Silverlight Development in SharePoint 2010 In this session Neil will demonstrate how Silverlight has become an integral part of the SharePoint 2010 experience. Then he will walk through current and future Silverlight Development techniques using Visual Studio, Expression Blend, Web Services and the new Client Object Model.

Silverlight 2 Version 2.0 released October 2008 Write applications using managed code and .NET languages (C#, VB .NET) Rich UI such as animation, vector graphics and audio-video playback Deep Zoom Silverlight 3 New controls: datagrid, treeview AAC audio decoding, H.264 video, 1080p
streaming Perspective 3D Bitmap API Out-of-Browser Silverlight 4
Web cam and Mic support Printing Right mouse click support RichTextBox control Hosted Browser Support (html in silverlight) Multi-touch Support for Chrome Browser Deploy applications to set-top boxes
Vs. Flash Pros: Flash is not a development environment Easy transition for existing .NET developers Easy transition for existing Flash developers, uses many of the same concepts: key frames, animations, gradients, transformations Able to use Visual Studio Future: Full hardware 3D support Cons: Market penetration still lagging, but gettings stronger.
Currently at 60% of internet devices!! Development Methodology Separation of Design and Code Designers can work independently using the Expression Suite XAML data can be indexed by search engines Development Methodology XAML Serialization of .net objects Represents visual UI, separate from implementation
Designable in Expression Blend xaml code =
border.CornerRadius = new CornerRadius(2); LinearGradientBrush lgb = new LinearGradientBrush(); lgb.StartPoint = new Point(0.5, 0); lgb.EndPoint = new Point(0.5, 1); GradientStop gs = new GradientStop();
Blend is the main tool for XAML layout Expression Design can be used for creating graphical assets. Like Photoshop Key Points Silverlight uses a subset of the .NET framework. Similar to WPF, XAML syntax, not as many controls Cant mix DLLs between .NET and silverlight Runs in a isolated security sandbox Can effect the DOM All shapes defined as vectors, no loss of quality
for scaling, transformations Limitations Network calls must be made to the TLD from which it originated (same exact port) Can make cross domain calls with a crossdomain.xml file Can do sockets programming with a predefined set of ports 4502-4532 All Server side calls must be made to a WCF or Web Service All Server side calls must be invoked asynchronously Subset of .net types
Missing: XmlDocument, ADO.NET Data, ArrayList No DataTables, but you can use LINQ! Why Silverlight and SharePoint? Silverlight Presentation Client Integration SharePoint Security
Logic Layer App Model Data Layer Development Prerequisites Visual Studio 2008 SP1
Silverlight 3 tools for Visual Studio Blend 3 System.Web.Silverlight DLL in GAC ASP .NET AJAX Set up new project Use new visual studio template for creating Silverlight projects Design surface is read only (in Visual Studio 2008) Use Blend for Layout
SharePoint 2007 Integration (old) You must have the xap MIME type registered, works in IIS 7 out of the box Can also use zip/xap trick All communication with server must be done using web services layer I recommend web services instead of WCF Watch out for HTTP/HTTPS SharePoint 2007 Integration (old) Embed Install Silverlight image in solution Use random string to prevent caching
Use the System.Web.Silverlight control to ease management of Silverlight TAG (requires ScriptManager on page) Pass initial parameters using InitParams Set up width/height and maxframerate Current Development Visual Studio 2010 integrated designer surface and toolbox support Blend 4 beta Visual Studio 2010 RC for Windows Phone development You can manually upload XAP file to a simple
document library Build directly into the Clientbin folder of SharePoint Write an application to upload XAP to SharePoint Hosting Silverlight in SharePoint 2010 Script/markup on page Silverlight ASP.NET control Parts Out-of-box Silverlight Web Part Custom Web Part Full-page (web part host page)
Talking to SharePoint Web Services More coverage Client Object Model Site, nav, security services Very flexible REST Easiest to use For fixed list schema
Rendering Data to Page Web Services Advanced Operations SharePoint Server Operations Client OM Advanced List Operations Site Operations Security REST
Working with list data, fixed schema REST Read/update/delete of list data Object-oriented, ATOM-based means Standards-based, consistent with other data sources Details: In VS, Add Service Reference http://yourserver/yoursite/_vti_bin/listdata.svc
Asynchronous Load model SOAP Web Services Fixed functions exposed in the product, or build your own More MOSS, WSS functionality covered Not all services representable in SL WCF Client Details: See SDK for list of web services Of course, also in 2007!
