    First off, this is a great control and has saved my skin until SL5 is available!
    However one of my requirements is that the SL app I'm working on can be hosted in a winforms app within a System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser. This all works fine apart from the HtmlPlaceholder which doesn't display on top. It does do something as when the placeholder would normally be visible I get an extra bit appearing at the bottom of the page below the SL object but no overlay. I'm using the exact same host page as I do in a normal browser.

    Is this a known limitation?

    I've attached a screenshot showing the issue. The content should appear within the border inside the selected tab.

    Hello Paul Mcnamara,

    In its core, RadHtmlPlaceholder is just an IFrame that is being rendered on top of the Silverlight plugin. So I believe that the issue might be caused by some limitations in the IFrame used in WinForms control.
