3. Simple Applications > Data Entry

Data Entry

Creating user screens with Visual Studio LightSwitch is about as easy as it gets. For this example, we’re going to create a simple data entry application attached to the SharePoint Tasks list. This will allow us to quickly enter, display, and edit information about all existing tasks.

The first thing we have to do is create a new solution and connect to the Task list using the same process shown at the beginning of this chapter. When that’s complete, you should have a screen that looks something like Figure 3-14. Visual Studio LightSwitch will bring over the types for each element from SharePoint, but you can change how they are presented should you so choose. For this application, we’ll change the Start Date and Due Date fields to a type of date rather than date-time. This is more appropriate for entry and will simplify the screen as well.
