It never even occurred to me that delivering the infrastructure would be the issue, mind you the same problem would arise no matter what I used, except aspx maybe, but that is sooo yesterday...
I just assumed that a browser plug in could be installed, the admin lock down is only about a year old so no one was prepared for the implications to internal development(we are not supposed to exist, everything is supposed to be outsourced via the IT department).
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Is it possible for Silverlight to be delivered via the windows update.
Oh yes, indeedy. This has to be done by the system administrators (obviously), but Silverlight has been able to be delivered by something known as WSUS since version 2 (that's Windows Server Update Service). As long as you have Windows Server 2008 in the mix, you should be good to go. Link[^]
Are you asking how you can make WPF applications communicate online? If you are, then you should look into using Windows Communication Foundation to accomplish this. Without any more details of what you are trying to accomplish I really can't offer any further assistance.
How can we display our WPF user control into Visual Studio ToolBox under a particular tab? I understand that we can drag a DLL into toolbox or right-click and select 'choose items', but what if we want to deploy it to some other user? Now for example, as soon as I install Telerik controls - it creates a tab 'RadControls for WPF Q1 2010' and places all related controls inside that. Also, it places all controls into 'Assets' tab of Expression Blend. So how to do that with our user control? Any help/ website reference?
Thanks for your reply. But my question is related to already compiled DLL using control library project type.
I am sorry if I couldn't make it clear, but I am not asking about including a DLL into the project. Once we have the DLL with us, how can we put into VS tool box under a particular tab - along with other default controls. Again, that should not be by dragging DLL into VS tool box. Because I need to deploy that DLL. So, I guess - I need to create some EXE, which will perform some specific action - and everything will be done. Just like in the case of Telerik and other professional WPF controls.
Alas I get the following message: error MC3074: The tag 'ReportDefinition' does not exist in XML namespace 'clr-namespace:CRRT.Domain;assembly=CRRT.Domain'. Line 3 Position 3
What's wrong ? I checked that the classes do exist (in the proper namespace).
And by the way, should this eventually work, where would the result of the compilation go ? In a resource ? I stumbled upon this last question by accident btw, my initial plan was to incorporate the XAML as a text resource and load it using XamlReader. But Visual Studio spotted the .xaml extension and created a build step.
I have a series of "drawing" objects that hold some application specific data alongside an image. These objects (or at least their dates) are displayed in a listbox, when an item is selected it's image should be generated and displayed in another part of the grid. It does however not appear.
We are writing a Silverlight 4.0 application which is actually a conversion of ASP to this application.
In one block of forms we have a datagrid at the top of the form. The remainder of the form (each grouped in sections) can only be visible when the datagrid's selected index is > 0.
So I know I have to bind the Visibility attribute and I know I have to use a BooleanToVisibilityConverter. What I'm not sure about is that I cannot seem to find just the right statement to get addressability to the datagrid and its' properties leastwise how to do the comparison.
I'm thinking I may have to write my own Converter to do the comparison logic but I still have to know how to define the datagrid as the object being passed to the converter.
So I implemented my convert. check
Then I implemented the binding. check
Added the namespace for local. check
Then did local: my converter was visible and got it set with a key. check
Ran the solution and got this error at compile time.
Error 1 The tag 'DataGridVisibilityConverter' does not exist in XML namespace 'clr-namespace:CNRPGlobal.Converters; assembly=GlobalLibraryDefinitions'.
So how is it I can type local: and see my class library. Yet when I compile XAML cannot? I confirmed it is public.
