    David Poll has published the material from his TechEd presentation about some features that are new to Silverlight 4 out-of-browser applications.

    On Wednesday, I had the distinct pleasure of giving a talk at this great conference, and it was a real treat getting to share some great content with you.  I’d like to thank all of you who attended for coming!  My talk – Taking Microsoft Silverlight 4 Applications Beyond the Browser – took a look at the features we’ve added for out-of-browser Silverlight applications with Silverlight 4. I went over a fair amount of material, which I promised to make available on my blog, so I’ve provided the info below.

    Vincent Leung has published a project demonstrating how to create a custom OOB window in Silverlight 4.

    The MainWindow control derives from UserControl and is meant to replace the default layout root. It provides the following features:

    • A title bar that users can drag to move the window. The title bar consumes out-of-browser configuration data for the icon and title text.
    • A default border that users can drag to resize the window. Hovering over the border changes the cursor as you would expect. A BorderBrush dependency property lets you customize the border background from the application layout root.
    • Isolated Storage support to store the window size, position, and state on application shutdown and retrieve the values on the next startup.

    In this post Jeremy Likeness explains what happens if the user is running on their desktop and offline and demonstrates his OfflineCatalog which comes to help in such situations.

    This MEF catalog behaves like the DeploymentCatalog with a few exceptions. First, it will save any XAP file to isolated storage whenever it retrieves one, and second, if the application is OOB and offline, it will automatically load the XAPs from isolated storage instead of trying to fetch them from the web.

    Instead of building my own catalog from scratch, I decided to cheat a little bit and use some of the existing catalogs "under the covers."

    Karl Erickson is excited to find out that Silverlight 4 now extends the out-of-browser feature to include support for window customization through the Window class.

    Basically, this feature lets you draw the entire window area yourself. You have complete control within the window rectangle (optionally with rounded corners).

    This gives you a lot of room for both creativity and abuse. It is your responsibility to take usability into consideration and provide custom UI for common window interactions as appropriate. To help out with this, you can programmatically move, resize, pin, minimize, normalize, maximize, and close the window.

    Victor Gaudioso decided to make a tutorial on how to build your very own TutorialCam.

    It takes about 27 minutes but is much easier than you would think.  There are a lot of little things that you need to do but it is fun and when you are done you will be ready to make your very own Silverlight video tutorials just like me and possibly get MSFT MVP along the way.

    Chris Koenig has published part 3 of 3 from his series on Windows Phone 7 and this last post is all about navigation.

    Out of the box, the Windows Phone 7 tools give you a pretty good starting place for your application. The List template is based on the MVVM pattern, includes some sample code to help you better visualize your solution, and two pages to get you started: main page (list of items) and details page (details for an item). In this post we’ll explore the page navigation options available to the WP7 developer, starting with the OOB experience.

    But first you may want to take a look at the previous two parts from the series:
    • Developing for Windows Phone 7
    • WP7 Part 2 – Working with Data
  • RIA Services Authentication Out-Of-Browser

    In this post Kyle McClellan explains how with a little coaxing RIA Authentication can be mode to work in Out-Of-Browser scenarios.

    RIA Services does not support Out-Of-Browser (OOB) Forms authentication out of the box. The reason this does not work is that the Browser networking stack handles cookies differently than the Client networking stack (used OOB).

    Jesse Liberty has published a mini-tutorial on using Silverlight for creating desk-top utilities.

    I had decided to create a list of what videos were already available on the Learning Pages of  When I clicked on the page for the entire list, however, I was quite daunted by the sheer number. I opened the “source” for the page, and found that there was an easy screen scraping capability, however. The name of each video was also a link to its landing page, and so I could grab the HTML and search for the appropriate links.

  • Silverlight Tip of the Day #5 – Debugging Out of Browser Applications

    Mike Snow continues with his tips of the day and this one is about debugging Out of Browser (OOB) apps.

    By default, when debugging, Silverlight will launch your application in the browser. However, if you application is configured to run in Out of Browser (OOB) mode and is installed on the box you can configure debugging to occur directly in the OOB application window rather than the browser.

    In this next tip, Mike Snow explains about configuring Silverlight applications to run in elevated trust mode.

    With Silverlight you can run your Out-of-Browser applications in elevated trust mode. This will allow you to relax the normal sandboxed barrier Silverlight restricts applica
