  • Hello MEF in Silverlight 4 and VB! (with an MVVM Light cameo)

    Glenn Block has e very detailed article on developing Silverlight applications with MEF in Visual Basic.

    For a while we’ve been getting a number of requests to have some MEF samples in VB. Let me first apologize as it’s been something I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time. To partially redeem myself, I’ve gone ahead and ported my Hello MEF sample which I demonstrated at PDC and had a small blog series on. BTW, I won’t blame you if you are not ready to forgive me for not showing VB love earlier. ;-)

    The “app” (If you squint you might think it’s a real app :-) ) is an illustration of building a pluggable dashboard with MEF. The sample illustrates a ton of concepts around MEF, but the app itself is quite simple to grock.

  • Building Business Applications with Silverlight 4, RIA Services and Visual Studio 2010 – Now in Visual Basic

    Brad Abrams has posted the full play-by-play of the demo he presented during his PDC09 talk but now it is in Visual Basic.

    We walked through end-to-end how to build a Business Application in Silverlight with .NET RIA Services.  We saw the query support, validating update, authorization and personalization as well as all the great new support in VS2010.

    A few folks commented that they’d like to see something in Brad's series on updating his Mix09 talk “building business applications with Silverlight 3” in Visual Basic so he decided to fulfil their wishes.

     VB is *super* important in the business application space, so I have no problem accommodating that request.   By while I was at it I thought i’d also show a WPF client for RIA Services via the very cool ADO.NET Data Services support we have.  This is much like the WinForms support I showed earlier. 

    Here are the previous parts of Brad's series:

    • Part 13: The New Class Library Project
    • Part 12: DataSet
    • Part 11: The Client-Only World
    • Part 10: LinqToSql
    • Part 9: POCO and Authentication Provider
    • Part 8: WCF Based Data Source
    • Part 7: ADO.NET Data Services Based Data Store
    • Part 6: Data Transfer Objects (DTOs)
    • Part 5: Astoria, Add Service Reference and WinForms
    • Part 4: SEO, Export to Excel and Out of Browser
    • Part 3: Authentication
    • Part 2: Rich Data Query
    • Part 1: Navigation Basics

    Pro Silverlight 3 in VB

    Product Description

    Silverlight is a lightweight browser plug-in that frees your code from the traditional confines of the browser. It's a rules-changing, groundbreaking technology that allows you to run rich client applications right inside the browser. Even more impressively, it's able to host true .NET applications in non-Microsoft browsers (like Firefox) and on non-Microsoft platforms (like Mac OS X). Silverlight is still new and evolving fast, and you need a reliable guidebook to make sense of it.
    Pro Silverlight 3 in VB, Second Edition is the perfect reference to ensure you are informed and up to date: you'll learn about the features that put Silverlight in direct competition with Adobe Flash, such as rich support for 2D drawing, animations, and media playback, and best of all, you'll experience the plumbing of .NET and the design model of WPF through Silverlight–all of the same .NET technology that developers use to design next-generation Windows applications. Author Matthew MacDonald provides an expertly crafted tutorial written from professional developer to professional developer. You'll learn to create rich media applications using Silverlight in the environment you’re most productive in–no matter what the target platform.
