LightSwitch Team “How To” Articles and New Developer Center Content

  • Comments 6

Over on the LightSwitch team blog we’ve been posting a series of “How To” articles that have gotten pretty popular that you probably want to check out if you’re evaluating LightSwitch. Most of these How To articles cover topics not already covered in the How Do I videos.



Check this How To article feed as we post more on the team blog! 

Developer Center Update:

We also made some updates to the LightSwitch Developer Center that hopefully will make it easier to navigate task-based content. The LightSwitch Developer Center is your one-stop-shop for getting started with and learning about LightSwitch :-). If you take a look at the home page and Learn page, we’ve added a section that calls out some focused learning content around building & deploying applications as well as some good links to learn more about the architecture of LightSwitch.


More content will build up as we approach Beta 2 so I wanted to start organizing things by tasks/topics. We’re also putting together a list of community sites and third-party extensions as we approach RTM so if you’re talking/teaching about LightSwitch right now I want to hear from you. ;-)

  • I'm not sure how it'd fit in with the lightswitch team's immediate goals, but for myself I'd be most interested in a demo or tutorial which shows how easy it is to build a lightswitch app which does not look like a lightswitch app. I will be much more interested in lightswitch v1 if the ui can be designed almost as freely as it could have been in silverlight or winforms...without having to completely break the very nice design experience that lightswitch currently offers.

  • hi Ms.Beth pleas how can I DO  Creating a Custom Search Screen WITH TOW DAT START DATE - END DATE ?

  • @Michael - There is a whole extensibility model for LightSwitch that allows you to create your own shells, themes, screen templates and more. We are working with partners and control vendors to create these extensions so you will see a lot more available as the ecosystem grows. Once Beta2 releases we will have a lot more specific information on how to build these extensions. You can see a quick demo of a custom shell in this video:

    @anwaralhasan Check out this post on how to do that:
