I don't like it either, but sooner or latter (and probably more towards sooner), someone where you work is gonna put a bug in your boss' ear about it. I became more interested in it when I noticed that Texas Med Clinic had a custom app written for them, and it had a ribbonbar. What I realized is that if it's a new application that you've never seen before, it actually does help in the navigation of said program. The only thing wrong with the current implementations I've seen is that there doesn't seem to be an ability to get rid of it and go back to a UI you're more comfortable with.

I'm using a silverlight2 datagrid in my applcation. While loading it shows very well and after the selection of one row in the grid to change the values and then click on the update button it it works very well and showing the grid very well.
But after the updation while showing the grid if we move the scroll bar up and down i'm missing the row. It shows an empty row there.
Need help to show the row while scrolling grid view scroll bar.
First of all just to give you a little background i am a web developer with one year exp. I have went to the Microsoft site and got everything concerning Silver light but i think there is a gap i still do not know how to work with it, I was not able to continue the tutorial i got from MS.
Could any one tell me what should i know as a prerequisite.
Should i know WPF becuase i really do not know a thing about it.
Is silver light has alot of post backs on server, which leads to performance issues?Is it heavy or light?
Is there any certification on silverlight?
Knowing WPF makes the programming part of Silverlight much easier
but it is not required. If you learn to write Silverlight apps,
learning to write WPF apps will be simpler.
Is silver light has alot of post backs on server, which leads to performance issues?
Only if you write code that does postbacks. Silverlight apps run on
the client - Silverlight is NOT ASP.NET.
Is it heavy or light?
Is there any certification on silverlight?
Currently, no, as far as I know. If you go through the
"Read Tim Heuer’s 8-part blog series on getting started"
section at the "Get Started Building Silverlight 3 Applications"
link I posted above, you'll be well on your way.
I'm new to silverlight. My web application "Might" attach to a TCP port that outputs a binary compressed TCP message for my web data. I'm trying to decide if I should
1)parse it in silverlight
2)write a middle-ware application that unpacks it and then sends it to my silverlight App.
My only concern is working through a binary message byte by byte to convert it into my managed code. I know there are several libraries that are not supported by Silverlight, and I hope that I don't get stuck.
there seem to be support for TCP connectivity in silverlight
Connecting, yes, but listening for connections?
working through a binary message byte by byte to convert it into my managed code
The BitConverter class is handy for that. For strings,
the Encoding class can help.
Of course, if you're unable to parse and/or decompress the data
from Silverlight code with its limited .NET framework, then you
will probably want to consider serializing the data in a format more
It will not be listening. Only requesting data from a server that hosts the data. Sorry I miss understood.
Yeah its a tough decision, there are several options for me.
1) I can edit the data server, but its an established C++(unmanaged) application. I will have several of the senior programmers grilling me on whether I screwed up anything.
2) I could write an app that uses a different port. Then all my silverlight traffic goes to that port. I convert the data and forward. (this is my preferred approach)
3) OR Convert in the silverlight app.
And the journey is complete. This is a clueless post. You can't export a datagrid to Excel. You would export the DATA to Excel, and you'd do that the same way if you were using WPF or not. Ergo, this is not a WPF question and it's one easily answered with a google search.

Read my blog to find out how I've worked around bugs in Microsoft tools and frameworks.
This doesn't work though because I've got to change the cell container's Horizontal alignment.
Also, when using a ListView.ItemContainerStyle, is it possible to trigger off the column by a name or index? As an example, how would one make the background of a column red from the ItemContainerStyle?
