Widget on silverlight


Hi guys,

How can i embed twitter widget on silverlight 4 site

best regards


Hi Carlos,

This is very similar to the Flash-embed question I answered just now, so I’m going to crib my same answer:

Any Silverlight web content has an underlying HTML page, and you can include the Twitter widget there. You may be able to overlay the widget frame over your Silverlight plugin content in an appropriate place, using CSS positioning to place it fixed in the browser, and leaving a space of the same size in the Silverlight layout.

If that doesn’t work for you, there may be Silverlight Tweet rendering tools out there that other developers have written, but basically you’ll need to use the API to fetch Tweets and render them manually.
