  • Building Silverlight 2 and 3 Applications with Visual Studio 2008

    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?

    Here is another of Mike Snow’s tips of the day. Mike will explain you how to handle image AG_E_NETWORK_ERROR errors.

    If you have ever worked with images while developing and running Silverlight app you have more than likely come across the AG_E_NETWORK_ERROR  exception. This exception is thrown if an image was not able to load for whatever reason (I.e. it couldn’t be found, corrupt, etc.). In order to prevent your users from seeing this error it’s important to monitor for the ImageFailed event for each image your try to load.
  • Importing and Exporting Custom Toolboxes in Visual Studio 2008

    Pete Brown has an article in which he describes how to import and export custom toolboxes in Visual Studio 2008.

    The issue is, I use multiple machines, and also do multiple demos. I typically build my demos on my desktop (big screens, powerful proc etc.) and then demo on my laptop. How can I share the toolbox between them and back up toolboxes for use later? Marc Schweigert came to the rescue and told me how to do it. It’s pretty simple, but make sure you back up your old settings first, as the new ones will pave your toolbox.

    Mike Snow has a tip in which he describes how to use string resources.

    In this Tip I will be showing you how to place hard coded strings into a resource area. This is a common best practice for software development that makes it much easier to manage the strings in your application.
