Book Review: Microsoft Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration

Posted by Steve Pietrek on October 18, 2010

If you don’t already know, I am passionate about Silverlight. I love working in it. I love talking about it. Where Silverlight really shines is when it is integrated with SharePoint. When calling SharePoint 2007 web services (assuming you have the cross domain files defined) allow you to create rich applications that can be integrated in (or outside) of SharePoint very quickly. The biggest issue working with SharePoint 2007 is if the web service doesn’t have the necessary API’s. If the web service doesn’t have the required API’s, you had to write custom web services or remove the feature. I was quite excited to hear that Microsoft was going to support a new way to access SharePoint content from a Silverlight application in SharePoint 2010. The feature is known as the Client Object Model. The book Microsoft Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration by Gastón C. Hillar covers the new Client Object Model functionality along with WCF Services.

Chapter 1 is an introduction chapter. The first thing it covers is the benefits of Silverlight with SharePoint. The next section discusses setting up a development environment. I like how it goes through each application and gives a description of the application. Developers need to understand how to manually install the application rather than relying on Web Platform Installer. The 3rd section walks through creating a Silverlight application. Finally, once the application is built, the steps to deploy the Silverlight application to SharePoint is covered.

In Chapter 2, you begin learning how to interacting with SharePoint data and services. When working with SharePoint content, you need to have a full understanding of the fields you are working with. One great tip is using the Server Explorer to view the InternalName and FieldValueType properties of a field. The book then goes through some examples of using the Client Object Model to interact with SharePoint content. It does so by listing out the code up front and then diving into each method. Many times you see the detail of how something is done and then see the full source listing. It did take a bit of switching back and forth between pages to understand what was going on. When working with Silverlight, all requests are asynchronous; however, unlike SharePoint 2007, the request is on a different thread. In order to update the UI, you must use Dispatcher.BeginInvoke. The book does a good job of covering this. The next area is hooking up your Silverlight application with SharePoint and how to debug it. Finally, the book covers tips on 32-bit vs. 64-bit, Visual Studio 2010 multi-monitor support, scalability, and multiple browsers.

Chapter 3 expands on the previous chapter by adding error handling and more CRUD operations (outside of READ). The first CRUD operation is Create. It walks through inserting items using the Client Object Model. The chapter demonstrates how to handle asynchronous calls when the request is successful and unsuccessful. One nice piece is it shows using the Server Explorer to work with more complex field types (Priority and Status). Too many times you see examples where only simple field types (string, number, and date) are used. The next section in the chapter is creating multiple Silverlight applications that communicate with each other – a huge plus IMO. Finally, the chapter finishes the CRUD operations by cover delete and update using the Client Object Model.

Chapter 4 covers more complex topics to create dynamic business solutions. The first section in the chapter (quite a bit of content) is creating Silverlight application that leverages external content types (BCS) in order to integrate with external databases. The next section discusses the process of creating an out-of-the-browser application. The final section walks through interacting with SharePoint workflows.

Chapter 5 discusses a new feature in SharePoint 2010 and that is the WCF Data Services. Instead of interacting with SharePoint 2010 data using the Client Object Model, your Silverlight application can consume data exposed by WCF Data Services. WCF Data Services supports the Open Data Protocol (OData) which has become quite popular recently. WCD Data Services allows you to call URL (i.e. ListData.svc) to retrieve content – similar but not as feature rich as RPC that could be used by Silverlight to call SharePoint 2007 content. The chapter starts off discussing using ListData.svc to retrieve list information. The next section walks through displaying SharePoint list content consuming a SharePoint 2010 WCF Data Service. The next section covers using SharePoint 2010 WCF Data Services to perform CRUD operations. Finally, the chapter covers advanced debugging techniques such as using Fiddler to debug HTTP requests and using the SharePoint Developer Dashboard.

Chapter 6 covers interacting with rich media and animations. These are two areas where Silverlight really shines and is very complex to do in standard SharePoint web parts.

I enjoyed reading Microsoft Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration. I truly believe Silverlight is a game changer when it comes to SharePoint. Being able to create applications that integrate with SharePoint either in the browser, out-of-the-browser, in a Windows Gadget, or on a Windows 7 Phone is very powerful. I am amazed how much more productive I am creating Silverlight applications compared to traditional SharePoint web parts. The only area missing from the book is a chapter on MVVM. I would recommend this book to developers who have some basic knowledge in Silverlight and SharePoint – not for beginners.

Error Compiling Old Visual Studio Project

Posted by Steve Pietrek on September 21, 2010

So I had one of those idiot moments. I am preparing for a SharePoint 2007 Development training class I am giving next week. I was attempting to compile a Visual Studio project that defined my web part definitions. I received the following error when I attempted to compile the application. I was referencing the Microsoft.SharePoint assembly correctly.

The type or namespace name ‘SharePoint’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Microsoft’ (are you missing an assembly reference?)

This particular project had not been compiled since before SP2 was released. I am sure you can see where this is going. Anyway, after pulling my hair out for 30 minutes, I soon realized my mistake. Since the project was last compiled prior to SP2, the target framework was still set back to “.NET Framework 2.0”. Setting the target framework to “.NET Framework 3.0” resolved my issue.

Light The Night Walk

Posted by Steve Pietrek on August 20, 2010

The family and I will be walking in the Light The Night’s Durham Walk at American Tobacco Campus on Oct 21, 2010 for the Cardinal Solutions – Raleigh team.

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer lives.

  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives.

Microsoft Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration

Posted by Steve Pietrek on August 19, 2010

As most of you know, I am a HUGE fan of both SharePoint and Silverlight. The two of them go together like peanut butter and vanilla ice cream. I am always amazed how quickly I can build out Silverlight applications that can be integrated with SharePoint. I have successfully integrated over 60 Silverlight applications over the past 18 months. SharePoint 2010’s Client Object Model opens a very large opportunity to build some really cool Silverlight applications.

I am quite happy to see a new Silverlight/SharePoint book that covers the latest versions of the respective products. The book is Microsoft Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration by Gaston Hillar.

Table of Contents can be found below:

  1. Integrating Silverlight 4 with SharePoint 2010 – can be downloaded here
  2. Deploying and Debugging Techniques for Silverlight and SharePoint
  3. Interacting with Data on the SharePoint Server
  4. Creating Dynamic Business Solutions
  5. Working with WCF Data Services
  6. Interacting with Rich Media and Animations

PACKT sent me a review copy of the book and it was delivered yesterday. Expect a full review soon!

July 2010 TRISPUG Meeting Announcement

Posted by Steve Pietrek on July 2, 2010

Now that I am officially down in Raleigh – more on that later – I wanted to send out a quick note that there will be a TRISPUG meeting on July 6th from 6:00 – 8:00.

Josh Carlisle will be presenting on the new and improved developer experience with SharePoint 2010. From the improved debugging and SharePoint project experience with Visual Studio 2010 to some of the new tools, techniques, and APIs available you will get introduced to a high level overview on the major enhancements, along with demos and code samples, and when available some new best practices. Some of the key topics we’ll be covering are the new Visual Studio SharePoint Project Types, Sandboxed Solutions, Feature Framework Enhancements, Client Object Model, Linq to SharePoint, and Business Connectivity Services just to name a few. All the features that will be covered are available in SharePoint Foundation (formerly WSS) so this will apply whether your running SharePoint Foundation or SharePoint Server.

The meeting will be at Tek Systems – Raleigh Office.

Hope to see everyone there.
