Silverlight 1.1 in Action - The Book Cover


Today I officially selected the cover for my upcoming book "Silverlight 1.1 in Action". Here it is:

This cover is only a draft and I anticipate the "Silverlight 1.1" text will be fully exposed in the final version. The cover is consistent with Manning Publications Co. cover scheme. I specifically chose this cover because of the fact the guy is unsheathing a sword which is
  • Awesome
  • Consistent with the theme in the first chapter, which will be available on this blog fairly soon.

I hope you like it. If you would like to know more about Manning's cover approach, the information is available here

Silverlight 1.0 - Beta 1 to RC1 Breaking Changes


I apologize for not having all of my samples migrated yet. I was having some difficulties and really scratching my head. As it turns out, I have pinpointed a breaking change that I do not believe is in the SDK. The breaking change is...

The width and height properties in the createObject function call must be string values, not integer values.

I had been using integer values in my samples and it caused me a bit of confusion while I was attempting to migrate my samples. I hope this post will help you avoid the same problem.
