Understanding Databinding with XAML in WPF and Silverlight Part 1 by Vince Blasberg @ Dallas XAML UG on 03/02/2010

Another in the series of recordings I have done for INETA Live. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Abstract: A fast pace walkthrough of databinding in WPF and Silverlight. Well move into variations of using the path statement and move into using converters to make databinding flexible and powerful.

Silverlight & no 64 bit

When attempting to use a Silverlight application in the 64-bit version of IE you will get this message. “Microsoft Silverlight cannot be used in browsers running in 64 bit mode.” At first I was disappointed because I would like to see more of the industry move to 64 bit. Heck they are selling it at Best Buy now. However does Silverlight really need 64 bit? 64 bit gives you more throughput on the processor and more access to memory. But it is defiantly not typical for Silverlight applications to need that much memory and/or do highly processor...

Server Quest II: Silverlight Game Development Competition

Microsoft is sponsoring a Silverlight Game Development Competition (, and while I am far from a game developer and have never written something in Silverlight I figured I would toss an entry together for fun, and what better then a classic game of tic tac toe. Well how about tic tac toe, INETA vs. Culminis, Mac vs. PC, or .NET vs. Java. Now it is all done in good fun. So if you have a few minutes try your hand out at some good ole tic tac toe, and if you have a couple of hours put together an entry...

MS Popfly

Silverlight Deep Zoom (aka SeaDragon)

In my second in the series of TechEd Questions I have a good one. Unfortunately it had nothing to do with C#, but that doesn’t diminish its cool factor. The attendee, lets call her Suzie, volunteered to help organization working with an artist that recently passed away catalogue his work on the internet. She wanted a good way to post high resolution images on the web allowing the public to enjoy this persons artistic contribution. The first thing that jumped to mind with the Hard Rock Demo from Mix ( you have got to check this out! You can see...

Silverlight Halo 3 Video!

In post in Joe Healy's blog ( he said “Pick which you think is cooler, the Silverlight playback or Halo3 trailer itself”. I need an option C. I did not have Silverlight installed. So when I went to the page it told me to download it, and within 30 seconds Silverlight was installed and I was watching the movie. So I vote for the easy installation as the coolest. But the video was awesome also!
