How to: Sharepoint Silverlight Webpart


People now-a-days are vying for rich user experience and WPF and Silverlight are no doubt the winners atleast from Microsoft Technologies perspective. Standing in the same league I thought of writing an article for creating Silverlight web part for Sharepoint but later found that my colleague has already done that. Why re-invent the wheel :)..

This article describes how to create a very simple Microsoft Silverlight Web Part in ASP.NET that hosts a canvas (XAML), which can have events mapped to ECMAScript (JScript, JavaScript). The Silverlight Web Part uses Microsoft Silverlight only on the client side, and is based on the Microsoft Silverlight 1.0 Runtime. You can then use the Silverlight Web Part in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 to display a canvas (XAML).
