a Silverlight application, which is a game in this occasion, and integrating it in Facebook.
    I am going to create a game, called Cows & Bulls. You play that game for time. It supports a list of all players and their time.
