Having labored with either products,individually, it was once great to discover released paintings at the collaboration of Sharepoint and Silverlight. The textual content is a straightforward learn and the examples are good defined. in case you are new to both of the applied sciences, this is often the booklet for you.
My merely criticisms: the canopy rate used to be too excessive. I keep in mind that the authors haven't any keep an eye on over that, yet wrox has to be sensible whilst pricing their books. whereas the content material of the booklet used to be reliable, i would not say that there has been sufficient fabric to warrant a $50 hide. Amazon has it for $31, yet i purchased mine on the neighborhood Barnes and Nobles. evidently, the benefit offset the price distinction, yet I felt the publication must have are available at a $40 cover.
Also, there's a lot of massive screenshots and pointless code listings within the e-book. for those who have been to lower the pictures down and pull out the VB code (leaving C#), this publication could most likely run approximately two hundred pages. right here back, together with the VB code along the C# code could be a Wrox factor, so i did not permit that impact my ranking of the paintings. while I released via Apress, i used to be lucky to have the opportunity of no longer together with either languages.
Overall...a nice publication and certainly a important addition for your tech library.

This chapter walks you through how you can use the SharePoint Web Part as a wrapper for your Silverlight applications. This is an interesting method (and probably one of the more popular), because it enables you to not only create isolated hosted applications, but also interconnect the Web Parts through the native SharePoint provider/consumer model — via service proxies — or via custom services that you build. The Silverlight application that you’ll build is a custom media player that allows you to select what video you’d like to play.
Expression Blend will ask you to accept a security prompt — ‘‘The project (or solution) you are trying to open could present a security risk. ’’ — so click Yes to open the project in Expression Blend. At this point, you can add items to the designer in Expression Blend, save the file, and then switch back to Visual Studio 2008, which will prompt you to reload the changes from Expression Blend into your Visual Studio 2008 project. Figure 2-5 illustrates the view of the custom media player in Expression Blend.
Play Button — When you click on the Play button, you’re again using the toggle button so you can use the checked property to either play or stop the video. Note that we’re setting the Source property of the MediaElement by concatenating three strings (baseURI, currentVideo, and vidSuffix). The media player then uses this URL to look up and play the selected video. Note that if your Silverlight application cannot find the video, you will get a Network Error exception — a generic error that means a resource could not be loaded by your Silverlight application.
