NCode Technologies, Inc. started offering Silverlight enabled website Development. Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.
Cross Platform, Cross Browser is very important to Silverlight and so just like the rest of Silverlight the .NET components will work on Mac and Windows. They will also run in FireFox, IE and Safari. There is no difference between the framework when running on different platforms.
What Is Silverlight?
- It is a cross-browser, cross-platform technology. It runs in all popular Web browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari, and on Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X.
- It provides a consistent experience no matter where it runs.
- It is supported by a very small download that installs in seconds.
- It streams video and audio. It scales video quality to everything from mobile devices to desktop browsers to 720p HDTV video modes.
- It includes compelling graphics that users can manipulate-drag, turn, zoom-directly in the browser.
- It reads data and updates the display, but it doesn’t interrupt the user by refreshing the whole page.
Silverlight-based applications can be created using skills that we already have and tools that we are already familiar with. We can create Web pages that use both HTML and WPF elements with Silverlight. Like HTML, XAML enables us to create UI for Web-based application with declarative syntax, with the difference that XAML provides significantly more powerful elements.
Silverlight-based applications run in the browser. Silverlight makes sure that you can run your applications in all modern browsers, without having to create browser-specific code.
To run a Silverlight-based application, users require a small plug-in in their browser. The plug-in is free. If users do not already have the plug-in, they are automatically prompted to install it. The download and installation take seconds and require no interaction from the user except permission to install.
