"Hello World" Silverlight application

In this chapter, you will learn how to create your first Silverlight application

Open Visual Studio and select the menu "File" > "New" > "Project"
Select the Project Type as "Silverlight" under your favorite language and choose the template "Silverlight Application". I have selected Visual C# as the tutorials here.

I have named my project as "MySilverlightApp" and have selected the option "Create directory for solution" so that all my project files are organized within a folder structure.

We need a web page to host the Silverlight components that we develop. Visual Studio makes this job easier in the next step by prompting you to automatically create a website. Choose the options as shown in the attachment.

You are ready to rock ! Just press OK and Visual Studio will create 2 projects and a bunch of files for you. We will analyze some of the files created by Visual Studio in the next chapter.
