  • Easier Async for Silverlight Apps using MVVM
    WPF and Silverlight have Dispatcher.CheckAccess / Dispatcher.BeginInvoke. Technical MVVM SilverlightIt makes sense to execute long-running tasks on a background thread, in order to keep the UI responsive by not tying up the main thread. However, as is the case with other UI frameworks such as Windows Forms or WPF, you should not touch UI elements from worker threads. This has to do with how Windows apps process messages, which are always handled on the thread that created the visual element. Windows Forms has the Control.InvokeRequired / Control.BeginInvoke API.

  • Using dynamic objects in Silverlight 4
    Note: This blog post is written using Silverlight 4.0 RC 1 One of the cool new features in Silverlight 4 is the ability to data bind to indexed properties. Tags: NET Silverlight ASP.NET VS2010 This means that even if you don’t know at design time what properties you data object has you can still data bind to them.

For example in example below the FirstName is a regular property while the LastName below is an indexed property. get; set; }. public Person(). {.

Tags: NET Silverlight Fortunately I was not the first person to run into this limitation, Jason Jarrett did as well and he described the solution in a blog post here. The solution turns out to be surprisingly simple, just not very obvious. All you need to do is include the following line at the top of the T4 template. 11: {.

  • Book review: Silverlight 4 in Action
    Some weeks ago I received a review copy of Silverlight in Action by Pete Brown. Reviewing this book took some time as it weighs in at a hefty 798 pages, who ever said that Silverlight was a small products? That is a lot of material but then the book doesn't assume any prior knowledge of Silverlight at all. The first part, consisting of 10 chapters, is titled "Introducing Silverlight" As the name suggests this covers the basics of Silverlight development. All in all I would recommend getting this book if you are serious about Silverlight 4 development!
