Web Forms :: How To Embed Silverlight Xap Into Aspx Page
Feb 21, 2010
How to embed silverlight xap into aspx page. I have created students database. I want to keep search option to find student name. It should be done in silverlight. I want to embed that silverlight in aspx page.
I've created a silverlight application, MainPage.xaml has silverlight controls. The code behind of it will be definately in MainPage.xaml.cs file. When creating a silverlight app, I've selected a default web project wherein this silverlight app will be hosted and run. After all my work in MainPage.xaml.cs file, I want to integrate it in my default.aspx file. As i understand, I need to give reference to xap file in this aspx file. I tried accessing
<asp:Silverlight ID="xx" runat="Server.. />
tag but had no luck. This tag does not come up, Am i missing to add reference to any silverlight dll to my web application. Or is this tag applicable for Silverlight 2.0 and not 3.0 which I'm using:
i have made a user control carrying a grid which is showing different uploaded images , description etc. I am putting this in another aspx page and want to fetch the values of the silverlight grid. I have made a class file for that but unable to get the grid collection.
We have a silverlight/asp.net application which communicates with WCF to fetch data. Now we are facing a problem where in the silverlight component is taking some time to initialize after the asp.net page life cycle is completed.We have tried tracing all the events and found that there is a time lapse between the aspx page unload event and silverlight initialize event. This we have tried with even a simple application (hello world) but still have found the same result.There is nearly 3-4 seconds delay i.e the silverlight component initialization starts 3-4 seconds after the page unload event ends.
I am new to silverlight and I am wondering if it is possible to access silverlight object data from the aspx page that host it. Or have silverlight write to a hidden field on the page on client side.
What I am trying to do is to use silverlight to upload file via WCF (client to WCF Service directly instead of posting data back to the web server then forwarded to WCF service). When uploading a large file, user can still do some data entry etc. And once the upload is done have it write some data return by the WCF service to the aspx's hidden field and postback to the server on submit.
I have an aspx masterpage that I would like to use in Sketchflow in ExpressionBlend as a Silverlight project. I am totally out of my comfort zone here and am not even sure how to ask this question. This masterpage has a Header and a Footer and the middle section will contain the Content - which will actually be Silverlight. Is there some easy method to bring the design (aspx) into Sketchflow to use?
I'm developing a web site, and i'm using infragistics for web, but I want to use in some pages silverlight controls (Infragistics too). Is there a way to access a silverlight control's properties and methods from an aspx page?
We have a ASP.NET web application written in VB.NET where we build content programmatically during the Init event.
We make extensive use of user controls, building them on the fly, and I now want to start including SilverLight content.
Is there an easy way of embedding a SilverLight application in a control, and then instantiating the whole thing in code, in the same way as you'd programmatically add ordinary ASP.NET controls to a page?
The SilverLight component itself works fine when added to a page using the <object> tag but I really want to be able to reuse it elsewhere in code.
Since I'm expecting use of SilverLight to increase in our application, and the asp:Silverlight control seems now to be deprecated, I'm looking for an alternative way of wrapping the content.
First, we are constrained to using an existing web framework that handles authentication and authorization. The web project uses forms authentication and writes to an encrypted cookie. The user information is exposed to the aspx pages as a property:
This has several properties including the userId and role list.
I've looked at using initParams, but haven't been very successful there (edit: I couldn't do it dynamically originally). I've created a simple POCO entity with a [Key] attribute, but I need to at least be able to pass the userId from the aspx page to the imbedded silverlight.
What is the easiest way to pass a dynamic object from aspx to silverlight 4?
Then used Slugster's example to use the values on the Silverlight side.
Warning: Passing user information via init params exposes the info as plain text to the user viewing the page (they just have to view the source). We ended up using an authentication domain service and using the same user object as the aspx
We have an ASP.Net 2.x web site. We want to migrate it to Silverlight full frame application. However, there is no way we can go away in a corner and redo every web page in SL right off the bat.
What I would like to do is build the chrome of the app (main page, dashboard, login, common system/config screens, main menu) in SL and be able to open existing .aspx pages in the main content SL frame.
From what I see there is no way to do this. I thought the Webbrowser control in SL4 would be the answer, but apparently that only works if your app is run out of browser.
So, what is my best recourse? It seems like I will have to create some type of .aspx page that hosts the .XAP and pass in the page I want it to load?
how to embed a video in a Asp.net web page with only general functions(Play,Stop),i have to play the video in the page of my website(dont want to redirect to any other oage to play the video) and without using Silverlight.
