    Jeremy Likness discusses the problem about the concept of a dialog box in Silverlight and gives a possible solution.

    I noticed on the forums there are a lot of users not comfortable with asynchronous programming who struggle a bit in Silverlight with getting their arms around the concept of a dialog box. In other environments, you can simply shoot out a dialog, wait for the response, and continue. In Silverlight, of course, the action is asynchronous. I would argue it should be this way most of the time.

    David Anson has posted about BackgroundTaskManager on WPF and Silverlight.

    In my last post I talked about the source control repository browser project I've been playing around with and mentioned that one of my primary goals was for the application to be "Completely asynchronous so that one or more long-running network tasks wouldn't hang the user interface". Some of you asked me to go into more detail about how this application works, and I thought I'd begin by discussing the asynchronous aspect.

    Chris Cavanagh has poasted a really useful Silverlight class to simplify asynchronous server requests. He has also revisited the Relay code from last week and shows an alternative built around DependencyProperties.

    Alexey Zakharov offers you to read the article of Jeffery Richter about implementing the CLR asynchronous programming model, which could help you to develop APM in your silverlight application.

    Are you a fan of Twitter? Personally I'm, but I'm also a fan of Silverlight. Twitter has a couple of Flash and HTML badges (a.k.a widgets) you can get and put on your blog to let your visitors know what you are up to in the moment. However, Twitter does not have a Silverlight widget. What negligence! :) If you are like me and want not a Flash, but a Silverlight widget on your blog go ahead and read on how you can build one by yourself or just copy the text below to use it.

    I've been playing with some timers and Web Services and I got stuck in a case where the background thread was trying to update the UI. Well, that's never going to happen. To update the UI you should use the UI thread. Let's see how we can call the UI thread from the background thread.

    Consider this situation:

    You have data that needs to be updated every minute. The data is loaded by calling a web service.

    For the update you can use the Timer class. Both the timer and the web service calls are executed asynchronously.
