Hello Toprak Abdullah,

You need to create a Silverlight application and include that application into the required ASP page. Beware that Silverlight is downloaded to the client and any postback to the server will reload it.

I'm not sure if I get you right, but you want to rewrite your existing ASP.NET application in Silverlight step by step?

Hi Toprak Abdullah,

I'm glad to hear you have positive opinion about Silverlight.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to mix asp and Silverlight components on one page. You can embed Silverlight app inside asp page. So you need to separate your app in independent modules and rewrite them one by one into Silverlight. If the modules don't communicate with each other, and maintain communication only through the server, you should be able to migrate the app.

Also you can take a look at HTML Bridge types and methods. Here is the link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645076(VS.95).aspx
These types allow you to call JavaScript functions from Silverlight and vice versa. This way you can exchange info between Silverlight and JavaScript. However this communication is hard to maintain.

Hope this helps.

All the best,
