Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight, now in VB Flavor

Many have asked for a Visual Basic version of the Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight (aka Prism v2).  We are pleased to offer the Hands-On Labs and Quickstarts in Visual Basic.  While the Composite Application Library is still in C#, the examples of how to use the library are in VB for this….


Building a Prism Application WebCast: Part II Available

The second web cast on building our Prism application is now available on Channel 9. Erwin van der Valk and I are building a sample Silverlight Prism application to aggregate Digg and Twitters searches.  It will look something like the picture below when we’re done: The first part of our web cast created a shell…


Prism V2 Refreshed

We’ve refreshed the Prism V2 release bits on MSDN due to a couple issues we found and decided were worth updating the bits.

Common Service Locator for Silverlight Now Available

One of the goals of Prism was to avoid coupling too closely with any particular Dependency Injection container.  To that end, the first version of Prism had defined an IContainerFacade that anything from the library side of Prism would interact with and we supplied an adapter for Unity Prism. It turns out there were a…
