I have a client/server Silverlight application that uses 3.6.2 and i'm trying to upgrade to a more recent version without going in too much breaking changes (UI and server side).

I understand a lot has been done since that version, so i tried version 3.7.1 but the first thing i noticed (and its a breaking change) was that ValidatedDataGridTextColumn was not available anymore for my datagrids.

I did search the forum site for more than 2 hours and couldn't find something about this missing function, can someone advise how to proceed? what breaking changes concepts i need to do? I bought the 2008 book but it doesnt include SL.

All of what was the Csla.Silverlight namespace is now the Csla.Xaml namespace, and it is in the separate Csla.Xaml.dll assembly.

btw, the best information about building a Silverlight application with 3.7 is the CSLA .NET for Silverlight video series on http://store.lhotka.net.

Hi Rocky,

The ValidatedDataGridTextColumn problem was related to a mis-referenced assembly of windows.control.data (not the correct SL version, my mistake)

Thanks for your answer, indeed we know we are not updated with the 3.8+ CSLA versions that take advantage of the SL 3-4 capabilities; I will look to the 3.6 - 4.0 migration implications, what areas will need to be changed since we dont use ViewModel. Thanks for the video suggestion, will be a must in the near future for us.

Greetings to you and all the CSLA community :)
