    Silverlight is a cross platform, cross browser .NET plug-in that enables designers and developers to build rich media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. This session is targeted to beginners in Sliverlight. Come to this session and learn fundamentals, architecture of Silverlight with real times examples.

2. It’s all about ListView control (ASP.NET 3.5/VS 2008):
    Meet ListView control by coming to this session. You will definitely say thanks to ASP.NET 3.5 for introducing this ListView control. ListView control is a sort of hybrid between a DataGrid and Repeater. It combines the free form templating of Repeater and the editing features of the DataGrid. In this session we will examine basics of ListView and then we will discuss ListView control in detail with real time examples. By keeping real time need of a day to day developer, the examples and explanation will be provided. Come to the session, learn use of ListView control and say thanks to ASP.NET 3.5 for providing this new beautiful life saver control for developers!

Silverlight TextBox control Fun Example...Fun to test the example...

Tue, 10 Jul 2007 02:56:00 GMT

From long time I was playing with Silverlight, as like all others I was also eagerly waiting for Textbox control in next release. Mean time I have found some custom textbox control from Rob Conery Blog. Thanks for him for making it. Ofcourse we could try 'Access the HTML DOM from Managed Code' approch, but I was more keen on having Textbox in XAML only as that tried it. As many people are still don't know what Sliverlight is, I have made a very simple example fun example. Play with the example and have fun. The below example is hosted at If you also want to learn and host, check the site.

The sample questions you can send out to space are:
1. Hello World
2. Do you want to come to Earth?
3. Why do you want to come to earth?
4. Why you want to learn .Net?
5. What transportation you use to come to earth?

Hope you will have fun with this example and if you are begginer please check site. Worth to check....
NOTE: You need to have Silverlight to run this example. If you don't have download it...don't panic..this is what you will use in hurry and download and be one of the first person having it...:)

·  Hosting in different versions of IIS

I thought it's very useful article as bloged it....

Finally now I have Windows LongHorn..Sorry 'VISTA'.. With Small problem of not having .Net 2.0 ISAPIS in IIS

Tue, 23 Aug 2005 05:42:00 GMT

Finally...Finally I have installed Windows Vista Beta 1. I have not played much...It's 1:41am...Planning to go to bed.

Though one small problem I noticed. After installing VISTA, when I looked into IIS, in Web Service Extensitions I could not able to find .NET 2.0 ISAPI entry... I guess you know the solutions...Just use ASPNET_REGIIS to register it (Or use Add New WebService extensition option in IIS)....then you are good to go on using ASP.NET 2.0 in Windows LongHron..Sory VISTA :)

Can't wait much time to play with WinFx, Avalon and Indigo. If you are ahead of me, please..please.. help me to get there...I mean if you think any important things I have to know before exploring...please help me...

We (Me and My wife) had instantiated an Object type human (HAPPY NEW's)

Mon, 11 Jul 2005 01:39:00 GMT

I am very happy to share this information; we (Me and My wife) had instantiated an Object type human on Jul 5th 2005 7:41 pm.


We named that objects as SREEVAMSEE. This object is occupied 21inches of  space (on earth) when it's been instantiated, hoping it occupies more space (On Earth) as time goes.


This object, has inherited many of our (Me, my wife and other family members) properties and methods, also as Polymorphism is part of OOP, he also overridden some of the functions and made them as his own properties.


SREEVAMSEE.GetObjectType resulted as Baby boy!


Though it's a well behaving object, GC is not still implemented; we are talking care of that part now and hoping in future this object will have its own well behaved GC :)


Finally we are planning to do our best to make/shape this object as a better human and we are also hoping this object will be the best next generation human object.


Even though we instantiated this object, this object is running under it's own thread, and when we traced the root of this thread, it's been running under CREATOR (GOD) process by using God's beautiful imagination software. Hoping Creator bless SREEVAMSEE object and off course all of us!


Finally I salute, wonder, surprise and admire Creator's wonderful time/space life concept. Also I am very happy to be a part of his imagination/desire and will pray/thank him for giving me (and also to us) a chance to become part of his creation.
