    Silverlight 2 Unleashed

    Product Description

    Silverlight is Microsoft's new web-based User Interface (UI) technology, based on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), which is introducing many revolutionary concepts in the world of UI development. Silverlight utilizes XAML, which tools like Expression Design and Expression Blend use to create astonishing UI effects (such as gradients, compositions, and animations.) In addition to the richness of the UI elements (comparable to Adobe Flash), Silverlight 2 allows the use of C# or VB in addition to JavaScript to automate web pages.

    Accelerated Silverlight 2

    Product Description

    Accelerated Silverlight 2 will get you up to speed with the latest version of Silverlight quickly and efficiently. Author Jeff Scanlon assumes you’re already comfortable with the basics of .NET coding and with WPF, and they help you build on your existing knowledge to make your journey to Silverlight 2 proficiency as quick and painless as possible. Where coding techniques are similar to other, more established, areas of .NET, they’ll say so. Likewise, where there’s a syntax or conceptual “gotcha” that you’re existing coding habits will walk you into, they’ll point that out, too.

    You’ll find fast–track coverage of all the most important elements of the Silverlight 2 technology ranging from XAML to standard controls, from dealing with media to networking, from testing to deployment. Two fully worked sample applications conclude your path to Silverlight 2 mastery because nothing reinforces your understanding of how concepts fit together as much as looking at finished code.

    The book is based on the assumption that readers will already be very comfortable with the workings of the .NET Framework. Knowledge of Expression Blend is useful, but the authors don’t assume that you’re a master of it. You’ll learn the Blend techniques that you need to know as you go along. By the end of the book, the authors will have provided you with a sound, concise, path to mastery of Silverlight 2.

    Silverlight 2 in Action

    Microsoft describes Silverlight as a "cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web." That's a really boring description for a really exciting new technology. Anyone who has looked at the demos and gotten a taste of what Silverlight can do knows that Silverlight represents an entirely new level of rich web interface technology for Microsoft developers. With Silverlight 2, developers can use JavaScript, VB, C#, Python, and Ruby to build user-friendly, interactive, and visually-dazzling web applications that work in most major browsers.

    Silverlight 2 Visual Essentials

    Product Description

    Silverlight is a lightweight browser plug–in that frees your code from the traditional confines of the browser. It is a rules–changing, groundbreaking technology that allows you to run rich client applications right inside the browser. Even more impressively, it is able to host true .NET applications in non–Microsoft browsers (like Firefox) and on non–Microsoft platforms (like Mac OS X).

    Silverlight is still new and evolving fast, and you need a reliable guidebook to make sense of it.
