    Silverlight 2 How To

    As the cover shows, this is a Problem-Solution approach to Silverlight 2. for those wanting to find out how to do a certain type of function, this text provides a good place to start on how to accomplish it.
    The statements on problems are clear, solutions straight forward. Included in the first chapter is an inclusive text on how to setup your development environment, which during the changing versions and new releases is invaluable to assist in using the code in solutions. This book is worth the effort, the detail is excellent. Glad to have it in my library.
