Hi,
I have a silverlight application that has to call services (WCF). Now I don't want to fill up my code-behind with stuff like this, but i want to centralize all my service calls in another class.
I know how to call a method in that other class that does the async call of the webservice. The webservice call completed event is also put in that class. But now I don't know how to get that info (result of the service call) back in my code behind file.
Can somebody show me an example ?

make a service layer which consist of proxies of the WCF services.

then use them in your code behind.

i mean that is a central place where all the service related configuration will sit. It is parallel to your BAL.

this will be a new project which will handle all the service related activities.

I understand what you explain, but there is still one more thing i don't know how to do it.
When i call the other project who does the service stuff, how do i know when the service is completed.
Now i do the service calls in my code behind and i can handle the result immediately in the UI.
ex of how i do it now:
private void GetStatus()
{
            Max200Client proxi = new Max200Client();
             // Attach an event handler to the completed event
             proxi.GetStatusCompleted += new EventHandler<GetStatusCompletedEventArgs>(proxi_GetStatusCompleted);
                 // Start the web service call
                proxi.GetStatusAsync(statusLijstUniversal, statusLijstAudio, statusLijstTemp);
}

void proxi_GetStatusCompleted(object sender, GetStatusCompletedEventArgs e)
{
       // in here i can handle the result and fill in the UI.
}

But how do i know when the GetStatusCompleted event is done when i put this stuff in another project ? My webpage has to continue working, but when the Status is arrived sereral things has to update.
Hope you understand my issue here.

because event should be always handled through controller and notified to view.
