As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, learning Silverlight is a lot more about relearning some basic assumptions than it is about learning a new language. We’ve already looked at the basic layout managers available and how that impacts putting a screen together. Today we want to look at how we can capture events and access the controls from our CSharp code.

When I was learning DataBinding in both .NET 1.0 and .NET 2.0, I quickly discovered that most of what I learned about DataBinding for ASP.NET was useless as I moved to Windows Forms and what I learned about DataBinding for Windows Forms was useless when it came to developing for ASP.NET.
So it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise that DataBinding in Silverlight has little to nothing to do with DataBinding in ASP.NET or Windows Forms.
While there ARE similarities between the three, you’ll do yourself a huge favor if you remember that you aren’t in Kansas anymore and start from scratch.
