Silverlight & Codeplex websites?

Oct 19, 2009 at 1:27 AM

Hi all,

This is not a technical question, so my apologies if this is the wrong place to place it, but I need to know the difference between http://compositewpf.codeplex.com and http://www.codeplex.com/Silverlight

Bar the obvious reason that this site is for composite WPF, is it also for Silverlight? Also has anyone used the codeplex.com/silverlight? There doesn't seem to be a discussion tab so that I can discuss my issues in silverlight? Is this the case for everyone or is just me and do I need to do something to enable the discussion tab or contact someone? I couldn't find any options, so here I am.

I hope someone can clarify this for me.

Thanks.

Hi Thierry,

The http://compositewpf.codeplex.com is the codeplex site for the Composite Application Guidance for WPF & Silvelight, which is a guidance from p&p that helps develop Composite applications in WPF & SL. The latest release of the guidance is Prism-v2 which you can download from here. This forum is meant for questions related to this guidance.

On the other hand, the http://www.codeplex.com/Silverlight site is the codeplex site for the Silverlight Toolkit. You can read about what it is in the home page. Although that site does not have a discussion forum, you can ask any question you might have about it in the following forum: Silverlight Controls and Silverlight Toolkit.

Please let me know if this helps.

Hi Damian,

Thanks for the reply and the clarification. I never spotted the Forums tab in Silverlight!!!! I was recently at a silverlight jumpstart provided by MS and I'd swear that the lecturer there was on codeplex.com/silverlight and that she had a discussion tab. Maybe it is because she's working from Microsoft.

I'll get in touch with her and find out if this was the case but I know that when we were in class, I logged on to codeplex and and told her that I did not have the tab and she could not understand why, so maybe as I said, it is only an option offered to MS employees?? Maybe she was on compositewpf.codeplex.com but I'm nearly 100% sure this was not the case.

No worries, I have the forums for now and I'll revert back once I hear from her.

Thanks.

T.
