One of the frustrating aspects of working with CSS (one of many, actually) is the amount of duplication in a .css file. .less help to keep your CSS files DRY using 4 constructs:
- Nested Rules
An HTTP handler is configured to respond to requests for the .less files.
<add type="dotless.Core.LessCssHttpHandler, dotless.Core" validate="false" path="*.LESS" verb="*"/>
When a request arrives for a .less file it is the handler’s job to parse the .less file and transform it into standard CSS rule sets.
Online docs for Silverlight 3 here
Download the Nov. version of MSDN offline docs for Silverlight 3 here. The CHM is nice if you’re offline plus it’s faster than the online content, has an index, and only contains Silverlight content.
If you open the CHM and cannot view content, do the following to resolve the issue:
- Right-click the CHM file, and then click “Properties”.
- Click “Unblock”.
- Double-click the .chm file to open the file.
