  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 7 – Search

    I got a bit ahead of myself with my desire to move on to styling the app, and decided instead to focus on a few more pieces of business app functionality first. And so, I’d like to show an approach for doing searching on more than one attribute. I want to disclaim this a bit, as I haven’t completely...
  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 6 – Pagination

    Even though we parameterized the query for Artists in the last step, it could still return a large number of entities depending on the data in question. RIA provides a means to handle this via the DataPager control and what Brad Abrahms calls “connect-the-dots” data binding. I wanted to do the same for...
  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 5 – Read Only Data

    Opening Artists.xaml, I’d like to make it so I can search for an artist, and then see all their associated albums and tracks. This is a simple 3-level hierarchy as evident in the data model and the object model created from it. Accordingly, I’d like to start with this by adding 3 data grids to view before...

  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 3 – Domain Service

    Now that we have a model built over the Chinook database tables, the next step to take is to build a domain service that exposes those entities to the client tier (as I mentioned in my previous post.) The RIA services team encourages you to do this in the Services folder of the server-side project, so...
  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 2 – Model

    As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ll be using the Chinook Database for this series. Chinook provides a nice set of tables dealing with music, each with non-trivial data and non-trivial relationships (as shown below): It’s not quite an ERP system, but it’s not as small or overused as some of...
  • Blog Post: 12 Days of RIA – Day 1 – Solution

    ISVs I work with have expressed a lot of interest in the recent announcements about building Line of Business applications on the RIA stack, and so I thought it would be a good idea to blog about building a simple app that demos how to do RIA from the ground up, and points out obstacles and workarounds...
