March 16, 2011


Yesterday I’ve delivered my lecture titled “3-Screens Development using WPF, SL and WP7” in the SDP 2011 conference.

In this lecture I’ve presented the application FlashCards.Show which has 3 clients in WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone 7.


I showed how to share the code base between the different clients using:



  • MVVM

  • Adding files as links

  • Preprocessor symbols

  • OOP

  • Portable Library tools

Then I showed a few features that exist in WPF and don’t exist in Silverlight, and how one can overcome this gap.


Specifically I showed how to:



  • Implement Commands in Silverlight 3

  • Implement ClipToBounds property

  • Implement a DataTemplateSelector replacement

I want to thank all the people who came to my lecture today.
I really enjoyed it and I hope you too.


You can download the PowerPoint presentation and the demos here.


In addition you can find more references on porting from WPF to Silverlight in the following posts:

I will post again when my lecture will be available to view on Sela College Channel.


That’s it for now,
Arik Poznanski.
