I want to create a working proto-type of a simple screen that can be used for data entry into a single SQL Server table, view data in a grid and edit the same data. I want to use XAML file and a back end data object.  I do not know how to create the back end data component and I do not know how to bind XAML text fields and list boxes to the data component.   I am looking for an end to end solution that I can load up and then study so that I can understand how data binding works and be able to duplicate the programming techniques used.  Is there a really good tutorial with complete sample code somewhere?  Or, other learning tool to ramp up my knowledge to properly utilize XAML, Expressions, data binding for building business applications?  My work is mostly government, banks, small to medium entreprenuerial clients.

On the Silverlight web site, there is a tutorial (a lot of them actually), but one in specific where they do some databinding for samle data.

http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2008/02/28/first-look-at-using-expression-blend-with-silverlight-2.aspx

The tutorial itself is pretty good size and all on one page, but if you search for "Implementing Fake Data for Design-time Databinding" on the page, you will find it pretty easily.

Bascially, all that is happening is creating some objects with hard coded information.
