Advanced Silverlight Features

  • Ashish Ghoda


Although this book has covered a significant amount of Silverlight, there is much more to Silverlight. This chapter aims to provide information on some of the more advanced topics of Silverlight. Silverlight 3 introduced some very strategic features to help you develop enterprise-level rich Internet applications (RIAs), and Silverlight 4 enhanced these features to further develop line-of-business applications. In this chapter, we will cover Silverlight navigation framework and out-of-browser functionality with extended support to local file systems, integration with COM applications, and Notification API in Silverlight 4. We will also discuss deep linking and search engine optimization (SEO) and extended commanding support to support the MVVM design pattern. We’ll end the chapter by demonstrating how to implement communication across different Silverlight applications.
