WPF Application and WPF Browser app

Hi Experts,
I am getting into WPF but are struggling with databinding from dataset to WPF designer as follows;
When I drag & drop a datset from datasources onto the grid (WPF application project) all code is  generated correctly, XAML and code behind and data is displayed correctly when you run the app.
When I do the same using WPF browser app, the XAML is created correctly but with no code behind. When you run it, the controls are displayed in the browser but no data.
If I use similar code behind (for the connection string, etc.) as was generated in the WPF windows app (that works) the same result. Controls are displayed but no data
What am I missing?
Please help!
I am using Visual Studio 2010 (VB)

this would be a best place to start with if you are using EF (which i would recommend)

Its probably a permissions or trust issue..There were so many things that you couldnt do because of trust problems.. How are you getting the data from your SQL database to the dataset in the XBAP, is it passed through a web service or WCF service or something like that or are you just trying to directly pull data from SQL in the XBAP?..

To add to that, i would use the dataset so generously in the WPF/Silver light world.. i would rather retrieve the data from SQL as objects(though EF or using some ORM) which is way more easier to handle w.r.t binding to the controls.

Being new to WPF, I will use any method to get data from SQL and to be able to have the data available as a dataset or any other metod that I can link the data fields to text boxes, etc.
Would appreciate some guidelines and/or code snippet.
In your previous post you mentioned sQL as object(through EF or using some ORM) would you please give more detail
regards
