  • Silverlight Unit Testing and the Incorrect CLR Problem

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 14, 2010 (3 weeks ago)
    Tags: Unit Testing , Frameworks , Nunit , Ray Booysen
    Ray Booysen has a short blog post in which he discusses the differences of the unit testing frameworks available in Silverlight.

    With a properly architected Silverlight application, unit testing should come naturally. Using a pattern like MVVM, testing the view models should become second nature.

    However, you need to be aware of the differences of the unit testing frameworks available. The Silverlight Unit Testing Framework (isn’t that acronym brilliant) works well as an in-browser framework. Couple this with StatLite and you even can have a headless mode running.

    Jesse Graupmann presents Artefact Animator - live and open source for Silverlight and WPF, like Tweener for Flash. 

    ImageArtefact Animator provides an easy to use framework for procedural time-based animations in Silverlight and WPF. Download the latest version from

    Inspired by the Flash community and forged out of frustration, Artefact Animator brings to WPF and Silverlight what Tweener has done for Flash. If you’ve ever tried to get into animation in C# you’ll soon realize there are way too many steps to get you where you need to be. The consequences are that developers don’t love to animate UI and designers are limited by what they can animate when working with dynamic content.

    Siyamand Ayubi has developed a plug and play framework to animate page entrance and page exit in the WPF and Silverlight applications similar to the Powerpoint slides.

    Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) supports browser-style navigation that can be used in two types of applications: standalone applications and XAML browser applications (XBAPs). To package content for navigation, WPF provides the Page class [MSDN]. The WPF support of page navigation is very similar to the page navigation in the web. Each page has its own content and each page can contain hyperlinks to point to other pages similar to the web. But unlike the web, WPF has great build in support for animations.

    In this post, Michael S. Scherotter talks about the new Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework. 

    On Monday I gave an hour long presentation to a standing-room-only room at the Microsoft Mix conference in Las Vegas about the new Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework.  I knew there was interest in this but I was overwhelmed by the amount of interest.  I did the presentation in a Microsoft Expression Blend SketchFlow player and posted it online on my personal web site at

    Brad Abrams wants to give you a very simple introduction to MEF and how to use it in Silverlight.

    This example will show how to use lose coupling, dependency injection and delay loading of components.   This is also an update to my Simple MEF example from a few months ago as just about everything here applies to WPF, WinForms and ASP.NET apps as well.

  • Building a Presentation Framework with Prism for Silverlight

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 14, 2009 (10 months ago)
    John Papa talks about building a presentation framework with Prism.

    Ward Bell and I have been chatting about our thoughts and exchanging ideas on how we handle our own presentation frameworks. In an effort to get on the same page with the world, we have conformed to using some common terminology because frankly when it comes to patterns and frameworks we technology people are horrible at being clear. How much can we all take of acronyms and funky named patterns can we take?

    Jeff Wilcox is pleased to announce that the Silverlight Unit Test Framework received honorable mention at the Microsoft Engineering Excellence awards ceremony and now he wants to tell you something more about this tool.

    The Silverlight Unit Test Framework is a simple unit and functional test system specially designed for Silverlight, building on existing desktop unit testing knowledge and metadata. You’ll find the test framework inside of the Silverlight Toolkit’s source code package, and in use in a lot of places.

  • Fluent Silverlight – Part 1

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jun 02, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    Gabriel Schenker and Ray Houston want to introduce a new framework which provides a fluent interface to Microsoft Silverlight.

    As we have been able to leverage a lot of OSS software in the past we found that it is time to give something back to the community too. This was the birth of the OSS project we call “Fluent Silverlight”. The code is publicly available and is hosted by Google Code. It can be found here.
