  • Sharing the code for a simple Silverlight 4 REST-based cloud-oriented file management app for Azure and S3

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  May 14, 2010 (1 month ago)
    In this blog post, David Anson is sharing information and code for his BlobStore project.

    BlobStore was a fun project to work on and it gave me some nice exposure to Silverlight's networking stack (which I don't normally get a chance to use). There are some rough edges I didn't get around to smoothing over, but on the whole I think BlobStore turned out pretty well: it's small and quick to download, easy to use, it simplifies something I do every day, and it was a great learning experience!

    Aside: You can even use BlobStore to publish Silverlight applications (just upload the XAP and HTML file), so it's got that recursive thing going for it, too..

  • Consuming REST/POX and REST/JSON services in Silverlight 4

    Carlos Figueira posted about the out-of-the-box support for consuming REST/POX services, and then added another post about using the extensibility points to consume REST/JSON services on SL4.

    A new feature in Silverlight 4 is the ability to consume REST/POX (XML) services in a strongly-typed way, using the same programming model as the desktop framework. That includes WebGet/WebInvoke attributes, UriTemplates and body styles. By default, only XML is enabled, but there are extensibility points which can be used to enable the consumption of JSON and Raw services as well (i.e., the full web programming model of the desktop framework).

    Tim Heuer is really impressed by the Speak API so he decided to play around with it and created a simple application for that purpose.

    One of the announcements that happened during the MIX10 conference was the availability of the V2 of the Microsoft Translator API.  This is the engine that powers the translation behind and some other Bing-related properties as well.  A lot of research has gone into the engine from Microsoft Research and others.  Language translation isn’t an easy task especially taking into consideration cultural significance of words, etc.

    Jeremy Likness has posted part one of a series on creating a RSS reader for Silverlight.

    One of the most common examples to help learn a language or framework is an RSS Reader. This is an ideal mini-project because it includes networking, parsing XML, and binding to data elements such as lists. I wanted to provide an example that shows some more interesting solutions that are possible using C# in Silverlight. This is the first part in a series. By the end of this post, we'll have a working reader. What I'll then do is add some more detailed error handling, provide unit tests, tackle skinning and visual states, and hopefully end up with a fairly advanced client.

    Lukas Zdechovan has created an application that uses Google Search API and behaves like Internet Search Application with option to preview desired page in web browser directly in this application.

    I built a simple silverlight client, that makes requests to this service by WebClient(class), convert the JSON result to an XML and then parse it to a collection of GoogleSearchResult(class) objects shown in ItemsControl.

    I tested the new WebBrowser control in which, you can preview desired search result. Because it works only in Out of Browser mode I practiced utilization of InstallState and IsRunningOutOfBrowser properties to provide install button and determine whether application runs OoB or not.
