Feeling a bit loopy
A looping construct is one that is often requested in the Live Framework forum discussions regarding scripting. With the latest release you can now perform loops and iterate over collections in resource scripts. In the following example we will walk through building a function that creates a batch of...

Building a better library through blog conversations
In my helper library post Jamie Thompson rightly points out that the MeshObject helper doesn’t help that much in a MEWA since you primarily use the MeshApplicationService instead. So he added a few methods to extend the pattern to the MEWAs . Thx Jamie!

I’m just async. Yes, I’m only async.
Some people have noticed (especially those who read the release notes ) that the new Live Framework April CTP removed all the synchronous methods from the Silverlight MEWA library. Sometimes when big changes happen, I like to cull internal email discussions for blog posts since some of our internal teams...

Live Framework now supports the Windows Live ID Client SDK!
Until now. if you were building a .NET client application for Live Framework you had to ask the use for his username and password and use that to log in on his behalf. In general its bad form to need to expose the credentials to anyone except the authentication provider. Rong Cao has posted an announcement...

LINQing to the Live Framework (or “CreateQuery vs Entries”)
There are two possible different ways to query in the Live Framework if you are using the .NET or Silverlight Toolkits. They look very similar but behave differently. Let’s say we want to find all the Mesh Objects which start with the letter ‘M’ and generate a string of all of their titles. We might...

Moving from local LOE to local LOE
How Do I Ensure My Mesh Object Is Available Everywhere I Need It? Let’s say you have a scenario in which you have a regular WPF client application which is going to create and manage its own mesh objects in the local Live Operating Environment (LOE) on the device. Now let’s say you install that same...

Live fx Helper Class
Everyone seems to have their own Live fx helper class. I use one myself to cleanup the sample code that I build to demonstrate functionality or to reproduce reported problems. In the past in the forums I’ve just put a little caveat into discussion to ignore that section of the code because it is indeed...

Local LOE and Fiddler woe
Fiddler and the Live fx Resource Browser are the dynamic duo that debug my Live Framework applications. Recently I started doing some things that were specific to the local Live Operating Environment (LOE) and Fiddler doesn’t do that by default. In order to use Fiddler with a local port you have...

Cleaning up my mesh
After working with the Live Framework for a while I tended to accumulate a lot of random Mesh Objects as I build little samples to test this or that. I was just leaving these laying around but it was starting to clutter my account. And since the objects order is not the same on each request I have to...

Meshing in C++ (CLI)
I recently was asked about accessing the Live Framework from C++. Taking this from the standpoint of “Hey, I have a regular old C++ application. How can I start putting my stuff into Live Services using Live fx?” there are a couple of options. REST/XML C++ CLI Interop These are reasonable alternatives...

Navigating LiveFX with .NET
When first given a new SDK, what I do is immediately try to figure out the object model. This is how I try to understand what the SDK developer’s intent was and how he thinks I will or should use the new tools provided. Since documentation on the object model for the Live Framework toolkits is still...

But what can I *do* with it?

Let Me Count The Ways . He breaks it down clearly and concisely and you may just be a bit surprised at what you can...
