Lab 10 - Using the MVVM Pattern in Silverlight Applications

Once you've learned the fundamentals of Silverlight you'll want to learn about best practices that can be applied to your applications to allow for better code re-use, testing and simplified maintenance. In this video Dan and John walk through exercises 1-3 of the MVVM lab and discuss what the MVVM pattern is and why you want to use it. They demonstrate several key aspects of MVVM including the role of service classes, how to create ViewModel classes, how to bind a ViewModel to a View, and how to leverage commanding.

    The Discussion

    • User profile image

      Hey guys.  I'm working on a Document Management tool written in Silverlight using the MVVM pattern, and I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for how to handle transmission of large files to and from our document repository.  The architecture and methodology for accessing documents is as follows:  A power user has access to a number of UNC paths where all the docs are located and when the user/client needs a doc, Silverlight is the interface he/she uses with a set of WCF services sitting between the client and the docs.  The problem I'm having is downloading and uploading files > 30MB in size.  I assumed it was an IIS config or Web Config setting, but I couldn't find anything.  Anyway, I know this was a mouthful, but any help would be much appreciated.
