Hi, it's the giving time of the year... One thing we would love to do on the Silverlight Toolkit is embed Silverlight content in our CodePlex site, to help everyone better interact with and understand the capabilities of Silverlight and controls.
It'd be nice for us to offer samples, control examples, and other Silverlight content on the CodePlex site. Does that mean embedded Silverlight <object /> tags or iframes? Not sure, but it would be nice to have some option here.
I think this would be a nice feature for many more projects than just ours.
One of the fun things about CodePlex is that it is all about the entire community, and we ("Microsoft") don't hold any special strings here. So, I'm asking for your assistance this holiday season!
If you're a CodePlex user, it would rock if you'd just spend a minute and vote for the 'Silverlight hosting' feature request on the site at http://www.codeplex.com/CodePlex/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=10303.
Thanks for your assistance, and happy holidays,
