Using Entity Framework in Silverlight with Visual Basic
If you’re looking for ways to get started with Entity Framework 4.0 in Visual Basic then be sure to check out this month’s issue of CODE Magazine. In it the Entity Framework team has put together a walkthrough that shows how to use EF4 in Silverlight, and best of all the entire article’s in VB!
The walkthrough covers the end-to-end experience: writing the WCF service, using EF’s Self-Tracking Entities to send data over the wire, and writing the Silverlight UI in XAML. Finally, it also shows how new VB10 features (including Statement Lambdas) can be used to make asynchronous UI.
Are there additional areas where you’d like to see VB samples in EF? Please let us know in the comments below!
