While this book has covered a significant amount of Silverlight, there is much more to it. This chapter aims to provide information on some of these other topics. The biggest topic yet to be covered is the multithreading support that Silverlight provides. Used properly, threading is a great way to provide a smooth user experience by doing work such as lengthy calculations or downloading files while the user interface remains responsive. Another useful technique for certain applications is the use of a timer—a way to execute some code on a certain periodic schedule (e.g., every 10 seconds). This chapter concludes with how to dynamically load assemblies and even dynamically add XAML to your user interface.
