Silverlight controls for DXv2 11.2

21 December 2011

As I stated in one of my most recent and (most heavily commented) blog posts, we made the decision to target Silverlight 5 for our Silverlight controls in v2011 vol 2. Now, that may or may not have been the right decision to make, but make it we did. Since Microsoft didn’t release Silverlight 5 until 9 December, two weeks after our release, this meant that our initial release for DXv2 was without one quarter of the platforms we support. This was bad for you, our customers, as well as for us.

All that will be academic pretty soon since we shall be releasing DXperience v2011 vol 2.6 tomorrow morning, Thursday 22 December. This release will contain the full set of Silverlight controls.

Thank you, DX team!

If you will enhance XAF by providing a Silverlight UI, then the client side can be started and run within browsers :)

A little bit awkward for those whose subscriptions ran out between these two dates!

Wonderful, if only Christmas did not get in the way of playing with the code ;-)

I am playing with your SL scheduler right now.

And it is absolutely awesome!

I have been missing this control for long, 4 (four long) years. Now we can, and certainly will, rewrite our ASPx planning application with SL!

The ASPxScheduler is an excellent piece of control, but ASPx can simply not compete with the usability of SL.
