Video: Telerik Silverlight Chart showing live data from SharePoint 2010

Posted on 3/3/2010 @ 1:31 PM in #SharePoint by | Feedback | 589 views

In this video, I demonstrate  -

  • The process of writing, authoring, deploying, configuring, and debugging a Custom WCF service in SharePoint 2010
  • Integrating it with the Telerik Silverlight RAD Chart, that shows live data from the server showing CPU Usage of your web front end – can be enhanced to show whatever else you want.
  • Doing all this in Visual Studio 2010, how you’d put your project together, how do you go about diagnosing it, debugging it – the whole bit. The whole presentation is about 45 mins, and it’s mostly all code, so plenty of juicy stuff here!
  • At the end of this, you have a pretty sexy app running .. just fast forward to the end of the video below, and you’ll see what I’m talking about. :)

You can watch the video here

Sound off but keep it civil:

It is really nice. Mainly hosting the WCF into SharePoint and deploy as one solution.

Hi there, your video just created two projects, one was an empty sharepoint 2010 project for deploying a package to sharepoint and the other is a WCF web service library project. The WCF library project comes with an app.config. We created the new web.config for the ISAPI folder in the Sharepoint project. Which one is the formal configuration file? I am assuming that all configuration changes will then need to be in the web.config and not in the app.config. Is the app.config completely irrelevant using these project deployment scenario?

Thanks very much,

hi,i found your video very interesting.instead of an service like that i made a simple "hello world" service the way you did. when i run my app from visual studio the service works, but when i browse without hitting f5 on vs than it returns me an error which says

Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid. Check InnerException for exception details.


at System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaiseExceptionIfNecessary()


at SayHelloCompletedEventArgs.get_Result()

i watched your video more than 10 times again and again and i did it the same as you did but could not escaped this error. what could went wrong???

thank you again for this nice video-blog

i just wanted to say that i solved the problem i had posted before...


because i am programming on my local computer without active directory, i had to change my security settings for the wcf service from "ntlm" to "windows". after this change it worked like on this video tutorial.


thank you again for this nice tutorial...
