Silverlight 5 & CM

Dec 7, 2010 at 4:30 PM

I'll probably post this 2 hours before the blog post arrives but just wondering how much impact the listed feature set of SL5 will have on CM.  I've only looked quickly at the dozen blog posts so far but it sounds like some of the DataTemplate limitations might be addressed?

It probably won't have any effect on CM actually. Regarding DataTemplates, they are just adding implicit templates. That doesn't really help applying conventions automatically to templates or anything like that though. It does help with simple view/view-model scenarios where you may not want to use CM's ViewLocator because the views are so simple, you'd rather not extract a UserControl. So you can use an implicit template along with the Model.Bind property in those cases.
