The Silverlight extension is deprecated and no new development will be actioned. All new features and functionality for the support of Silverlight are now handled instead by the .NET XAML extension. Please see the section of documentation entitled Existing extensions for WPF and Silverlight for more information about the .NET XAML extension and the impacts of moving to it.

Summary: This document provides basic information about the beta release of the extension providing Silverlight support for C# and VB.NET

Description

This extension provides support for Silverlight. The calculation of Automated Function Points for your .NET analyses will be supplemented through the creation of new objects and links specific to the Silverlight framework that will link back to objects/links produced by the base .NET analyzer.

In what situation should you install this extension?

If your .NET application contains Silverlight source code and you want to view these object types and their links, then you should install this extension.
