  • Communication between HTML in WebBrowser and Silverlight app

    Silverlight on Windows Phone allows you to host HTML content in a WebBrowser control. You get bi-directional communication between the control and the HTML content:
    • For HTML to host comunication, the WebBrowser control injects script into the page, and your javascript can call window.external.notify (<param>) to communicate with Silverlight. There is nothing you need to do (like include a js file). You just call the function in HTML and calling it will trigger the WebBrowser.ScriptNotify event on the Silverlight side.
    • For host to HTML, webbrowser control calls the WebBrowser.InvokeScript method, passing a string with the function name, and an array of string params ).

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterJaime Rodriguez has published a preview of the deck and source code from his WP7 session at yesterday's Silverlight FireStarter event. We expect him to post part 2 and the video recording soon.

    Yesterday I did a dry-run of my performance talk for today’s Silverlight fire starter.

    Conclusion was that the talk is like drinking from a fire-hose. It is tight for 45 minutes, but the content is good and we could not agree on what to cut. It was all too good and useful to cut stuff.

  • Working with GIF images in Windows Phone

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterJaime Rodriguez talks about some image tools/libraries that allow you to use GIF files in your WP7 app.

    As you know, Silverlight does not have native support for decoding gif images. That is downer, but not a showstopper since several 3rd party, opensource libraries for decoding Gifs. GifCompare

    The Twitter for Windows Phone team used the ImageTools project from Codeplex to decode gifs.   It worked well, but when we implemented there were two things that bothered me a little:

    1. The decoder was not perfect.  In our experience, it does ~90% of the images we tested  [and that was thousands of images, so representative test]
    2. There was one infinite loop that bothered me.  Has to do with nextflag during decoding. The Decoder checks for flags to be != 0, and for some odd reason we have seen gifs with nextFlag = –1; this can send your app into an infinite loop.

    Jaime Rodriguez has posted a list of some useful migration tips for moving between the Windows Phone April CTP and the beta release.

    There were a good number of breaking changes and new features introduced in the “beta” release of the Windows Phone Developer Tools. 

    Going forward from beta to RTM; the number of breaking changes will be minimal, so let’s just “buckle up” and migrate our code this once. 

    The migration is a lot easier than it sounds. I will first walk through the obvious breaking changes that the compiler will catch, and then share tips and workarounds in some of that ‘missing’ stuff that the compiler will miss.

    In this blog post, Jaime Rodriguez demonstrates theming and how to use it on Windows Phone 7.

    A theme is a visual definition of the look & feel for common controls in an Operating System.  
    Themes are usually end-user selectable, changing the theme at the OS level, impacts the look & feel of running applications that are ‘theme aware’.  As an example, on Windows Vista and Windows 7, a popular/desired theme is the Aero theme.

    Jaime Rodriguez has posted about two very promising WPF application frameworks on CodePlex - Onyx and Caliburn.

    Catching up on my blog reading, I see two great development frameworks recently posted in Codeplex. Both aim to build clean, testable, loosely coupled WPF applications with separated concerns.

    Jaime Rodriguez has posted some WPF discussions that caught his eye.

    Inside Microsoft, we have our own version of “forums” or “discussion groups” .. Lots of great questions and knowledge get fleshed out in these conversations.   Below is a brief (edited) version of the questions that caught my attention in the last two days. Going forward, I will try to watch these discussions closer and post the juicy ones a couple of times a month (it will always be on friday or saturday, so check for them on mondays).
