    In my recent article, "Is Visual Studio LightSwitch the New Access?", I looked at the suitability of LightSwitch as a replacement tool for departmental applications developed in Microsoft Access. LightSwitch is being positioned as a tool for the power user to develop Microsoft .NET Framework applications without having to face the substantial learning curve of the full .NET technology stack. I described each of the six extension types available to add the functionality to LightSwitch that an experienced .NET developer might want to use to make development in LightSwitch easier, or that a designer may want to use to build a visually appealing application.

    Latest Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Forum Threads That Have Answers

    Hi all, I recently discovered that after updating my LS app in Azure that my Server project is missing two database tables. When I check the LSML files in the project folder they are still there, but they are not showing in VS2015. I used SQL Studio 2014 and confirmed that the tables still exist (with content) on the production install in Azure. I figured I could remediate the issue by connecting to the Azure DB using the "Replace Data from Server" option, however no matter what credentials I apply I receive "an error has occurred" (Error user unauthorized - The remote server returned 401. I have tried: My Admin Windows Azure account (AAD);The Azure Deployment Credentials; andApplication Admin credentials. As the error details mention access to SCM in the URL I figure my Azure admin credentials should be sufficient but they all return the same error. What am I missing here? Of courser if you have suggestions how to return the tables to VS without this

    Hi all, I've been looking at the code Yann updated Improved Modal Window Helper Class (based on Sheel's Article "Creating a Custom Add Or Edit Dialog") Now, as I'm very much new to C# I'm trying to work out how to get this working in my C# SL client. I've added the Helper code into the "Application Code" for the SL client as described in the original article from Sheel. I have a Search Products screen where I have defined a Modal Window (AddProdDialog) but then I grind to a halt. I've found some similar posts but they have been in VB and trying to convert the code was not successful. Any assistance welcome :) Cheers, Adam

    I've been fussing with this for the better part of two years. I've read through every single tutorial. I'm dying for someone to help me actually understand what piece I'm just missing in all of this. I subscribe to a web service for our drivers and their GPS location information. It has a methods GetAllDrivers and GetDriverByID. I need for this service to be called, and update all information for all my drivers to an entity I can use at my will in different screens. I do not want to call the web service for individual drivers each time I load a screen. I want to update all data once or twice a day. As I understand the answer to this is a RIA Service correct? If so I am just not having any luck getting a RIA service to work. I know I could just pay someone to do this, but I'm a little stubborn as I really want to learn how to do this. Would anybody be willing to have a back and forth with me without pointing me to some tutorial that eventually overlooks important pieces I need to

VS started the project but I have to right click on IIS Express icon and then open list of sites and then open link from there to popup IE and open LS home screen. That is not so big problem, but the problem is to debug. Breakpoint won't hit this way. Anyone can help? Thanks!

    SL Client - Blank Screen
    8/9/2016 10:38 PM
    Hi guys, Apologies for the simple question. I have searched and after numerous hits, didn't find a thread that matched. I have a 3-tier LS application deployed to Azure. The SL client is configured for out of browser, and works on one machine, but on two others it's a blank (white) window that doesn't proceed to the logon screen (Forms Auth). If I switch back to a browser based SL application it works fine. Any suggestions on how I track this down? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Adam
