    This tip of Mike Snow shows you how to obtain your client’s IP address when using Silverlight.

    Unfortunately there is no way to accomplish this directly from Silverlight. It is also not supported via JScript so communicating between Silverlight and JScript will also not help here.

    The first way I have found to accomplish this is to have your Silverlight application communicate directly with a WCF service where the web services returns to the Silverlight client the IP address of the client.

    Michael Washington found out how to show design-time data in Blend when the data is using web services without writing a line of code.

    In my article Silverlight MVVM File Manager, I showed how a designer could use the MVVM pattern to create a UI from scratch, without writing a line of code.

    Yavor Georgiev has posted his presentation at last week’s PDC conference about what’s new in networking and web services in Silverlight 4 Beta.

    For my presentation I put together an application that highlights some of the coolest web services features available in Silverlight 4 Beta. The app is intended to be used by travel agents and helps with their day-to-day work: it displays (fake) real-time price information for flight tickets, it can pull up real-time information about the status of a flight, it supports a chat feature so travel agents can talk to each other, and it supports sharing a set of tasks from Sharepoint.

    Dan Wahlin is at DevConnections conference and wants to post the slides and the code for his talks.

    This time around I’m talking about Silverlight (including a full-day workshop), the new Microsoft Ajax Library script loader and template features and RIA Services.

  • Choosing a Data Access Layer for Silverlight 3

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Sep 30, 2009 (8 months ago)
    In this post Shawn Wildermuth is trying to help you choose which data access to use for Silverlight 3. The three major candidates are Web Services (WCF/ASMX), ADO.NET Data Services and RIA Services. 

    In any situation, any of these will work. But they are suited to different styles and requirements. Here's the abridged differences between the stacks:

    • Web Services: Interface-based Data Access
    • ADO.NET Data Services: LINQ-based Data Access with change management
    • RIA Services: Interface-based Data Access with change management
  • Introducing Project Niagara

    Shawn Wildermuth introduces Project Niagara and explains that the goal of the project is to democratize the validation support.

    The project wants to help developers add validation support to ADO.NET Data Services as well as Web Services in Silverlight. In addition, it has the goal of allowing multiple ways to supply the validation metadata to the different data access strategies. As it is my opinion that there are scenarios where attributes are not the best idea.

  • SilverTweet – Building a Silverlight Twitter Client Part 2

    In the first part of this series Chris Klug focused on the connection to Twitter. In this part, which is a lot shorter, he focuses on creating a webservice that can expose the Twitter functionality to the Silverlight client.

    So the first step in doing this is to add a new Web Application project to the solution I am working on. So the solution now contains one Class Library project and one Web Application. To the Web Application project, I add a WCF service called TwitterService. Just remember that the WCF service must be Silverlight enabled. So choose the “Silverlight-enabled WCF Service project”. Otherwise it will not be possible to call it from a Silverlight client.

  • Using web service faults with the new SL3 client HTTP stack

    Yavor Georgiev is talking about web service faults with the new SL3 client HTTP stack.

    Carlos, one of our team members, has posted an quick blog post on how to use SOAP faults with the new client HTTP stack, introduced in SL3. This makes configuring faults significantly easier: there is no need to write custom code in your WCF service, and all you need to do is add one line of code to the Silverlight client.
