    Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for .NET, announced  that its RadControls for Microsoft Silverlight 3 provides support for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework Beta, allowing developers to benefit from the new capabilities the framework offers. The new framework, announced yesterday at Microsoft Corp.’s MIX10 conference, allows designers and developers to integrate Web analytics into Silverlight applications in a consistent manner.

    “RadControls for Silverlight development plans have been always aligned with evolutions in the Microsoft Silverlight platform,” said Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik CEO. “The Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework solves the problem of integrating web analytics in to Silverlight applications in a consistent manner and we are very excited to be the first UI components vendor support it.”

    “Microsoft is pleased to have Telerik’s support for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework,” said Brad Becker, director of rich client platforms and tools at Microsoft. “Telerik RadControls for Silverlight will provide developers with unique tools for building rich Internet applications.”

    The Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework is a new open-source framework that supports out-of-browser and offline scenarios. Microsoft built this framework in conjunction with a number of Web analytics services and control vendors and designed it to support multiple analytics services simultaneously without degrading application performance. Because the Silverlight Analytics Framework is enabled as a set of behaviors in Microsoft Expression Blend, designers and developers can visually instrument their designs and configure A/B testing rapidly without writing any code.

    Telerik RadControls for Silverlight provide developers with advanced and robust tools for building Silverlight rich internet applications. RadControls work out-of-the-box with the Silverlight Analytics Framework. The suite offers Silverlight Analytics Framework handlers and behavior, which are also in Beta, helping developers to fine tune the values sent to the analytics providers. Currently the handlers are implemented in 12 controls. The official RadControls handlers and behavior for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework will be released together with the official release of the framework.

    Tags: Output Protection , Silverlight
    Read this post coming from the Silverlight SDK blog to find out more about the Silverlight support for output protection.

    The purpose of output protection is to increase content protection during transmission between a computer’s video or audio output port and the input port of another device such as a monitor or set of speakers (output). This is useful to prevent someone from intercepting copy protected content “en route” between such devices, known commonly as an "analog hole".

    Output Protection is specialized stuff and so this post will be a bit arcane to most, but will hopefully be useful to a few folks out there who are familiar with OP and want to integrate it into their Silverlight apps.

    Phil Middlemiss describes a behavior he has written that allows you to create an Opacity Mask that can be animated.

    Masking with a behavior
    An Opacity Mask "layer" allows for animation, so you can do things like a moving spot light revealing parts of an image, or have a foggy border animating around something.

    This is a Behavior I've written that lets you turn a FrameworkElement into an opacity mask for it's parent container.

    Michael Washington has created a simple module that tracks the visitors to a page for the current day and the past hour, and displays the results using Silverlight gauges.Image 

    This application is more of an example of what is possible with Silverlight and DotNetNuke rather than it is a practical application. Instead of just showing traffic to the page, the gauges could show more relevant data such as total orders placed, or the number of help desk tickets (there are plans to use this in a future version of

    Phil Middlemiss has started a tutorial for creating a TextBox control with a watermark.

    The UserControl has a watermark and a button for quickly clearing the text. The text and the watermark are bindable, and the textbox can be fully styled. It also supports commanding for MVVM patterns.

    Peter Bromberg talks about synchronous web requests and Silverlight.

    Before I start, I just want to mention that this is a very old "flame war". On the official Silverlight Forums, there was a thread that went on and on, becoming quite ugly with various ad-hominem attacks, and it eventually got so ugly that --thankfully -- the moderators took the whole thread down. However, not being averse to controversy, I of course had my say there and was duly accused by various characters of being arrogant, an idiot, and what not. My position then was exactly as it remains now; basically, Microsoft is not going to give you native synchronous web requests in Silverlight because there is too much room for abuse by developers who will freeze the UI Thread, the browser then locks up, and of course Microsoft gets blamed for a "crappy product".
