  • One thing not yet mentioned in the Breaking Changes docs is that you will need to change your "DisplayMemberBinding" tags to just "Binding" in the DataGrid.

    I'm sure there will be a lot more forthcoming about the new datagrid.  That sucker rocks guys!

  • Thank you again for pointing that out. I was about to ask.

    By the way, where is HitTest function for all the controls?

  • You can find HitTest via the VisualTreeHelper.FindElementsInHostCoordinates method, it is no longer a part of the UIElement.  The method has 1 overload.  Make sure System.Windows.Media is referenced via an Imports or using statement.

  • I still want MS to let their lostfocus event works better and add some useful common control to their libary.

  • Just a shout out to all you rockin' VB control developers!  Surprise

    You'll need to recompile your Silverlight controls or the apps you are using them in will be unable to load and will tell you they can not find the version of the Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll they are looking for.

  • I wouldn't spam ya Jacky-boy you old code teaching flamer you!  Don't know why the post is down but direct Microsoft links are live!

     Be sure to uninstall all of Silverlight Beta 2 and Expression Blend 2.5 before you install.

  • OK, so far so good. Fixed few compiling errors by hand. The beta2 solution compiled and runs fine. Have not checked every page. But definitely a much smoother transition than the beta2 release.

  •  does anyone have the version # i need to use for the <asp:Silverlight MinimumVersion="..." /> ? It was on the blog before it was taken down.

     

    Thanks

    Thursday, September 25, 2008 11:13 PM
  • I believe MinimumVersion="2.0.30923.0" will work for you my quick-quacking friend!

    Thursday, September 25, 2008 11:19 PM
  • Way smoother transition!  My app is huge and in less than an hour it is running more solid than I would've imagined.  No show stoppers yet!

     How bout some love for that datagrid (way more fluid...yet feels solid...how odd....)?!?  Give it up, give it up!

  •  I noticed a breaking change with my codebase that I didnt see documented (but maybe it's around a concept I'm not familiar with yet). Seems now in RC0 that I can't succesfully make any soap calls unless I've already initialized Application.RootVisual to a control beforehand. Does anyone know why that might be the case now?

    I can work around this with some non-trivial changes to our code, but either way I'd like to know more about what's going on internally and any relationship there may be between the RootVisual and messaging from soap requests.

    Thanks

    I'll take a stab, and this really is pure speculation as I haven't had a chance to load up the RC yet, but web service calls are invoked on the UI thread, and if you were looking to grab a Dispatcher to Invoke on, the RootVisual would be a pretty good place to start.

  • I have posted a comment for asking that is it feature complete.Scott guthrie replied that

    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2008/09/25/silverlight-2-release-candidate-now-available.aspx#6642312 

    "We are feature-complete for the core SL2 download.  You'll see additional controls and features ship over the next few months that run on top of SL2 though."

    Please Could any geek/SL team member can explain that what could be meant by top of SL though ?

    Friday, September 26, 2008 2:42 AM
  •  It means they will be releasing new controls as a separate project. So to use them you will have to reference one or more dll:s in your projects. The new controls will not be part of the normal SL2 runtime.

     There you go all you haters! Stick out tongue

    I ain't just screwin' around with your heads...well...maybe I am!

    Devil

    Ok, I confess I was a hater on you, but come on, with a name like SilverlightRelease, what could you expect.

    BTW, come clean, you didn't just predict this, you have to have had some inside info.

  • Ok Now understand it can be said Like Custom Control.

    Thanks hwsoderlund.

     

    Only Funny Part is about Expression Blend 2.5 project.[ as there will be no expression blend 2.5 future release] as mnetioned http://blogs.msdn.com/expression/archive/2008/09/25/expression-blend-2-sp1-preview-released.aspx But I think by this there will be more reachability and a good move as we don't need yet another product

  • I've created new silverlight app (with web project) in VS2008 using RC0.  The generated html loads app in the browser ok.  However, the generated aspx won't load the app - an error displays "Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Silverlight' or one of its dependencies".

    If I copy the "System.Web.Silverlight.dll" from C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v2.0\Libraries\Server to my project bin directory I'm now asked to "install microsoft silverlight" when viewing page.  Also, this link takes me to Beta 2 download.  By the way, "System.Web.Silverlight.dll" version is 2.0.30825.0, which doesn't seem right since aspx page requires 2.0.30923.0:

    <asp:Silverlight ID="Xaml1" runat="server" Source="~/ClientBin/SilverlightTestApp.xap" MinimumVersion="2.0.30923.0" Width="100%" Height="100%" />

    Any ideas?  Thanks.

  • A couple of things to save some time:

    1) The SP1 Update for Blend is for the Blend 2 product, not the June2008 preview. So you will either need to own a copy of blend, or download the free trial.

    2) You cannot deploy RC0 applications to the web! Its a "preparation" release to ensure that your existing code will work when final release comes out.

    3) RTFM first. There is a lot of information in the Word doc for breaking changes. Taking 30 minutes to read it thoroughly will save you lots of time and unneccesary forum posts!

  • I did not find any DataGrid related breaking changes in the document. But I have encountered an error when setting DataGridColumn.Header to a control.

    See this thread: http://silverlight.net/forums/t/30591.aspx

    Anybody has a idea?

    Do you know why your message is always like this, hardly readable?

    To install sl2 RC0,  just run the install. You do not have to uninstall beta2 first. The RC0 install should remove it for you. But I think you need to uninstall Blend June preview first yourself. Just run the RC0 install, it will tell you what you need to do in the process.
