Silverlight Project Wizard

12 September 2011

As I was getting ready to start documenting the new reporting features coming in our second release in 2011, I came across a cool little project template when starting up a Silverlight project:

Needless to say I got curious so I clicked on it to see what kinds of things could be done with the new Wizard. I was pleasantly surprised:

In my brief Silverlight experience, I have found it a pain to produce the standard types of layouts required of almost all software packages. This problem was definitely ameliorated by our fantastic Docking and LayoutControl. This Wizard is a definite += 1 on how easy it will be to produce new Silverlight Applications because it leverages both the Docking and the LayoutControl to produce the kinds of layouts our users have come to expect in our software. Here is the result after leaving the defaults and clicking Create Project:

Silverlight Application

This all took a matter of seconds.

Happy Coding!

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!
