Using same Model (and ViewModel) in WPF and Silverlight - is it possible?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF


I am well into a WPF application, structure with MVVM, with the Model layer being in a separate project. This application must now be changed to Silverlight, but I am having a hard time 'recycling' what I have already made in MVVM. For example, from the Silverlight project I am unable to reference anything but another Silverlight project, so my existing Model layer, which is in a separate class library project cannot be referenced. Do I really need to move everything into Silverlight projects - are two separate WPF and Silverlight applications not able to share the same Model (and ViewModel) layers?

Fully Embracing the Model-View-ViewModel Pattern in WPF

I'm trying to get my head around the M-V-VM pattern as it is used with WPF. So far I have been successful in implementing this pattern but it's perfect (yet). There are a number of common UI workflows that I can't figure out how to implement in this pattern such as:1. A user clicks a button that should show a modal dialog box. Usually the VM has a command on it that the button is bound to and something executes. However, what needs to execute is a UI behavior (opening the dialog box). The VM should not open the dialog box (that would be wrong because the VM now has to know something about the UI). The Window or UserControl or Page inwhich the command was initiated should open the dialog box.2. A user clicks a button that executes a command on a VM. However, this is a long-running command and I'd like to show the WaitCursor during this operation. This is a UI function, not a VM function. Should the VM fire an event? And if so, how does the Xaml handle it?So, M-V-VM experts out there, what am I missing? Help me to see the light...Dave

Silverlight Client Object Model - List Fields Names


I'm trying to get the DisplayName of the Fields of a list through the Client Object Model (Silverlight)

I can retrieve the fields of a list as an authenticated user but not as anonymous: getting list.fields as anonymous simply returns Access Denied.

Is there a way to enable list.fields for the Client Object Model?

Or is there any other way of getting the DisplayName of Fields of a List?

Silverlight Application using Sharepoint as a datasource using the Client Object Model



In my scenario i have a Silverlight application hosted in ASP.NET. I want to push/pull data from a sharepoint site using the Client Object Model. Is this possible?

Notice that i don't want my Silverlight app as a web part...it is hosted in asp.net and just uses Sharepoint 2010 as a data source. Will the Client Object Model work here or are sharepoint web services the only way out??. I can host both the SL app and the sharepoint site in the same domain if required...

Please advice





How to update workflow task and terminate workflow using silverlight client object model.



I have created a sequential workflow using visual studio. I also created a content type inherited from the workflow-task content type. Workflow creates a task-item in the task list. I want to update the workflow task using the silverlight client object model. I find on the internet and WorkflowTask.AlterTask() method to update the workflow task item. But I didn't find the equivalent of WorkflowTask.AlterTask(). Can any one help me to update the workflow task from the silverlight client object model?

I also want to terminate the workflow instance using silverlight client object model, but i didn't find any way to terminate the workflow using client object model?

Model View ViewModel question



I´m playing around with XAML and MVVM, and have a question about the wiring between the model and the viewmodel:

If I have a model that updates its data on random times, what wiring is used between the model and the viewmodel to let the viewmodel know that the model has changed?.

Between the view and viewmodel a bindings and NotifyPropertyChanged would take care of this.

SharePoint 2010 site using FQDN and Silverlight Client object model issues


I am working a FQDN installation of SP2010 site and I am having touble connecting to it from Silverlight, when my Silverlight app is running outside that SP2010.
Just to include the note, that if I use the CLR client object model, from a Console Application, I am able to connect to the FQDN SP 2010 site, and get all data I need. Using the CLR and monitoring with fiddler there are two consequent requests made: first GET to http://my_sp2010_site_fqdn/_vti_bin/sites.asmx, then POST to http://my_sp2010_site_fqdn/_vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery and Everything works fine.
However when it comes to the Silverlight Client I have troubles.
If I put my silverlight application in a web part inside my site, it works. If I put it on a regular site, outside SP - it does not work and following behavior is observed:

There is initial request sent to
but there is no consequent request to http://my_sp2010_site_fqdn/_vti_bin/client.svc
That second request does not even show up in fiddler.

Using Silverlight Client Object Model outside Sharepoint ?


Is there any way to make the Silverlight Client Object work with SharePoint 2010, if the Silverlight Application is not hosted inside the SharePoint itself? So far I was able to make it work only if I host my Silverlight inside SharePoint, and I can't make it work in a stand-alone Silverlight Application. I have clieantaccesspolicy file within the sharepoint site I want to connect to, but the client itself does not work. There is initial request sent to
but there is no consequent request to http://my_sp2010_site_fqdn/_vti_bin/client.svc and my RequestFailed handler is hit with following exception:

e.Exception is SecurityException:
   at System.Net.Browser.AsyncHelper.BeginOnUI(SendOrPostCallback beginMethod, Object state)
   at System.Net.Browser.BrowserHttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
