My first SilverLight App

It's been quite long that SilverLight was released. It's an exciting new technology that is going to change the way we create web applications.

I wrote a small and simple application using SilverLight. Here is what it looks like-

I can't see anything :(

If the above statement is true, you probably do not have SilverLight 1.0 installed on your machine. You can download it from here.

I see the smiley. So, what about it?

Well, if you can see it, you should notice that the smiley isn't really smiling. It's sad. Click on it to make it smile. Click it again to make it sad. Go on and on and on. Keep playing with it until you are tired of it :)

As you notice, the app does not do something great. Actually, it was never intended to do something really great. I built it while trying my hands on SilverLight. And it took me roughly about 10 minutes to do this stuff.

If you can do this in less than 10 minutes of effort, just imagine how much potential it has got.

BTW, I don't know if you noticed or not, one of my earlier posts used Windows Live SilverLight Streaming server to stream an audio onto the browser.

Looks nice! Can I get the source-code?

Of course yes! You can download it from the downloads section of my web-site.
