Which tools are required to develop Silverlight applications?
Silverlight applications can be developed in a number of ways:
1. Use notepad to write the XAML code. After this, use the Silverlight SDK to compile the Silverlight application.
2. Microsoft Expression Studio - This tool is recommended for web developers who design rich graphic applications. It has got a lot of in built features for designing the UI such as color picker, selecting the fonts, etc. It is suggested not to use Microsoft Expression Studio in case the requirement is extremely programming intensive that requires usage of C# and VB.NET.
3. Microsoft Visual Studio - This is the most popular development environment by Microsoft. Prefer version 2010 or above. This can be used to develop Silverlight applications that require a lot of .NET programming. The Silverlight Development Tools can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft website, in case these tools are not configured in Visual Studio.
