VS2010 Silverlight 4 - Getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when loading a

In Visual Studio 2010 I'm trying to use the Blacklight Controls (http://blacklight.codeplex.com/releases/view/37652) in my own project (and actually included the Blacklight.Controls project in my solution so that I could debug what was going on) and... after making all the XAML changes needed to incorporate the Blacklight navigation menu with my stuff in the innermost grid... everything compiled ok when doing a Build.  When I run it there's a reference to a resource dictionary in the XAML that fails with the object reference error above.  The XAML is as follows:       <UserControl.Resources>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager x:Key="ResourceDictionaryManager">       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager.ResourceDictionaries>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryCollection>       <controls:ResourceDictionary Path="/Blacklight.Showcase;component/ResourceDictionaries/DavesGlossyControls.xaml">       <controls:ResourceDictionary.ResourceKeys>       <controls:ResourceKeyCollection>       <controls:ResourceKey ResourceName="GlossyBlackScrollViewer" />       </controls:ResourceKeyCollection>     &

why can't i run silverlight w/ wcf in iis but VS2010 built-in ASP.Net development server?

 Both VS200 and IIS are in my local machine. Suppose they have the same permission. I create a silverlight4 w/ wcf ria service project. The project runs well in VS2010 built-in ASP.Net development server. It doesn't work well after i publish it to IIS. I only can see its static content but not the .svc. i try to browse the .svc, it always show HTTP 500 error. I doubt if i do not open the asp.net runtime setting sth in IIS? Thanks!

vs2010 silverlight designer error


Hi all,

After installing Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight Tools for VS 2010, I tried to generate a new Silverlight project and got an error in the xaml designer. 

None of the .xaml files generated by VS can be opened in design mode.

I have the KB30319.348 installed. The error is reproduced below:



Value cannot be null.Parameter name: parentContext

at Microsoft.Windows.Design.Metadata.ReflectionMetadataContext..ctor(IMetadataContext parentContext) at MS.Internal.Host.ProjectMetadataContext..ctor(IMetadataContext platformMetadata, AssemblyReferenceProvider referenceProvider) at MS.Internal.Host.ProjectMetadataContext.FromReferences(AssemblyReferenceProvider referenceProvider) at MS.Internal.Designer.VSDesigner.GetMetadataForDesignerContext(DesignerContext designerContext) at MS.Internal.Host.PersistenceSubsystem.Load() at MS.Internal.Host.Designer.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSDesigner.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSIsolatedDesigner.VSIsolatedView.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSIsolatedDesigner.VSIsolatedDesignerFactory.Load(IsolatedView view) at MS.Internal.Host.Isolation.IsolatedDesigner.BootstrapProxy.LoadDesigner(IsolatedDesignerFactory factory, IsolatedView view) at MS.Internal.Host.Isolation.IsolatedDesigner.BootstrapProxy.Loa

DataSources in VS2010 works for WPF but not Silverlight


In WPF, when I connect to an ASMX web service that I built, my DataSources pane shows all of the return objects and I can drill down on them and see the contents so that I can bind to my controls.

However, when I create the same service reference in a Silverlight 4.0 using .NET 4.0, the datasources pane only shows the return objects and I cannot drill into them to see their contents.

Am I doing something wrong or is there some difference in the way WPF and Silverlight handle ASMX web services?

Silverlight calling WCF service on IIS 5.1, deployed by VS2010



Hi everyone,

I just started to learn silverlight. I had no choice then to learn web deployment applications and WCF services.

So I created a Silverlight application calling a WCF services functions storing and retrieving informations on a Database.

So I installed IIS 5.1 on my XP Pro and I published the Web project using VS 2010. Everything is fine so far with some settings I made on IIS.

But when I run the aspx page the Silverlight code runs good except when it is time to call the WCF services functionnalities.

Nothing happen.

Calls to the WCF services don't work. I cannot figure out why.

It's been hours I search on the net but nothing helps.

Thanks for your help.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Building a grouping Grid with GridView and ASP.NET AJAX toolkit CollapsiblePanel

I've posted an update to this post to apply on demand loading of Details data using ASP.NET AJAX PageMethods. I'm demonstrating the usage if CollapsiblePanelExtender client events on the new post. Check it out.

I admit, Matt Berseth is really inspiring me! Few days ago I pass through 2 of his great posts:

.Surrounding your Data Table and Dialog Controls with ComponentArt Styled Panels
.Building a Grouping Grid with the ASP.NET 3.5 LinqDataSource and ListView Controls
The first one is pure design tips one which I used for making good presentation of my demo here. The 2nd post is actually the idea.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

Silverlight Simple Animation

Silverlight has several built in techniques for animating controls. Many of these technologies are particularly useful for creating simple animations meant to decorate a web page with eye catching movement that draws the reader's attention. In this post I will skip over these decorative technologies, and instead show how to create a simple animation using a technique similar to those used in many games.

Feature available to Silverlight 4 with VS 2010.

In Part I of this article series we have seen some features available to Silverlight 4 with VS 2010. We will continue to explore more in this article.

Using the WPF Toolkit DataGrid

Silverlight Slideshow Viewer for SharePoint

This series will walk through the Building Blocks that I have created to demonstrate and improve the SharePoint end user experience. I have been using many of these techniques in my developer focused demos for SharePoint 2010 (and in some cases SharePoint 2007). My plan is to use this post series to distribute my code and provide more detail on the why and the how of many of my code samples

Easier Silverlight Development against SharePoint

I have been spending quite a bit of time lately working with Silverlight 3 and SharePoint. One of the first big shifts for me is that Silverlight Development is Client development. Silverlight runs in the browser, but it runs on the client, so no SharePoint Object Model code. You have to access all of the goodness that is SharePoint through its web services.

WPF / Silverlight tutorial: Visibility property and binding

It enables you to set Visibility of certain UIElement objects to different states like: Visible, Collapsed and Hidden (not supported by Silverlight). This tutorial shows you how to use it and how to bind to Visibility property
