Introduction


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

Question: What is Typographical Text?
 

In simple terms "SilverLight 5 provides enhancements to define different font styles with help of Typography. It provides different Typographical features like ligatures, stylistic sets and many more".

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_Open_Type
{ // 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]

        string typography();
    }

}

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_Open_Type

{

    
// 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 string typography()
           {
                 return "SilverLight 5...!!! Whoomp..";
             }
       }
}

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 the 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:

<UserControl x:Class="Typography_Application.MainPage"
    xmlns
="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x
="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d
="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc
="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
    mc:Ignorable
="d"
    d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400" Loaded
="UserControl_Loaded">

   
<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        
<!--<TextBlock Height="63"
                   HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                   Name="textBlock1"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily="Gabriola"
                   FontSize="34"
                   Width="522"
                   Margin="-63,118,-59,118"
                   Typography.ContextualAlternates="True"
                   Typography.StylisticSet7="True"/>-->

        <!--<TextBlock Height="63"
                   HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                   Name="textBlock1"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily="Gabriola"
                   FontSize="34"
                   Width="522"
                   Margin="-63,118,-59,118"
                   Typography.StylisticSet6="True"/>-->

        <!--<TextBlock Height="63"
                   HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                   Name="textBlock1"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily="Gabriola"
                   FontSize="34"
                   Width="522"
                   Margin="-63,118,-59,118"
                   Typography.Variants="Superscript"/>-->

        <!--<TextBlock Height="63"
                   HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                   Name="textBlock1"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily="Gabriola"
                   FontSize="34"
                   Width="522"
                   Margin="-63,118,-59,118"
                   Typography.Variants="Subscript"/>-->


       
<TextBlock Height="63"
                   HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                   Name="textBlock1"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily
="Gabriola"
                   FontSize
="34"
                   Width="522"
                   Margin
="-63,118,-59,118"
                   Typography.Capitals
="SmallCaps"/>
        <TextBlock Margin="35,28,29,218"  
                   HorizontalAlignment
="Center
                   VerticalAlignment="Center"
                   FontFamily
="Gabriola"
                   FontSize
="34">

        
<Run Typography.Fraction="Slashed" Text="22/12 33/238 " ></Run>
       
</TextBlock>
   
</Grid>
</
UserControl> 

Step 6: The complete code of the MainPage.xaml.cs looks like this:

using System;
using
System.Collections.Generic;
using
System.Linq;
using
System.Net;
using
System.Windows;
using
System.Windows.Controls;
using
System.Windows.Documents;
using
System.Windows.Input;
using
System.Windows.Media;
using
System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using
System.Windows.Shapes;
using
Typography_Application.ServiceReference1;
namespace
Typography_Application
{
    public partial class MainPage : UserControl
    {
        public MainPage()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
        private void UserControl_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            data();
        }
        private void typography_Call(object sender, typographyCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            textBlock1.Text = e.Result;
        }
        public void data()
        {
            objClient.typographyCompleted +=new EventHandler<typographyCompletedEventArgs>(typography_Call);
            objClient.typographyAsync();

        }
        #region
Instance Variables Service1Client objClient = new Service1Client();
        #endregion

    }
}

 Step 7: The output of the Typographical Text @ StylisticSet7 Application looks like this
