Visual Studio LightSwitch How Do I Videos

Visual Studio LightSwitch How Do I Videos

  • Comments 20

I’ve done my fair share of How Do I videos over the years, particularly on Visual Basic and related technologies. And even though I really don’t like hearing the sound of my own voice (who is that? ;)) I do love teaching. I also love doing How Do I videos for LightSwitch because the tool really lends itself well to short 5-10 minute videos. I’ll be working on more of them this week and will release them weekly. For now, enjoy the first 5 that we released yesterday on the LightSwitch Developer Center.

These videos are meant to be watched in order because each one builds on the last one. If you are familiar with the old Windows Forms Over Data series I did a few years ago, the application will be familiar to you because we build out the same tables and fields for a simple order management system in this series. It’s amazing how much farther along we get in this series building the application with LightSwitch instead.

In the next few videos I’m going to tackle Custom Validation, Master-Detail forms, Lookup Tables, and some more advanced Queries.

Enjoy!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for these interessant topics.

    I got a new laptop (Windows 7 , 64 bits, Visual Studio 2010 Premium) and when I try to install LightSwitch, I get the following error:

    [03/04/11,11:24:30] setup.exe: [2] ISetupComponent::Pre/Post/Install() failed in ISetupManager::InternalInstallManager() with HRESULT -2147023293.

    I have already desinstalled SilverLight and tried again to install LightSwith, but it didn't work, I got the same error.

    Any help will appreciated

    Thanks

  • I am really like your lessons , thanks for your efforts.

  • Lightswitch 2012 project failed to publish when using SQL Server EXPRESS 2012

    when I Publish the Database Schema

    Hi again. As long as I stay with sql servwe 2008 r2 , there is no problem publishing. But try to use the same vs 2012 with sql server 2012 express and I get the following error when I when I Publish the Database Schema. Of course, without publishing the schema, it fails on the login scrren. THIS WORKS WELL WITH sql server 2008.

    An exception occurred when deploying the d. atabase for the application. Errors occurred while modeling the target database.  Deployment can not continue.

    error is in:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\LightSwitch\v3.0\Publish\v1.8\Microsoft.LightSwitch.Publish.targets

    My guess is there is incompatible versions of code running together, so here is the platform

    a) vs 2012 regular

    b) sql server 2012 express (sp2)

    c) WPI inststalled

    d) LightSwitch for Visual Studio 2012 - Server Configuration with local SQL.

    (note: there is the run time for 2012 on machine too)
