I suggest you ...

Allow the HTML control to be used in browser.

Out of browser is fine (SL 4 Beta), but it is also needed in browser so that "3rd party" html content can be incorporated into a Silverlight application (actually a show-stopper for me).

        The HtmlControl planned for SL5 is the same hack everyone is complaining about. The z-order is still going to be a problem and it will be slow.

        For trusted in-browser apps only?? That is of no use for apps you want to distribute to the general public, as you need to setup a special registry key to allow trusted in-browser apps. I highly doubt the average user is going to have this reg key setup. So looks like this will only be solved for internal corporate use.

        Hi Pete

        Thats great news, what is the ETA for it?

      • Adam HughesAdam Hughes commented  · 

        Absolutely necessary.
        For example I want to have my main app in Silverlight but have the Online Payments System in HTML so I can write it once for all formats and devices.

        But you're IN the browser... you can just interact with it already, can you not?

        I don't understand the security model around hosting an IFrame within Silverlight, but if this is possible, it needs to be done. It's a gaping whole in SL funtionality.

        I want to have a multi-panel Silverlight browser features, excuse me Microsoft has a browser window blocking feature not talk about a new, open the browser's functionality, and embedded in the browser with Silverlight implementation of alert and ban open a new window window.open Function.

        The 5 Beta still fails to do this right. Try:
        Window w = new Window();
        w.Height = 400;
        w.Width = 600;
        w.Content = new WebBrowser();
        w.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;

        and watch it appear in the original window top of the Z order as badly as before.
        Got to, Got to, Got to have a webbrowser control or htmlViewer that doesn't break Z order, and allows us to display web content on a child or breakout window!

        I know a guy who lost his job for Silverlight's lack of support. It is extremely important

        Our workaround for the lack of this feature is to use multiple iframes, but it has loads of problems and limitations.

        Allow the HTML control to be used in browser.

      • CWCW commented  · 

        Incredibly important, otherwise building a new silvelight website is extremely tedious and time consuming as you cannot reuse/integrate existing HTML widgets/apps into yor SL apps.

        this's import

        The existing support for this functionality is basically a hack which causes all controls with lower z-order to appear underneath the HTML control. A built-in control for this functionality is a must-have.
