Expression Blend 4 Sliverlight Application + Website RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a Sliverlight Application + Website in Expression Blend 4. I had two questions.

    1) How do I connect this application to a database on a server?

    2) How do I use the Membership/Authentication feature to have a secure login for my website?

    I have done a lot of research and cannot find an answer that works.

  • Howdy,

    Typically you would use a Web Service to connect to a database and or a server that may perform given functions, so you could do some research around creating those, specifically search for WCF services and work from there.

    In terms of the membership provider scenario, that is a feature of IIS I believe and is commonly used in ASP.Net applications. There is nothing stopping you from again creating a web service that enables you to work with it.

    Hope that gives you some direction.
