Silverlight 3 came up with Out Of Browser support. Using that feature one can install the application just like a standalone windows application. Hence no need to open the browser to run the Silverlight application. Today for the first time I gone thru the APIs & created a sample application. Here I will discuss about the same to give you a demonstration. It is quite easy to implement.
Create a Silverlight application using Visual Studio 2008. This will automatically create “MainPage.xaml”. Now open the MainPage.xaml & add the following lines inside the LayoutRoot Grid:
<StackPanel Margin="20" HorizontalAlignment="Center">
<TextBlock Text="Silverlight Out Of Browser Demo Application"
<Button x:Name="btnInstall" Content="Install as Out Of Browser Application"
Width="300" Height="20" Margin="20"/>
