Silverlight and Sharepoint 2010 a step forward: how to build a small Silverlight 4 utility to upload files in a List or Library of Sharepoint

I’ve been reading a lot of resources related to Silverlight, especially as it relates to SharePoint 2010 development. One of the things that impresses me most about the technology is the ability to deliver very rich user interfaces. Not only that, it allows some advanced interactions that are simply not possible without some heavy coding, solutions like this:

Silverlight and Sharepoint 2010 a step forward: how to build a small Silverlight 4 utility to upload files in a List or Library of Sharepoint.

This solution shows how to upload a file to a document library simply by selecting the files from your file system and then dragging them over the Silverlight application where they are processed and placed into SharePoint. I’m imagining all types of scenarios where this would be useful — especially for business users that deal with a large volume of files every day.

I have been a developer of web based solutions since early 2001 delivering solutions to a wide array of organizations using ASP, ASP.NET and SharePoint. I was introduced to SharePoint in 2003 when the consulting firm I worked for at the time introduced it into the workplace. I began working with MOSS 2007 as soon as Microsoft released the RTM version in November 2006. The platform was implemented at the organization I worked for in 2007 and went live in March of that year. I was tasked with the administration and ongoing development of the platform. I currently work as a SharePoint Architect with Artis Consulting, developing solutions for a wide variety of business problems. The goal of this blog is to share my discoveries developing solutions with SharePoint. I welcome your comments and feedback to any post -- and I welcome suggestions for future topics.
