    In the Call Log demo at:

    You can enter a long string.

    LightSwitch will automatically display ellipses (...) if it cannot display the full string.

    If you widen the screen...

    It will automatically display as much as it can.

    I have a LIghtswitch silverlight Out of Browser application that is hosted in Azure Websites.  Since it is out of browser, is there any advantage of having the "Free" vs "Shared" plan?  The only advantage I can see would be a Custom Domain with the "Shared".  But extra resources would not do anything for the application would it since it is hosted out of browser and install on the users desktop?  Or am I misunderstanding the Out of Browser? Thanks!

    I am trying to setup a simple database application for Lightswitch.  The data base is only four MSSQL tables (Contacts, Addresses, Emails and Phones).  When I add a screen I get three templates (Browse Data, View Details and Add/Edit) rather than the five or more templates shown in all the tutorials I've seen.  Building the solution gives the errors: Error 1 Source file 'C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\Contacts\Contacts\Contacts.Server\GeneratedArtifacts\ContactsDataObjectContext.cs' could not be opened ('Unspecified error ') Contacts.Server Error 2 Could not copy the file "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\Contacts\Contacts\Contacts.Server\obj\Debug\Application.Server.dll" because it was not found. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\LightSwitch\v4.0\Microsoft.LightSwitch.targets 103 10 Contacts What have I done wrong??
