Silverlight, WCF, and Linq to Sql September 18, 2008

Filed under: Silverlight Tutorials — dotnetdave @ 3:52 am

Whilst putting together the Silverlight datagrid sample from a few posts ago, I came across some odd behaviour with my LINQ entity ‘losing’ its schema definition on the client, resulting in the Grid not displaying the data. I’ll explain my approach by way of diagrams:

It seems as if the proxy classes for my LINQ entities were not being properly recognised on the client because of the nested WCF calls. I’m still unsure as to the exact cause of this issue, I verified that appropriate attributes added to my LINQ entity classes to support WCF were being propagated to the proxies built from them, however the only way I could get the Grid to successfully display data was by removing the additional tier.
