Release Notes

What's new in the 1.1.0 release?

This is still one of the first releases. It is also my first relase and contribution to the public. So there is probably much to learn in the process.

Controls

SearchBox
The SearchBox is a control in which you can do a search (like asynchronous service calls), and the control waits to display the result, created for searches in huge sources. You don't have to pre-load lots of values in the client. The control has a SearchText property which contains the text to search from. When pressing <enter> or waiting the threshold time (default 2 seconds), an event and a command (use which you like) will fire. The actual search is handled by you, and the result is put to the ItemsSource so it can be viewe in the control.
The Searchbox control also has a SelectedItem which holds the selected item.

Tester application

A tester application is also available for testing the available controls. It includes a Web project that holds the Silverlight application with the default view.

.NET Framework notes:

Requires Silverlight 5 and .NET Framework 4.5 installed.
