    In this blog post Bilal Haidar discusses the Telerik Sales Dashboard.

    One of those major educating applications that Telerik delivers is the Telerik Sales Dashboard. It has been built on top of WPF and Silverlight keeping in mind the MVVM design pattern (Model-View-ViewModel) and Prism (Modularity, UI composition, global events, commanding, etc …)

  • Printer Friendly Silverlight Datagrid Control

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 21, 2009 (more than a year ago)
    Ryan Shelby has been working on a Line of Business application over the past few months and like many other Silverlight Developers he didn’t find out about the lack of printing support in Silverlight 2 until it was too late. Check what he found in his search for solution of the problem.

    My original goal was to create a Silverlight Datagrid Control that would automatically generate a print friendly view of the data; without having to change or customize code or templates from datagrid to datagrid. 

    In addition, since all the information is already at client side inside the datagrid, I wanted to avoid making unnecessary trips back to the server in order to serve the print friendly version of the datagrid to the user.

    Tim Heuer explains how to build Silverlight 2 applications using a single VS2008 machine.

    People still want to know how they can build SL2 apps using a single VS2008 machine, no virtual images and without VS2010.  There is a way to do this, but please allow me to set some major caveats.  We must first make sure that what I’m saying here is still that VS2008 does not support multi-targeting IDE development with Silverlight 2 and Silverlight 3.  What I’m also saying is that VS2008 IDE and MSBuild are two different experiences.  MSBuild could care less about an IDE and it just does what it is instructed to do…so let’s instruct it to build Silverlight 2 code, shall we?

  • Adoption of WCF Technologies in Silverlight 2 Applications on the Web

    If you are interested in what communication and serialization technologies are being used by others in Silverlight 2 applications, check out this post of Tomasz Janczuk.

    The choice of communication and serialization components in Silverlight 2 was based on developer community data and the target scenarios for the platform. Some time after the platform has shipped in October 2008 I decided to measure the level of adoption of the various technologies we added to Silverlight 2. We intended to use this data to validate our original assumptions as well as inform future releases.

  • Changing the Layout for the Selected Item in ListBox

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 07, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    Chris Klug experienced a problem with changing the layout for the selected item in ListBox. The thing that caused troubles, was the fact that it was supposed to show a compact information layout for all items except the selected item. Find out what's the solution of the problem.

    The selected item should have a more verbose layout and some extra functionality. Initially that seemed like a tiny problem. That would just be a ItemTemplate with a VisualStateManager. Apparently not…!

    Why not? Well…the DataTemplate does not support a VisualStateManager. When you select an item in the ListBox, the VisualStateManager that is used to change the layout is in the items ControlTemplate and not in the items DataTemplate. So the Layout in the DataTemplate does not have the ability to change its layout based on the state.

    Pete Brown turns your attention to one great Silverlight 2 application for the Animal Testing Breaks Hearts campaign that PETA and AIS just completed.Pic

    For this application, PETA supplied all the comps in Adobe Illustrator format and AIS converted the assets into Silverlight. Tad Van Fleet took the heart images and others and imported them into Blend 3 using the new Illustrator import function, and created the appropriate Xaml. A team consisting of Jim Jackson, Tad Van Fleet and Tom Snider with contractual work and a little oversight from me, put together the complete application, including the database, WCF services, server-side image generation for embedding, and of course the Silverlight client - all in just two calendar weeks.

    Tags: Authentication , Silverlight 2 , Services

    Al Pascual demonstrates how to create a Silverlight Authentication Service so that Silverlight will use the authentication cookie.

    Message based authentication managed by Silverlight not the browser.

    Silverlight can use the browsers cookies and send them to the hosts. When you authenticate with ASP.NET the authentication cookie stored to your computer will be used by Silverlight if you create a Silverlight Authentication Service.
