    Dan Wahlin had the opportunity to work on several real-world Silverlight Line of Business (LOB) applications years and wanted to put together a list of some of the key things he has learned as well as key problems he has encountered and resolved.

    There are several different topics I could cover related to "lessons learned" (some of them were more painful than others) but I'll keep it to 5 items for this post and cover additional lessons learned in the future. The topics discussed were put together for a TechEd talk:

    1. Pick a Pattern and Stick To It
    2. Data Binding and Nested Controls
    3. Notify Users of Successes (and failures)
    4. Get an Agent – A Service Agent
    5. Extend Existing Controls


  • Advanced Data Form and Easiest Change Management with AtomForm

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jun 01, 2010 (1 week ago)
    Akash Kava has published his presentation from NeuroSpeech about advanced data form with new form layout for Silverlight and WPF.

    Here at NeuroSpeech, we figured out the problem with forms based business applications that frustrates developers and change management is not only time consuming but its quite boring job to do.

    Although WPF/Silverlight does offer very customizable UI designing platform but when we go on the field to develop ling of business applications, we realize that initial development hardly takes any time but maintenance is very difficult.

    In this post Karl Shifflett discusses one example application that he wrote for WPF Line of Business Tour at Redmond event called Stuff.

    ImageIn its current form, Stuff is a demo application that allows you to store information about the movies you own.  It uses the Netflix OData cloud database for movie look up, which makes adding a movie to your collection very easy.

    One goal for Stuff was that a developer could take the code, open it in Visual Studio 2010 and press F5 and run the application.  I didn’t want burden developers with setting up a database, creating an account to use an on-line service or have to mess with connection strings, etc.

  • An Annotated Line of Business Application

    This mini-tutorial of Jesse Liberty is the first in a series that will walk through the design and delivery of the HyperVideo Player project.

    This series will pretend that the design existed before we began coding, and will not take you through its evolution over the months between December 2009 and March 2010. In short, this series is a “drop-line” exercise highlighting how the program works with a focus on teasing out general principles of creating mid-sized line of business Silverlight applications.

    The last few weeks have been very exciting. At PDC 2009 Microsoft announced WCF RIA Services which is now the official name of .NET RIA Services. Their intention is to emphasize how close RIA Services and WCF is. However there were minor changes to the API it didn’t affect my previous article so you can still consider it valid.

    In my last article I wrote about the basic concepts of WCF RIA Services and n-tier development. In this one we’ll talk about the features of WCF RIA Services in terms of creating complex queries.

  • Silverlight LOB: Validation (#2 – Annotations and Shared Classes)

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Nov 09, 2009 (7 months ago)
    Andrej Tozon continues his Silverlight LOB posts and this time he talks about working with data validation in Silverlight 3.

    In my previous post, I wrote about “the first line of defense” against inputting invalid data in Silverlight applications (or any kind of application, for that matter) – preventing the user from entering invalid data through some an input form. Input form fields are commonly directly bound to the underlying object’s properties – either directly or through a of value converter – in both cases the entered value gets assigned to the bound object’s property; and this is exactly the place where we would want to put our second line of defense.

    In this series of articles we will talk about buildng N-Tier Silverlight business application, why we want to use multiple tiers, what problems we have to face and how .NET RIA Services can help us solve our issues.

    Going N-Tier

    If you develop complex business applications with a large codebase that can easily adapt to changing environments you introduce multiple tiers or layers. For example, you create a Data Access Layer that communicates with your data source whatever that is and passes the requested data to the layer above in object oriented form.

    Mike Taulty has posted a great video on Channel9 about using Prism in Silverlight.

    This is part 1 of a series of screencasts illustrating some of the ideas found in "Prism" or the "Composite Application Guidance" from the Patterns and Practices team that can be used to build Silverlight applications in a way that lends itself to testability and modularity.

  • A Video of a LOB Silverlight App

    0 comments  /  posted by  Beat Kiener  on  Oct 12, 2009 (8 months ago)

    Beat Kiener has posted a video from a LOB Silverlight App on which he is working at the moment.Image

    Currently we are working an application for based on our new evidence nova Silverlight application framework.
    The application is intended to optmize the waste-management in the public area. The RIA-Application mainly visualize the filling level of different waste containers in the public area, shows system levels information about waste containers (electric power state, service requests, malfunctions, etc) and provides forecasts at what time a container might be full. The application is a full-frame Silverlight 3 application and is mainly running on a Getac table PC.
