Upload from and Download to Isolated Storage

Jul 22, 2012 at 8:58 PM

It would be useful to have Isolated Storage support for dowloading/uploading files to/from it. This would work for Silverlight, Silverlight OOB and desktop .NET apps with mostly the same code I believe.

Also, it wouldn't have the security issues involved with the Silverlight file dialog for the local file system.Searched if anyone has implemented some Isolated Storage FileDialog and found this: https://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=3794&lngWId=10 but one would need to adapt to Silverlight and have to check the source download for the license

Also http://forums.silverlight.net/t/201362.aspx/1 looks useful, shows how to copy files from local file system to isolated storage and vice-versa using the OS filedialog

HSS Interlink is more about uploading and download files to a remover server than a File Explorer (Isolated or otherwise). If you want to save to Isolated Storage you can do that directly with no middle man.

Here is an example of a sample Iso File Explorer from Microsoft's All In Code framework: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/CSSL3IsolatedStorage-109a7c4b

It's in SL3 so you'll have to upgrade/convert but it works quite well.
