GoWPF and GoSilverlight in terms of capability


Our application has both WPF and Silverlight client, I want to know whether the API of GoWPF and GoSilverlight is similar enough for us to reuse a major portion of the UI code. Thanks.

Yes. Since you have both kits installed, you can diff the sources for the demo app.

You’ll find that the C# code files for both are identical, with minimal #if.

The XAML files are slightly different, which is unavoidable. However, if you have installed the 1.3 betas, you can see that the differences truly are limited to inherent differences between Silverlight and WPF. The major reason for the reduction in differences (compared to 1.2) is that the samples were upgraded to require Silverlight 4, which has a much improved XAML parser.
