How to: Add or Remove a RIA Services Link

WCF RIA Services

[WCF RIA Services Version 1 Service Pack 2 is compatible with either .NET framework 4 or .NET Framework 4.5, and with either Silverlight 4 or Silverlight 5.]

This topic describes how to add or remove a WCF RIA Services link between a new Silverlight client application and an existing ASP.NET project.

A RIA Services solution basically consists of client and a server projects that are linked by such a RIA Services link, so adding and removing them is a critical task.

This topic assumes that you have completed the Walkthrough: Creating a RIA Services Solution, Walkthrough: Using the Silverlight Business Application Template, and Walkthrough: Creating a RIA Services Class Library topics, or have equivalent knowledge and an existing RIA Services solution available.

When you create a new Silverlight Business Application project, you can create a new WCF RIA Services Class Library project, or you can select the Enable WCF RIA Services check box in the New Silverlight Application dialog box, and a RIA Services link between the client project and the server project is created automatically.

To add a RIA Services link to an existing solution

  1. Open an existing RIA Services solution.

  2. In Solution Explorer, right-click the Silverlight client project and select Properties.

    The Silverlight tab of the project designer appears.

  3. In the WCF RIA Services link drop-down list, select the server project that you want to use for the middle tier with this client project.
