Microsoft LightSwitch Content Requests

What would you like me to write about? Add your feedback and vote on your favourites.

Lets be realistic. I am not writing a book here, just trying to help others learn some new things. If you have an idea for a topic that you would like me to write about, then let me know what specifically you are trying to achieve.

Please be as descriptive and specific as possible. A suggestion such as “Create A CRM in LightSwitch” is way to vague, and not something I can whip up in a single article. The more granular the request, the easier it will be for me to investigate and document an example solution.

Suggested Topics for LightSwitch Articles

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Reporting

    I'd like to know the simplest way to do reporting in LightSwitch including exporting to PDF and displaying interactive charts all with the HTML client.

            • Deal with real-life HTMLClient issues

              Why simulation, emulation software doesn't actually simulate or emulate the real LightSwitch deployed app experience on an actual smartphone (portrait) or tablet (landscape). A discussion around the issues would be super-helpful IMO. e.g. why does a LightSwitch app run on Droid/Win devices but fails in a default browser hosted in iOS (I'm looking at you Safari)? Are there practical considerations/limitations that we need to know about when we start our developments Paul?

              • Changing the Theme of a HTML Client Application

                I would like to see an article that explains how to change the default theme used for an HTML client application. I know that JQuery Mobile Theme Roller can be used, just not sure how.
