Introduction

 

Today, in this article let's concentrate on another SilverLight application, whereby communicating with a WCF Service to perform some operation.

Question: What is SoundEffect?

 

In simple terms "SilverLight 5 enables to work with .wav files flexibly and we can set the sound properties such as pitch, volume, pan and so on. This sound effect class provides easy way to work with .wav files without creating much overhead as caused with previous versions of SL (file conversion - using parsers)".

Let's get this implemented practically for a better idea of this!!!

 

Step 1: The complete code of the IService1.cs looks like this.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Web;
using System.Text;
namespace Wcf_Sound
{
    // NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the interface name "IService1" in both code and config file
together.
    [ServiceContract]
    public interface IService1
    {
        [OperationContract]
        double add(double a, double b);
        [OperationContract]
        double sub(double a, double b);
        [OperationContract]
        double mul(double a, double b);
        [OperationContract]
        double div(double a, double b);
    }
}


Step 2: The complete code of the Service1.svc.cs looks like this.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Web;
using System.Text; 
namespace Wcf_Sound
{
    // NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the class name "Service1" in code, svc and config file together.
    public class Service1 : IService1
    {
        public double add(double a, double b)
        {
            return a + b;
        }
        public double sub(double a, double b)
        {
            return a - b;
        }
        public double mul(double a, double b)
        {
            return a * b;
        }
        public double div(double a, double b)
        {
            return a / b;
        }
    }
}

 

Step 3: The complete code of the Web.Config looks like this.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration> 
  <system.web>
    <
compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
  </system.web>
  <
system.serviceModel>
    <
behaviors>
      <
serviceBehaviors>
        <
behavior>
          <!--
To avoid disclosing metadata information, set the value below to false and remove the metadata endpoint above before deployment -->
          <
serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
          <!-- To receive exception details in faults for debugging purposes, set the value below to true.  Set to false before deployment to
avoid disclosing exception information
-->
          <
serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
        </behavior>
      </
serviceBehaviors>
    </
behaviors>
    <
serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />
  </system.serviceModel>
  <
system.webServer>
    <
modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"/>
  </system.webServer>
</
configuration>

Step 4: The complete code of the Clientaccesspolicy.xml looks like this (to avoid cross domain problem in SilverLight).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<access-policy>
  <
cross-domain-access>
    <
policy>
      <
allow-from http-request-headers="SOAPAction">
        <domain uri="*"/>
      </allow-from>
      <
grant-to>
        <
resource path="/" include-subpaths="true"/>
      </grant-to>
    </
policy>
  </
cross-domain-access>
</
access-policy>

Step 5: The complete code of the MainPage.xaml looks like this.

        Service1Client objClient = new Service1Client();
        #endregion
    }
}

 

Step 7: Before you rebuild and run the application.

 

Right-click on the .wav file in the Solution.

 

Go to Properties and set the Build Action to Content.
