Silverlight is a development platform to develop rich internet applications that are cross-browser and cross-platform compatible. Silverlight applications are executed through a browser plug-in that means it runs inside the Internet Explorer on the client machines. By using Silverlight and SharePoint as the data source you can develop visually appealing clients for your users.
In this recipe, we will create a Silverlight application using the Silverlight Object Model. The application like the previous recipes, will display list items from the contacts list.
The previous recipes should be completed successfully. Additionally, create a new document library on your site using SharePoint UI and name it XAPFiles.
