    The documentation for The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) describes its purpose as a tool that "...simplifies the creation of extensible applications". That is a very general statement. It's like describing nuclear physics as "the field of physics that studies the building blocks and interactions of atomic nuclei". In some ways MEF is as powerful to programming as nuclear physics is to science.

    However, for the "common man", nuclear physics is only important because it makes your lights turn on when you flick the light switch. With MEF, we will use it to simply load a .xap file that contains a Silverlight application. Trust me, it can do a lot more, but MEF is in a state like the Visual State Manager was years ago, powerful but hard to use, so you may decide to wait for more advanced tooling to appear before implementing some of it's other functions.

    You may have heard about MEF and how great it is. However, you may find it a bit confusing and hard to follow. Fear not. This article is designed for you! The goal here is to give you a quick easy win. You will be able to understand this one. You will come away with something you can use, and you will be able to tell your fellow colleagues, "MEF? yeah I'm using that, good stuff".

    Phil Middlemiss describes a technique to use multiple data templates inside an ItemsControl, DataGrid or other controls that show lists of items.

    For example, I may have a collection of company staff members to display in a single ListBox, but the managerial staff need to have extra information displayed (they always do!), and each level is styled slightly differently like this for example:

    Ray Booysen has just finished a big set of work where the Silverlight LocalMessaging classes where heavily used as messaging transport and he decided to share some information on the subject.

    Without going into too many details as I'd break some contractual obligations, I can say that we needed a way for two Silverlight applications to communicate in a master/slave scenario.  Typical messaging loads were in the region of around 1000 messages a minute with varying sizes with another requirement being guaranteed delivery and no out of order messages.
