  • It could be done, but it would need a custom shell extension.

  • Thanks yann,

                 I have VS 2010 Ultimate,VS 2010 SP1 SDK installed. I have also install LightSwitch Extensibilety installed.

               But when i look into LightSwitch node in add new project, i coudnt find Lightswitch extensions or from project menu -> Add new Item ->  

    i coudnt found Screen templates.

     So can you tell me what should i do create extensions what i require to run extensions.

  • 1. You have to create a LightSwitch Extension Library project, then add any extensibility items to that, you can't add them to an ordinary LightSwitch project.

    2. You'll be looking for a SHELL template, not a screen template.

  • Hi Satish

    If your are new to LightSwitch, creating Shell Extension is not a way that I could suggest you to follow as novice.

    But, you can find more info about Extending Visual Studio LightSwitch.

    If someone could tell you how to do it then probably he/she would publish that new extension rather than explaining whole process.

    But if you want do play with process of extending capabilities of LightSwitch, some of the other helpfull links are:

    Hope this help
