Hello!
I use the ASP.NET telerik controls and love them...

However in a new development project at my company, it has been decided to use WPF as both a desktop solution (great! Meant for that!) but also as a "web product". It will be accessible via a public site but also sold for intranet use. It is a HUGE RMS system for the fire industry. Are there any case studies using WPF application run in this way? Over the internet via browser? What are the limitations? I have not been able to find ANY information really on using WPF as a web application.

I know ASP.NET is used for web apps, but in this case, management wants to use WPF. Mainly for the single code base (Desktop/web). However, it does not appear to have been meant for web deployment based on the literature... THoughts?

Thanks
Harold

Hi Harold,

You can use XBAP for web WPF applications similar to our examples.

HI

I am aware of the XBAP approach, but is this meant for an app that will have hundreds of fields and about a dozen or more tabs for one form? THis is a large data-entry application... more then a couple of controls...

Thanks

Hi Harold,

Displaying hundreds of elements in a single form can be painful in other platforms as well however you can always separate these in different forms. Other possible approach is Click Once.

Best wishes,
