Announcing Native Extensions 1.0 for Microsoft Silverlight

Posted 19 January 2011 - 07:13 PM

Native Extensions 1.0 for Microsoft Silverlight

Quote

Native Extensions 1.0 for Microsoft Silverlight (NESL) is a new toolkit that contains a set of Silverlight libraries that enable Silverlight 4 out-of-browser applications to interact with cool Windows 7 features:

Take advantage of sensors like accelerometers, light sensors, compasses, GPS etc.

Access content from connected portable devices like music players and digital cameras.

Capture and create video from webcams and screen output

Use speech recognition and text to speech capabilities.

Integrate with the Windows 7 taskbar (Jump Lists, Icon Overlays, Taskbar Progress etc.)


This looks to be a great toolkit addition for Silverlight. I like the idea of having access to connected portable devices from an OOB Silverlight app.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
