Title: Visual Studio C# - Silverlight - Isolated Storage - Lesson I
Duration: 17:47 min
Description: Silverlight allows developers to save pieces of information pertaining to the application in an area called isolated storage. That way, when the user visits the application later, data will be read from the isolated storage and the application will be modified accordingly. This is like the cookie in web applications. In this video, I am going to start by creating the screen design (code will be added in the following video). The screen contains two columns and 4 rows. The first column contains the buttons that will trigger the creation of isolated storage data. The second column will contain feedback based on what is (or is not) in the isolated storage file. The actions taken will be: setting the last visit, deleting the file from isolated storage, and requesting more storage.
Methodology: Good coding standard and simplified design.
Technologies: Silverlight 2.0
Examples constructed: We created a grid with 4 rows and two columns. The first row lists the buttons that will trigger the action: the first button is to set the last visit, the second one is to delete the isolated storage file, and the third one is to request more storage. So far the buttons do not take any action because the code behind is not implemented yet.
Key words: Isolated storage, Row definition, Column definition, TextBlock, Button, Margin.
