Title: Silverlight project: Web application - Course Silverlight 3 - Lesson 2
Duration: 18:17 minutes
Summary: In this video, we continue our introduction to Silverlight 3 by creating a Silverlight project and a web application that hosts it. When we first started, we added the option of creating the web application. We made changes to MainPage.xaml to add a label and a button. We added code to the button so the label will change when the user clicks on it. But more importantly in this video, we talked about the xap files that is created and placed in the ClientBin folder. This file contains all the information that the web page needs to know about the Silverlight application. We created another copy of the aspx test page and made some modifications to it. Then we copied the name of the xap file to the URL and we saw how we can download the file and change its extension to zip and be able to view all the contents of that file.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
Technology Used: Silverlight 3 and Visual Studio 2010.
