How to show in Album view by default

Aug 15, 2010 at 4:41 PM

Hi ,

I am new to .net and silverlight. This project made so easy even for novices like me.

Pictures are showing fine , But I need to improve on two things.

1. Show the gallery in album view, how to do it?

2. Is there a easy way to generate data.xml file rather than create each line for each picture manually.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Reddy

  1. To start the object in album view add the following to the first line in your configuration file. 
    StartInAlbumView="true"
    
  2. To generate the XML data, I recall seeing a utility that would generate the code for this somewhere in the downloads section.  It may have been referenced within one of the PDF instructions - fuzzy memory.

    When writing by hand, I first do everything for one album and then copy/paste the code to create additional ones and just change whatever is necessary.  If your XML file will be very large/complex, I imagine you could create an XL spreadsheet that concatenated text strings together.
