Xceed is embracing Microsoft's latest technology with the release of Xceed Upload for Silverlight! The product is available now for purchase or as a fully functional 45-day trial on Xceed’s website.
Xceed Upload for Silverlight lets you quickly and easily add upload capabilities to any Silverlight 2 Beta 1 application. All of this new product's upload operations are asynchronous. As a result, the Web page hosting your application remains perfectly responsive and usable for the entire transfer.
Xceed Upload for Silverlight gives applications the ability to upload multiple files in a single transaction, and also solves a problem inherent in the current version of Microsoft’s Silverlight technology by gathering field contents in a Silverlight form. The data is then formatted into a standard request that any modern Web server can understand for subsequent processing.
Of course, because it’s based on Microsoft’s Silverlight technology, Xceed Upload for Silverlight allows you to seamlessly integrate the product’s upload capabilities into the beautiful and compelling end-user experience that Silverlight is all about, one that will run in multiple browser types on multiple OS types.
The product provides a rich set of events that lets your application monitor and control every step of an upload operation, as well as options for GZip and Deflate compression, customizing the HTTP request it will send, and Base64 encoding to support Web browsers that do not upload non-ASCII data.
Also included is Xceed Http Server Tools for ASP.NET, which gives you classes that make handling compressed/encoded files as easy as working with regular files, decompressing/decoding them automatically. Working with uploaded strings is similarly simplified. But if you choose not to use compression/encoding in your Silverlight application, the component then provides 100% client-side execution.
The product supports Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 (except IA-64), and runs in Internet Explorer 7 and 6, Firefox 2 and 1.5, and Safari (Mac OS 10.4.8+ only). Note: Some OS/browser combinations are not supported by Silverlight.
