We have a software component framework packaged in a DLL. With Silverlight's use of isolated storage, or just straight loading from a server (would seem slow in a browser experience - hence the isolated storage idea), would we be able to access our custom DLL on the client side for business calculations for the client without postbacks?

This seems to be to me what "Rich Internet Application" would be all about. But I haven't seen much on this concept.

#1 Can Silverlight accomplish this?
#2 Do you cover anything like this in your Book/Forum/In your private e-mail?

Re: Will Silverlight carry our water?
Silverlight can accomplish this. In fact, this book does cover this scenario in chapter 11. it even discusses how to monitor the progress of the entire download.

Re: Will Silverlight carry our water?
Ok, I bought the book and have looked in chapter 11 smilie

Here's my deal. I checked e.Cancelled and e.Error and that's not the problem it would seem.

I load the AssemblyPart and then get the Assembly. But I can't access my class out of there. How can I "see" what's in that assembly?

I know this is rapidly heading outside the scope of the book - so if you don't want to stray that far off topic - I understand.

P.S. Um, nevermind - I figured it out and your code in chapter 11 helped me do it! So my investment has already paid for itself already. Thanks man!
