This topic provides an overview of the sample projects that installed by the WebUI Studio Installer into your local development machine when you choose to include Silverlight and WPF platform.

The following sections describe the available sample projects in Visual Studio 2010 solution format. The project can be opened using the Visual Studio 2010 or Expression Blend 4 application. For more information about the supported development tools, see Supported Development Environment.

Silverlight Samples

The following sections list the ClientUI sample projects for the Silverlight platform.

Business Application Sample

The business application sample demonstrates many of the key features and controls in ClientUI that are fundamental in building a rich Silverlight business application.

Specifically, the business application sample is focused in the following key areas:

  • Using UXFrame to provide navigation infrastructure for page navigation and deep link.
  • Using UXPage to encapsulate a modular page content.
  • Using navigation controls such as UXNavigationButton and UXHyperlinkButton to navigate between the pages in the application.
  • Using built-in authentication and role-based security features to provide protection to specific pages.
  • Using MVVM pattern for all views that require user interaction logic between the user interface and the data entity/model.
  • Providing registration form and user login functionality that uses WCF RIA Services and ASP.NET Role Manager.

The following illustration shows the business application sample project in Visual Studio 2010.

ClientUI Controls Sample

The ClientUI controls sample includes a variety of line-of-business, scenario-based samples and numerous UI patterns that are built entirely using the frameworks and rich controls available in ClientUI.

The following list describes an overview of the ClientUI controls sample project:

  • Over 120 samples demonstrating the controls, layout controls, panels, frameworks and APIs available in ClientUI.
  • The samples are grouped in multiple projects based on the control's family. For example, the UXFrame sample can be found in Intersoft.ClientUI.Samples.NavigationControls project, while the UXDock sample can be found in Intersoft.ClientUI.Samples.UXDock project.
  • You can launch the integrated sample by viewing the Intersoft.ClientUI.SamplesTestPage.aspx page which is located in the Intersoft.ClientUI.Samples.Web project. You can also run individual sample by viewing the respective test page.
  • Many of the sample projects reference to a shared project that contains asset files such as images, styles, data sources, models and view models. The shared asset files are available in the Intersoft.ClientUI.Samples.Assets project.
  • In addition to the controls and features, many of the samples also demonstrate the best practice and guidelines to use MVVM pattern for efficient data binding, user interaction and logic encapsulation.

The following illustration shows the ClientUI controls sample project in Visual Studio 2010.

 

The ClientUI Controls sample ships with a compelling control explorer allowing you to conveniently browsing the available samples in Coverflow interface. For more information about the control explorer features, see Introduction to ClientUI Control Explorer.

Contacts MVVM Sample

The contacts MVVM sample demonstrates the best practice and guideline to use MVVM pattern in building rich cross-platform application.

Specifically, the contacts sample is focused in the following key areas:

  • Using the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern to consistently addressing numerous challenges in building rich user interface through efficient data binding and user interaction encapsulation which streamlines the communication between the view, the user interaction logic and the data entity or model.
  • Applying the MVVM semantics to the user interface controls such as using Commands, CommandBinding and KeyBinding on tool bar buttons.
  • Using rich UI controls with MVVM pattern. For example, showing a dialog box when user clicks on the Edit button in the toolbar in the MVVM fashion.
  • Using two-way data binding on input controls such as text box, combo box, check box and more.
  • Demonstrating data validation on the input controls with Silverlight's built-in validation engine. The data validation is called from within the view model.

The following illustration shows the Contacts MVVM sample project in Visual Studio 2010.

 

This sample also demonstrates the XAML compatibility with WPF that spans from the navigation frame, commanding, buttons, and the rest of controls used in the sample. The same identical version of the sample is also available for the WPF platform.
