Morning all,

Can anyone advise me if it's possible to enter data into a SharePoint list via a Silverlight Application? if so, are there any basic steps that someone making thier steps into SharePoint Development could follow?

Many thanks, Steven

There shouldnt be any problem using CSOM (.NET client API reference for SharePoint 2013)

Example code:

// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://SiteUrl"); 

// Assume that the web has a list named "Announcements". 
List announcementsList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Announcements"); 

// We are just creating a regular list item, so we don't need to 
// set any properties. If we wanted to create a new folder, for 
// example, we would have to set properties such as 
// UnderlyingObjectType to FileSystemObjectType.Folder. 
ListItemCreationInformation itemCreateInfo = new ListItemCreationInformation(); 
ListItem newItem = announcementsList.Items.Add(itemCreateInfo); 
newItem["Title"] = "My New Item!"; 
newItem["Body"] = "Hello World!";
