Tutorial: Data From a SQL DB via WCF (using LINQ)

My 4th tutorial Displaying SQL Database Data in a DataGrid using LINQ and WCF is now available, as is the source code and a version of the tutorial in PDF

For the moment, I recommend the PDF version as the images are clearer. We're fixing up the HTML versions of all the tutorials even as I write this.


This tutorial walks through

  • Creating a LINQ query against your SQL Server database
  • Creating a WCF service to provide access to the results of your LINQ query
  • Binding Silverlight 2 controls against the WCF service

We will, over time have a way to provide direct feedback for each tutorial, but for now, please do send email or use the forums to ask questions about anything you read in the tutorials.

Thanks again,
