    The Discussion

      I have a question:

      In a scenario, if I create a simple ASP.NET Applcation, work on it for months, and suddenly i feel the need to use custom SL 3.0 or SL 4.0 controls in my application, how can I do that?

      I can't recreate the whole thing by starting over with the "Silverlight enabled ASP.NET" template!!

      Is it possible??

      Manish - You can embed a Silverlight app inside of your ASP.NET page (or HTML for that matter) using the object tag. When you create a Silverlight application it generates a test page for you. You can grab the object tag code from there.

      I really want to be able to see the questions that have been asked during this segment and the ability to skip to the point in the video where they're being asked. There's been a ton of C9 live content lately, but I just have no way of watching it all, and I have no way to pick and choose the things that interest me because I have no way of telling which questions are being answered.

       

      There must be some way to index this. You guys have the questions coming up on the board, and I assume someone offscreen takes them off once they've been answered. That means you both have the text of the question and the approximate time in the recording when it's being asked... Surely turning that into some sort of simple XML file should be possible? Then at least you could put that information in the video description, or even somehow use that XML file to generate chapter information in the video, which would be even better.

      Along these lines, one of the things we do is wrap the SL object tag into an ASP.Net server control, if we dectect the user has SL installed we render SL, if not we render a downlevel ASP.NET AJAX solution.  we use this the mostly for things like datagrids and file uploads.

      That's actually a great idea. It's been far too long since Niners have built any software for Channel 9. If you're a SL developer, well, why not help us help you? This could be a project on Codeplex. I'd be happy to get involved as well, but not unless other Niners jump in. Heck, YOU are the talent.

       

      Let's go Niners!!

      I'd love it. If this was a CodePlex project I'd definitely help out.

      Great. Nic, fire up a project (including functional spec, design requirements, etc) on Codeplex, mate. Smiley
