Developing Web Applications
In the previous chapter, you learned how to build a simple Windows-based graphical user interface (GUI) using C# and WPF. Although WPF gives programmers the ability to easily build extremely rich user interfaces, it is not always practical to assume users will access your programs through a traditional Windows-based PC. With the proliferation of intranets, web applications, and mobile devices, applications now need to allow users the ability to access the interface through a variety of browsers and devices. This chapter shows you how to build a web-based user interface using Silverlight. If you experience a sense of déjà vu while reading this chapter, it is by design. Silverlight interface design and programming uses an object model that is remarkably similar to the one used to design and program a WPF interface. As a matter of fact, prior to the release of Silverlight 1.0, it was referred to as Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere (WPF/E).
