Silverlight - Client Side Invasion! [in a good way]


I haven't posted anything in a while and I wanted to write a quick message pointing out some items I've recently learned/figured out/been working on.

  • The SourceString property of the "WPF/E" object provides some VERY cool possibilities. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been working on creating an online wizard that will then generate a small JavaScript snippet that people can copy and paste to display some Silverlight content on their webpage/blog. This is really cool because it allows individuals that may not be very technical, yet know how to display a YouTube video on their webpage/blog the ability to use Silverlight content in the same fashion. This will make more sense once the wizard is posted. I have a working prototype, however I'm not making it publicly available just yet. I'm hoping that during the MIX 07 conversation, a new Silverlight CTP will be announced/released [crossing fingers]. There is currently one item that I'm looking forward to.
  • I've been writing an article for related to authoring ASP.NET user controls that host Silverlight content. This article should be published within the next week and I will write a message on this blog once it is published.

I'm seriously looking forward to seeing your new wizard application.
