Silverlight 4 with VS 2010 Tutorial: Part I. In this article we will see what we can achieve in Silverlight 4; which is not possible or partially possible in Silverlight.
 

Introduction

In this article we will see what we can achieve in Silverlight 4; which is not possible or partially possible in Silverlight 3. We will compare the features with WPF 3.0, Silverlight 3 and VS 2008 with VS 2010 and Silverlight 4.

Design & Preview in VS 2010 for Silverlight 4

As you know in VS 2008, we are able to design and preview the design. But it is not possible for Silverlight 3 design and preview.

As Visual Studio 2010 is the only platform which supports Silverlight 4 and it has support for Design and Preview for Silverlight 4.

Properties for Controls for Silverlight 4

We have Properties to set for WPF controls in VS 2008 but in Silverlight 3 with VS 2008 it is not possible.

But in Silverlight 4 with VS 2010, we can see each and every property and we can change it too.
