    Apologizing ahead of time if this question doesn't make sense...  I am new to silverlight and telerik.

    I would like to create a dashboard using TileView that shows several reporting services reports.  In asp pages it is a piece of cake.  But I do not understand (or can find examples) of displaying web content in a tileview.  Can someone point me to a good resource, or at least tell me if it is possible?

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    It appears htmlPlaceholder is the way to do this.  Problem is that it is a div rendered on top of the silverlight area, and the performance isn't acceptable.  :(  Maybe in future releases...

    Hi John,

    Unfortunately there's not much we can do about this particular scenario. The whole performance issue comes from 1) rendering and animating a DIV on top of the Silverlight plugin and 2) marking the Silverlight plugin as Windowless. Let's hope that future versions of the Silverlight plugin will provide better HTML integration.

    Thank you very much for your response - I am holding my breath that silverlight will allow this in the future.  Let's keep our fingers crossed :).
