Real-Time Data Update with Silverlight and Web Services

Sign in to queue


This screencast demonstrates how a distributed application can be built with an ASP.NET middleware, and a Web services back end. The middleware consumes the Web service and uses it and a XAML template to generate a Silverlight front end, delivering a stock quote. The front end combines with ASP.NET controls and AJAX in Silverlight’s windowless mode to provide a full UI, allowing the user to specify stock tickers which will then be passed to the ASP.NET middleware. It demonstrates how a full nTier distributed application can be built using ASP.NET, AJAX, Silverlight and Web services.

    While this demo is cool, it's not really what I had expected/hoped for.

    The web service calls are taking place on the server and emitting XAML.  The XAML is then loaded into the browser Silverlight contol.

    Unless I'm mistaken, if you're looking for an example of client-side WS calls, check out this Sliverlight Quickstart page.
