I need to develop some custom tools on map..such as zoom in, zoom out, filters and many more.
I need to develop this in silverlight .
I don't know where to start from.
How to proceed?
Currently I have VS 2010
Have a look at the API page:
It will give you a good start (Guide tab), including code samples (Samples tab).
You can integrate this well with ASP.NET (I use the framework and embed js maps on our pages). Silverlight is dead - browsers are even preventing the plug-in from loading, and, wont even allow workarounds in the near future (September, 2015, for Chrome).
Thanks Chris Smith for response!!!
The problem is that there is material on silverlight anywhere and there is very little that I need help to advance a project to an application ...
I need to add a toolbar with utilities like zoom, Identify, select, etc etc
Why not take a look at their new Web AppBuilder? Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | ArcGIS
Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!
Have a look at this:
Also, once you read through this, have a look at:
The ArcGIS JS API is supported by Dojo, so you should have an idea about it, but I threw jQuery in there as well since you should have an idea about this library, too.
And keep jsfiddle in mind, for prototyping:
Honestly, Silverlight should still be supported by Microsoft (security-wise), until 2021, I believe, but I wouldn't expect Esri to support it, and I would venture to say that before too long, IE will be the only way to run Silverlight.
There are many development environments out there...and probably many discussions about them. Personally, I use Brackets - A modern, open source code editor that understands web design. . It's free and pretty straight forward to use.
edit: NotePad++ plus works too
