Silverlight 2.0 Tutorials
Getting Started with Silverlight Development
Quickstart: “Getting Started with Silverlight Development,” from Microsoft. This session discusses how to create a Silverlight project (using the templates provided in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 to create basic project settings and structure for Silverlight-based applications that use managed code), how to debug Silverlight applications (detecting and handling errors), and how to explore Silverlight assemblies with the Virtual Studio Object Browser (customizing the Virtual Studio Object Browser to view assemblies installed with Silverlight).
Building Dynamic User Interfaces with Silverlight
Quickstart: “Building Dynamic User Interfaces with Silverlight,” from Microsoft. Topics include how to write event handlers in the x:Class (explains how to write event handlers in C# or Visual Basic, compile them into an assembly and reference them from XAML), how to create custom Silverlight controls (how control projects use a XAML file to define the UI for a control and how to add files to a project to test the control), how to call Silverlight client APIs (describes managed classes used when programming Silverlight-based applications with managed code), and how to use a splash screen to load a Silverlight-based application (implementing a splash screen to be displayed while loading assembiles for Silverlight-based application in the background).
Networking and Communication in Silverlight
Quickstart: “Networking and Communication in Silverlight,” from Microsoft. Topics include how to send and receive plain XML requests and responses over HTTP (how to use the HTTP transport), and how to use a proxy to call and ASP.NET web service from Silverlight (using a proxy to communicate with an ASP.NET web service).
Interaction Between HTML and Managed Code
Quickstart: “Interaction Between HTML and Managed Code,” from Microsoft. Demonstrates how to program interactively between managed code components and web pages in Silverlight-based applications. Topics include how to Access the HTML DOM from managed code (how to programmatically access the HTML DOM and control visual elements in an HTML page using managed code in a Silverlight-based application), and how to call managed code from JavaScript (how to access events, properties and methods managed in classes directly from JavaScript in a Silverlight-based application).
Working with XML in Silverlight
Quickstart: “Working with XML in Silverlight,” from Microsoft. Discusses how to manipulate XML data in Silverlight. The session demonstrates how to use the .NET Framework for Silverlight to retrieve remote XML content, read XML content using the .NET Framework for Silverlight and write it to a page as XAML content).
Working with Isolated Storage in Silverlight
Quickstart: “Working with Isolated Storage in Silverlight,” from Microsoft. The characteristics of isolated storage in Silverlight include allocation of storage, access to a virtual file system, isolated storage APIs are similar to File and Directory classes and restricts the total amount of data an application can store by using a quota. This session discusses how to use isolated storage with .NET Framework Silverlight (obtain an isolated store; manage files in, save data to, and retrieve data from isolated storage).
Additional Silverlight Programming Tasks
Quickstart: “Additional Programming Tasks,” from Microsoft. Sessions include how to perform a file upload in Silverlight, how to program Silverlight with dynamic languages, and how to download images using the Silverlight Networking Stack.
How to Design the Blog Theme with Silverlight
Article: "Silverlight 2.0—How to Design the Blog Theme with Silverlight," by Michael Sync (senior software engineer in Microsoft .NET technologies and web services). Discusses what Silverlight is, background, prerequisites, getting started with Visual Studio 2008, polishing the header, using the rectangle with gradient color, filling the gradient color in Canvas and using Brush transform, using pan or XAML path to draw the curve, using the third-party controls in a Silverlight project, Freshy toolbar for Silverlight, the sidebar, the footer, what we learned, and some limitations of Silverlight.
