Silverlight Example: Creating a dynamic site page banner using SharePoint and Silverlight
How to create a dynamic banner for SharePoint 2007/2010 site pages to surface images stored within SharePoint while also making it easy for site authors to upload their own images to be displayed in the banner rotation.
- Develop a Silverlight application to dynamically display images stored in any standard SharePoint 2007/2010 picture library.

- Easy for users to add new images to the banner.

Use SharePoint and Silverlight to display a summary of SharePoint blog posts on any site page
We have been investigating ways on our intranet at Allyis to surface information via a more automatic and less manual process through various features and also to Implement multiple ways for discovering data/information across the site. One area in particular we have been looking for improvement has been to increase the discoverability of our leadership blogs and encourage employees throughout our organization to blog as as way to increase collaboration and information sharing.
As a way to address these efforts we recently developed and deployed a suite of web-parts (one of which we call the BlogRollUp web-part) which displays details on the most recent post made to any of our SharePoint blogs. The web-part can be added to any site page, configured to point to a specific blog, and uploaded into the web-part gallery for others to use as well.
SharePoint Generic Wrapper for Silverlight with initParams
Here is a freebie…just finished a generic SharePoint web-part to host Silverlight apps inside SharePoint.
There are other out there for sure but I had a need for a generic one that I could specify any number of initParams from the web-part properties in addition to ones I developed that contained separate wp properties for each name/value pair.
Using just a single wp property for the initParams allows you handle any number of parameters from any of your Silverlight apps using the same web-part-just set both the XAP source location and InitParams for the appropriate Silverlight application. nbd but it is easier to deploy just a xap file for every new Silverlight application than having to prop a new web part every time:)
Silverlight FilmStrip Image/Video player for SharePoint lists/libraries.
What does it do?
Displays thumbnail and full size images and plays video
Do you see the thumbnail that includes the waterfall? (Click thumbnail and select play button to view example of streaming video)
Where does it get the data for the images and videos to display/play inline?
The data to populate the intranet version is pulled from SharePoint using the URL protocol.
(no web services required provided you are hosting this inside SharePoint) I will post the web service example soon as well.
For the demo on this site I uploaded as an application to the Silverlight Streaming Service.
The SharePoint list for managing what items are displayed in the filmstrip I created on my
Office Live site but published a public list view and use the RSS feed to load the Filmstrip
since this version is all in the cloud:)
