Thanks to everyone who came out to the MSDN TIKI Hut Road show event in Ft. Lauderdale on 12/02/2009 where the topic was Silverlight, Silverlight, and more Silverlight. Joe Healy did a great job with the Silverlight 3 content and I was fortunate to be able to present on what’s coming in Silverlight 4.
Speaking of Silverlight 4 – there are just a few new things coming your way such as:
Tooling Printing API Right-click event handling Webcam/microphone access Mouse wheel support RichTextArea Control ICommand support Clipboard API HTML Hosting with WebBrowser levated trust applications Local file access COM interop Notification (“toast”) API Network authentication Cross-domain Networking changes Keyboard access in full screen mode Text trimming ViewBox Right-to-left, BiDi and complex script Offline DRM H.264 protected content Silverlight as a drop target Data binding IDataErrorInfo and Async Validation DependencyObject Binding StringFormat, TargetNullValue, FallbackValue Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) Data Grid enhancements Fluid UI support in items controls Implicit theming Google Chrome support
