    David Kelley has posted about Isolated Storage and how to save name value pairs.

    In its most simple form Isolated Storage allows you to save name value pairs and retrieve them at some other time the next time your app runs. Granted we could get into XML and text files etc but I'm going to stick with just name value pairs.

  • Silverlight Tip of the Day #28 – Text Trimming

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jun 07, 2010 (2 weeks ago)
    Tags: Text Trimming , Tips , Silverlight 4 , Mike Snow
    This next tip of Mike Snow is about the text trimming feature in Silverlight 4.

    With Silverlight 4 came support for Text Trimming. Text Trimming is a feature that applies to TextBlocks and is used to append “…” at the end of the string if the text in the TextBlock does not fit. In WPF this can be done at the character level or the word level. Silverlight 4 only supports trimming at the word level.

    Tim Heuer announces the release of the refreshed Silverlight 4 themes (inlcuding RIA Services templates).  

    The feedback from the Silverlight 4 application themes released and the latest in process have been overwhelmingly toward the positive.  We appreciate the feedback and hopefully you appreciate the transparency in the process.  As a developer I want my fellow brethren to appreciate good design and use it whenever possible … even as a default if you don’t have designers on board.

  • Adventures in MVVM – ViewModel Location and Creation

    In this post, Brian Genisio demonstrates how he attaches ViewModels to his Views. And the code to his ViewModelSupport project is available on CodePlex in case you'd like to see how it works along with some examples. 

    My approach to View-First ViewModel creation has evolved over time.  I have constructed ViewModels in code-behind.  I have instantiated ViewModels in the resources sectoin of the view. I have used Prism to resolve ViewModels via Dependency Injection. I have created attached properties that use Dependency Injection containers underneath.  Of all these approaches, I continue to find issues either in composability, blendability or maintainability.

    John Papa has created a simple plugin named “Sticky” for his Seesmic Desktop.
    Feel free to use this plugin as you like. It is a simple plug in that shows information about the Twitter user right inline with the Tweet. This post will explain what the Sticky plugin does and of course I’ll share the plugin with you. I’ll follow up with another post to explain how to create a plugin using the Seesmic Desktop platform, Visual Studio 2010, and Expression Blend.
  • Push and Pull - Silverlight Webcam Capturing Details

    In this blog post, René Schulte demonstrates how to use the webcam, the CaptureImageAsync method and also how to implement and use the VideoSink.

    It's not a secret that one of my favorite Silverlight 4 features is the webcam support and I already played endless hours with it. There are many blog posts out there demonstrating how to use the webcam and how to take a screenshot with the CaptureImageAsync method. Only a few cover the VideoSink.

    Mark has worked on the text aspects of Silverlight since the first version. Here are just a few of the areas that Mark covers:

    1. Overview of RichTextBox vs. TextBlock and TextBox for rich content
    2. Wire-up logic for applying formatting
    3. Inline UI elements
    4. Using text position to point for simple and complex operations [...]

    Tim Heuer is happy to announce that a service update for Silverlight 4 has been released.

    This is a minor release that addresses some items found immediately after release that have now completed our test passes with those who reported them. Most of the items found won’t affect all users, but media developers will want to get this update for their applications and encourage their users to upgrade.

  • SpiralText in Silverlight 4

    By using the new PathListBox control in Blend 4 and the Path class in Silverlight 4, Fons Sonnemans has created this SpiralText sample.

    Blend 4.0 includes a new PathListBox control. In Silverlight 4 you can create your own shapes by deriving from the Path class. I have used these two techniques to create this SpiralText sample.

    The Spiral class uses ArcSegment objects to create a spiral illusion. It isn't a perfect spiral but it is good enough for me.
