HIGHLIGHT Silverlight 2 in Action is an example-rich tutorial that shows ASP.NET developers how to build rich, interactive applications using Microsoft Silverlight 2. DESCRIPTION Silverlight 2 in Action is a fast-paced, comprehensive tutorial that guides the reader from creating "Hello World" to coding a production-quality, data-driven Silverlight 2 application.
