I just started playing with Silverlight and the Rad Controls.

I have a question regarding using a manual play button.  I have my control configured and have two media items. I have AutoPlay set to false. When I click an item from the Play list it starts to play immediately. I want the user to click play... what am I missing here?

Thanks!

Hi sayitfast,

Originally AutoPlay means whether to start playing from the first item in the playlist or not. But it is now obsolete and is replaced with SelectedIndex = 0.

Currently you can't do what you need out-of-the-box, but with some extra code.
You'll need to handle the MediaOpened
<player:RadMediaPlayer x:Name="player" MediaOpened="player_MediaOpened" SelectedIndex="0">

And Pause the video.

void player_MediaOpened(object sender, RadRoutedEventArgs e)
{          
    player.MediaElement.Pause();           
}

Hope this works for you.

That does work... THANKS!

Seems to me though that should be an exposed property... Having videos autostart is not always a good idea.

Thanks.
