Are there screen templates missing in the latest version? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have VS2012 Professional and it is fully updated.  I am investigating LightSwitch... I created a C# LightSwitch project.  When I want to create a screen, I noticed that there are only the following:

    • Browse Data Screen
    • View Details Screen
    • Add/Edit Details Screen

    However, in all of the tutorials that I've seen, there is a different list of screens:

    • Details Screen
    • Editable Grid Screen
    • List and Details Screen
    • New Data Screen
    • Search Data Screen

    Some of these seem very useful, but are not in my project.  Can someone please tell me where they can be downloaded?

    Thanks,

    Mike

  • The first list is the templates for HTML clients. The second list is templates for Silverlight clients. There are different templates because the usage scenarios and workflows are different for each of the clients.
