Connecting Silverlight to Dynamics CRM


As I promised in the channel9 video on CRM & Silverlight, I’m posting the sample code with a slight (3 weeks!) delay. Sorry folks.

For information on Microsoft Silverlight and its development, please view the Get Started page.

There are a variety of ways you can connect a Silverlight client to CRM. In the below example we’re using a proxy approach by having a WCF service sitting in between Silverlight control and CRM web services.

1. Download the code

2. Download the public VPC and the below differencing disk containing the deployed solution.

Note: This source code and VPC is provided "as is" and without any warranties or support from Microsoft.

Happy coding!

    What do you need to use WCF?

    Do have tobuy a WCF to use this method of connection? What version and licences of WCF do I need?

    Thanks
