    Great book, I really enjoyed it and has helped me get started in Silverlight.

    Just one thing, the source code for chapter 13 seems incorrect/incomplete as all the zips (part 1 to 8) are exactly the same size and the web project is missing from all of them.

    Is there any chance you can send the the corrected zip for chapter 13?

    Regards,
    Martin.

  2. Hi,
    I am reading your book “Silverlight 4 for dummies”. I have a few question regarding your book. In chapter 12 SilverlightForDummiesRIA samples, I don’t get Fig 12-2, instead VS2010 create a database ASPNETDB.NET in App_Data folder for me. How can I get this to work ? Also, I have problem deployiing the application to the web server. When I log in to the application, I will have an error when logging in. “There was a failure using the default ‘MembershipProvider’…” I have published other asp.net to the web server and without any problem. Can you tell me what do I need to setup in the server or web.config please. Thanks in advance.

    Is there any chance you can send the the corrected zip for chapter 13?

  4. I am having a problem with the HttpWebRequest example in Chapter 10. Help please.

    The line

    ContentText.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke( () =>(ContentText.Text=responseValue;));

    raises some errors about the syntax.

  5. Thanks, but no reply yet from your coauthor. I was able to work through most of the examples. There is some problem with the authorization attribute (raises an error). Also the dataform does not allow adding/saving/deleting — any direction would be appreciated.
