Best way to get my sample solution to Azure
4/14/2014 2:59 PM
I've been working on a sample LS app using the latest VS 2013 updates. Intrinsic database and HTML client. I have an Azure account I just signed up for and am trying to get this in the cloud as easily as possible. At this stage security etc have no role in the app. Could someone point me to a page/blog/how-to on the best way of doing this? I've been reading up and it seems I have to right-click the server and client apps separately and tell them to publish to Azure? Is there a solution-wide way of publishing both or a best-practice for doing each? In VS 2013 I'm being prompted for all kinds of Azure/Windows installers when I try to publish. Not sure which of those I need specifically-- by that I mean I see options for Azure/Node and Azure/PHP publishing in the list of options, which I certainly don't need. And all told the options all add up to 450MB for me to download, so I'd like to keep the footprint as small as possible.
Best way to store Lightswitch images
4/11/2014 6:28 PM
I'm writing a Lightswitch HTML app that allows users to upload and view an image associated with a person. I've split the image out into it's own table and given it a 0.1 - 1 relationship with the Person table with the idea that if I don't include the image in the Person browse screen, my records would load much faster. Am I correct in this assessment or is Lightswitch loading the image anyway because of the relationship I declared with the Person table? (I'm not familiar with the data envelope choice Lightswitch makes.) Also, if it is loading the image anyway, then how would you recommend I ensure screen responsiveness for a Person Browse screen? Thanks. - Mike
Getting started with RIA
4/11/2014 4:09 PM
I'm still baffled by RIA. Never done anything with WCF and running into limitations of having to return data in exact shape as entities. have worked around some of these with SQL views due to time limitations. I have a few dumb questions. I read many of the links about lightswitch and RIA, but don't understand much of the terminology (e.g. Domain services), so I'm lost almost straight away. I'm willing to buy a book or take a course on plural sight or wherever, but want to make sure i choose the right one as there are very few books specific to LS and I don't want to waste time learning the wrong subject. I have a desktop silverlight app that's deployed via a UNC path. What's required to use RIA? I'm assuming it's going to involve having to use IIS and creating a WCF service(?) on the IIS server to consume the http calls. Or have I got completely wrong, is RIA services something that runs in the silverlight app (and still sends call to SQL server --not via
Stay on the same screen after save
4/11/2014 12:49 PM
Hello, I am using LightSwitch HTML client (March 2014 Update). I have an edit screen and I want the user to stay on this screen after the save button is used. A possible solution would be to use the "afterClosed" option when navigate to the edit screen. Is there a more elegant solution that will help me to accomplish this requirement without navigate to the browse screen and then go back to the edit screen? Regards, Martin
Wix Installer for a LightSwitch Application
4/10/2014 2:58 PM
Hi LightSwitch Team, It is possible to build an Wix Installer for a LightSwitch Application after the LightSwitch project was builded with TFS? Can you give me a good link to start the work? I have no experience with WIX. Many thanks.
