Web Application Toolkits help ASP.NET web developers quickly complete common tasks. Each Web Application Toolkit download contains reusable assets - e.g. controls, class libraries, endpoints etc. and a sample application that shows how to use them. Earlier this year we launched 7 Web App Toolkits; IE8 Extensibility, Bing Search, REST Services, Mobile Web Applications, Template-driven Email, Social Web Apps, FAQs. “Over past couple of months we’ve been busy in lab creating three new Web Application Toolkits: a. Calendars 1.0 b. Bing Maps 1.0 c. Freemium Apps 1.0, ” Sarah Theiss revealed. The toolkit provides sample ASP .NET code for common scenarios such as pushpins on the Bing Maps Silverlight Control and creating a store locator. WAT provides reusable assets that tie together location based data from SQL Server 2008 to a Silverlight Web application by using the new rich Silverlight Bing Maps control, combining the power of Silverlight and Bing Maps. In the Toolkit you’ll find a set of reusable custom controls built in Silverlight, which integrated with Bing Maps Silverlight Control, make a perfect fit for some of the most common location-aware scenarios. With this Toolkit, you’ll also find a sample Silverlight application showing how to use those controls when implementing a “store locator” scenario on a Web site.
