    In this post, Cheryl Simmons explains how to load a static xml file into your WP7 application.

    Source: Silverlight SDK

    In my application, I have a fair amount of static data that lends itself to an XML file very well…it’s not enough data for a database solution, but too much to hard-code into the app. My goal was to store the info in an xml file and load it into an LINQ XElement. Then I could easily use LINQ queries to get the data I needed into my application. Unfortunately, it took a bit of messing around to figure out how to load this data from the file. Following are the steps I took.

    With this blog post Cheryl Simmons hopes to help you get started with offline help in Visual Studio 2010.

    The new help viewer is installed when you install VS2010. As part of the install process, you should be prompted to install the actual help files for .NET 4 and Visual Studio, but if you didn’t get these files, you still can. Also, by opting to download help, you will get many other choices including Silverlight and Windows Phone.

  • Changing Templates with the Silverlight Designer (and seeing the changes immediately)

    Cheryl Simmons has an example of how to make changes to a control template by using the Silverlight designer and how to immediately see these changes in the template reflected on the design surface.

    Lately I’ve been writing some topics on using the Silverlight designer in Visual Studio 2010 RC to build SL4 apps. One of the features of the designer that I find super cool is the ability to make changes to a control template, and provided you are using that control in your application, see the changes in the template reflected on the design surface right away.
