Silverlight HTML Bridge with jQuery and ASP.NET MVC 3


This meeting will focus on the Silverlight-HTML Bridge (JavaScript). We'll look at leveraging Silverlight user controls in an MVC 3 web application with jQuery. We'll see how to communicate between Silverlight and the browser in several different ways. The following list contains just a few reasons why we would want to use this often overlooked technology.

  • Use Existing Rich Silverlight Controls
  • Share HTML and Silverlight Data using jQuery Web Service Calls
  • Continue to Develop Rich Web Applications in Compiled C#
  • Extend Silverlight using HTML Popup Windows
  • Incrementally Move to HTML 5 and CSS3
