Hi All,

So Here's the Main concept,
I am writing a basic database application - the idea is a C# application front end with a SQL database(Express Edition) to hold the data. This will be developed in Visual studio 08 using c#.

Lovely Jubilee so far, So the application works nicely (Theoretically), How would I then get this to also have a web front end ... So It will have desktop access(Via the application installed) and a Web access in-case your away from your computer.

Would it be a case of Just hosting the code in IIS somehow?
Is there a conversion that is avaliable?
Is it a different language?
etc etc...!?!

If someone could explain how to get the desktop application working from a Web front end that would be smashing!

Many Thanks,
50Cal.

That is correct mrjoltcola, but the time to develop the XAML may not be justified seeing as 50Cal only needs ONE application.

I did not recommend he develop a new XAML app. I was just saying if he had already used WPF in his original app, he might reuse it, since he did not specify whether he used WinForms or WPF.
