    Hello,
    I know that perhaps is a stupid question but I must be sure that what I need is not possible to have.
    My scenario is this:

    - SharePoint
    - Silverlight application hosted in a web part

    So the Silverlight application is hosted in a small area. The rest of the page is HTML.
    I would like to open a Window dialog centered in the page and I would like to move this dialog over all the page. Moreover I need to pass data to the dialog and back again when the user close it.
    If I open the dialog inside the Silverlight object the user can interact with the rest of the page and isnot correct.

    How can obtain this? Is it possible in some way?

    Thanks,
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,

     What you need to achieve is not supported by Silverlight. What I would suggest you is to use the RadWindow control for ASP.NET Ajax.

    All the best,

    It would be nice if I could drag windows across frames. I mostly use out of browser, so asp.net popups won't work for me.  I found a link using sllauncher, http://mtaulty.com/CommunityServer/blogs/mike_taultys_blog/archive/2010/09/16/silverlight-out-of-browser-and-multiple-windows.aspx

    but I'm not sure I really want to use that.  I think I'll probably just make my out of browser frame big and use rad windows and docking.  maybe have a list where I can select which rad window I want.

    Hi Dan,

     The Silverlight popups can be shown only inside Silverlight. Using bigger application and hosting all the parts in separate RadWindows or Docking ToolWindows should help you overcome this limitation.
