  • Blog Post: Using relative addresses for services in Silverlight applications

    One of the biggest complaints about how Add Service Reference works for Silverlight applications is that the address it creates on the client config file (ServiceReferences.ClientConfig) points to the VS "test" web service (Cassini), something like http://localhost:12345/Service1.svc. It works perfectly...
  • Blog Post: Enabling cross-domain calls for SL apps on self-hosted TCP services

    On a post a couple of years back, I showed a solution to enable cross-domain calls for Silverlight apps on self-hosted WCF services . In Silverlight 4, we added a new transport (net.tcp), which needs its own policy file as well (see more details at

This new mode was added mostly to enable the performance improvements in the Polling Duplex protocol , but it can also be used by itself, such...

This post will show how to plug additional code to WCF in Silverlight to enable that. It will make...

The support is limited to XML services (i.e., JSON is not supported...
  • Blog Post: Enabling cross-domain calls for Silverlight apps on self-hosted web services

    In order for a Silverlight (or Flash) app coming from one domain to be able to consume data from services in a different domain, the service must "allow" the app to do so by providing a policy file which grants access (to prevent all sorts of cross-site scripting attacks). This policy file...
