Silverlight and Database Connection, and Encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I want to know how to deal with database using Silverlight, I got some basics about connecting to MS SQL Server using Silverlight, yet I can`t get a single field from the database, I have to get all required records as a DataSet and display in a DataGrid. I want to get just a single field to make some operations on such as validating login access and so on. I want to know also, if it is possible to connect to other kinds of database engine like Oracle or MySQL using silverlight? Another thing that I`m facing tight now with silverlight,I need to encrypt some data that will be send over a network to a server yet, when I`ve tried to use the System.Security.Cryptography and tried to use the MD5 Encryption, I`ve failed as it is not supported by silverlight (thats what I understood from the error) got an error when I tried to create an object using this syntax: MD5CryptoServiceProvider md5 = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider(); Hope I can find help over here ...
