Convert Silverlight Appliaction to Lightswitch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We have a SharePoint web part developed using silverlight and C# (used MVVM). Now the issue is we cannot use this web part on Iphone or Ipad as silverlight apps doesn't work on Iphone or Ipad.

    So we are thinking to convert Silverlight application to Lightswitch.

    Can someone please tell me is it possible or easy to convert silverlight application to Lightswitch, if so what are the steps.

    Thank you.

  • There is no automatic conversion tool. Not from silverlight to LightSwitch silverlight client and definitely not from silverlight to html5 client (the one you are probably targetting).

    Best steps are to first get familiar with LightSwitch and try to understand how the MVVM approach is used (I'm mentioning this, because that will be an anchor point for you, since your legacy source is silverlight).
