Silverlight 4 Using C# Training

Course#: WA1906

This four-day course provides the C# programmer with a thorough foundation in Silverlight 4. After introducing the Silverlight plug-in and SDK and the programming model for Silverlight, the course provides a thorough survey of Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), which is also the foundation of Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). The course then shows how to use Silverlight to draw shapes, lines, text and images. Layout is discussed in detail, including sizing and positioning of controls and the use of panels. Event handling is covered. There is an introduction to Silverlight animation and the use of video and audio. The last part of the course covers topics in networking, data controls and data binding, and data access. An appendix covers transforms in Silverlight, which can be used to achieve various special visual effects.

Audience

Programmers needing to create web applications using Silverlight.

Prerequisites

A basic understanding of Web application development using HTML and programming experience in .NET using C#. Some exposure to JavaScript would be helpful but is not essential. A basic knowledge of ADO.NET is also desirable for the data access chapter.
