Silverlight - Optimize Loading An XAP File With A Website?
Jun 10, 2010
I've been developing a game using Silverlight 4 and silversprite (http://silversprite.codeplex.com/)
This game is HEAVILY content dependent, using a lot of audio and images. My content folder is around 90 mbs worth of stuff. And because of that, my XAP file is around 60 MB, and takes 5 minutes to download from the website before any user can start playing.
I am using Visual Web Developer 2010 to create my site and load the XAP. Is there a way where I can take content out of my XAP and put it in my ASP.net site project? Or perhaps upload my content files to the site's storage?
This would make my XAP file much quicker to download.
We have an application clusteredbrain.com designed on Silverlight 2.0 connected with OLAP data cubes
Onn IE it works fine but on FireFox or Chrome it doesnot load giving following error
This is the error Message Given by Firefox whwn it tries to call a WCF Webservice.
"Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid. Check InnerException for exception details. at System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaiseExceptionIfNecessary() at OlapSilverlightCharts.ServiceReference2.GetChartDataCompletedEventArgs.get_Result() at OlapSilverlightCharts.MainPage1.webService_GetChartDataCompleted(Object sender, GetChartDataCompletedEventArgs e) at OlapSilverlightCharts.ServiceReference2.Service1Client.OnGetChartDataCompleted(Object state)"
We have ClienAccesspolicy and crossdomain policy in place.
I am interesting on log down the recent 100 visitors around the world whom have visited to my website and display their country information and IP address on the website developed by Silverlight platform.
Where can I get accurate data for detecting the visitors' IP address and geo-location information?
If i have two aspx pages in each of them i want to put differents silverlight contents (2 differents usercontol) what can i do?.. am i obliged to add 2 silverlight projects with my asp.net website and insert in each page an *.xap content..?
I have the following scenario: a Silverlight application (constructed to be OOB) embedded at an ASP.NET website where, if the user already installed it, a label saying that is displayed; otherwise, an install button appears. Eventually I can update the .xap file available in the website.Now the problem: if the user executes the application through his Desktop/Start Menu, i'm able to update the application and suggest the user to restart it. But, if I update the .xap file and upload it again to the website, apparently no "Silverlight update" occurs, it is displayed as a new application (if the user install it again, an application icon is displayed at his desktop).
I'd like to know how (and if) I can integrate silverlight generated user controls in a non-silverlight projectless website (built in ASP.NET 4.0) also, How can I access a dataset that is edited on a silverlight gridview control?
I am just getting started with Silverlight and have recently added a Silverlight project to an established solution. In this particular scenario my solution included an existing ASP.NET web site which Visual Studio kindly offered to integrated my Silverlight application into, which I accepted.
So everything is fine and all, and the Silverlight XAP is being copied to the web site's ClientBin directory when i was buiding solution through visual studio, But
I want same thing through using nant script when i am used nant script that time all project in the solution are build but recenty added silverlight website do not create XAP's in ClientBin dierctory.
it opens a filedialog, gets the selected file, transfers it to asp.net which saves it to the server, but i want to know how to implement a progress bar for it. for big files, and multiple file uploads, i will need to know the progress of the file upload to the server, is this possible?
Here is an easy one:I need a stable simple file uploader with a progress bar, I have found lots of fancy ones from the search. However, I need the community opinion on which ones to go with? Tutorial links would be appreciated.BOUNTY: I have a FileStream which I would like to upload to a server, below is a sample server server URL:string uploadUri;string SavedFileName = "testXRay.jpg" uploadUri = @"http://localhost/MyApplication/Upload/Images/" + SavedFileName;I am adding a bounty in hope to get a working solution which I could use from my SL application. MyApplication is hosted in IIS.
I have this situation where I need to display a bunch of files pulled from a Sharepoint site in a Silverlight application. I use a WCF service to get the data from the Sharepoint site.
So what I have is file names with their corresponding extensions. What I need to do is, display the files in the Silverlight application with their corresponding file type icon and file name. The following is the Heirarchical data template I use to display the files in the Silverlight application.
I've created a silverlight application, MainPage.xaml has silverlight controls. The code behind of it will be definately in MainPage.xaml.cs file. When creating a silverlight app, I've selected a default web project wherein this silverlight app will be hosted and run. After all my work in MainPage.xaml.cs file, I want to integrate it in my default.aspx file. As i understand, I need to give reference to xap file in this aspx file. I tried accessing
<asp:Silverlight ID="xx" runat="Server.. />
tag but had no luck. This tag does not come up, Am i missing to add reference to any silverlight dll to my web application. Or is this tag applicable for Silverlight 2.0 and not 3.0 which I'm using:
I am creating an excel spreadsheet server side and downloading to the client via a Silverlight front-end. It is started by the user clicking a button and being presented with a SaveFileDialog. Once the user enters a file name then silverlight starts an asynchronous call to a web service and when finished returns a byte array which is written to wherever the user requested to save it. This all works fine.How do I then automatically open this file on the client's PC?
I have noticed two time-related problems with my website:
 Slowness of loading the graphics for each page in the browser;  Receiving a "Runtime Error" page in the browser when I do take action on the site (e.g. navigate to another page) within approx. 30 seconds.
Are these problems related to limitations of my web host?
