In this article we are going to continue to explore the WCF Ria Services with Silverlight 5.
 
As we saw in our prevoius example WCF Ria Services provide us with a clean and simple way of binding our control to our data model .
 
Now lets go one step further I would like to design a Complete User Page using WCF Ria Services .
 
Lets get started . Create a new page NewPage.xaml .
 
Go to the Data Source .



Expand the Tree of the Article Entity .



Select the ArticleID and say customize .



Select the Associated Control as ComboBox .


 
Click ok . and the icon changes to combo box as shown below :
 

 
Simply Drag and Drop the Article Id  on to the NewPage.xaml . The Design Page should now look as below :

 
 
Modify the App.xaml to make the NewPage.xaml as the start up and give it a run .
 


Now go back to the Data Source . select Title and customize .



Select the Associated Control as TextBlock .



Click Ok and the icon changes to TextBlock .



Similarly modify for the Body .



Drag and Drop both to the designer area .



Build and Run it . Title and Body corresponding to the article id are displayed .



Modify the article Id .



Title and Body are modified as shown below :
