Re: Where can I download the sourcecode?
Hi Henrik,

Currently the source code associated with the book is not available. The book is going to be finalized with the Silverlight 2 release candidate. At that point, the source code for the book will be organized in an easily downloadable manner, which will be able to be retrieved from the official site listed a number of times in the book.

Thank you for your patience. Theres more content to come. I hope you have enjoyed the book thus far.

You really need to post the source code; if the chapter is written, then you should have source code.

Re: Where can I download the sourcecode?
I would think that it's just as easy to upgrade the source as it is to upgrade the text of the chapters. I could be wrong though. Very, very wrong...

Re: Where can I download the sourcecode?
I would actually agree with you. I would have thought the same thing. However, I learned during the code conversion from Silverlight 1.1 to 2 that it took me approximately 2 hours per chapter. Because of this, I felt that it would be more beneficial to the community to spend time adding value to the book itself.

Once the release candidate is released, the book will be finalized on that content. Creating projects for each of the snippets is a great way to ensure that the content is correct. These projects will then be uploaded for download.

I apologize for the inconveinance. However, it is just a really time-consuming process.

Re: Where can I download the sourcecode?
Hi Cody,

Our goal for this book is that it will be consistent with the Silverlight 2 release candidate. Because of this, we will not provide a release candidate of the book until after Silverlight 2 reaches release candidate status. I can say that I have been in regular communication with a number of managers on the Silverlight 2 team. Because of this, I can say that we should be able to provide a release candidate of the book within three days of the availability of the Silverlight 2 release candidate. However, I cannot tell you when that is yet because it is not my place to announce when the Silverlight 2 RC will be available.

I hope this helps,
Chad
