My LightSwitch session at DevTeach Montreal 2011

Earlier this month I did a talk on Visual Studio LightSwitch at the DevTeach conference in Montreal.

Here is the list of features I demonstrated:

  • Designer to create the Db tables
  • Wizards to create the UI (automatic screens layout)
  • Live screen layout customization
  • Built-in insert/edit/delete with validation
  • Built-in sort, pagination and Excel export
  • Custom validation
  • Computed columns
  • Customize a Search screen with a DatePicker as filter parameter
  • Customize the Menu (groups)
  • Using an Extension (Bing Map)
  • Security
    • Users, Roles and Permissions
    • Screens Access control
