A downloadable sample for SignalR commanding & toast notifications in LightSwitch


I got quite some questions about a working SignalR sample.

Here is one :)



Server side the SignalR 1.0.0-RC 2 package is installed. If there is trouble with the dlls, inject the nuget package again:


Client side I’m referencing the 2 signalR relevant Dlls from a ReferenceAssemblies folder. If these references are not ok, just link them again manually.

It’s about:

  • Microsoft.AspNet.SignalR.Client.dll
  • Newtonsoft.Json.dll

I compiled these dlls directly from github.

The toast notifications need the Pixata LightSwitch extension.

Good luck.


Important: No need to use my referenced assemblies. Simply inject in the client side project the SignalR windows Client (it will install the above silverlight dlls)

If you use the downloadable sample, make sure to update also the server nuget package to version 1.0.0 (because this was the release candidate)
