CRM 2011: HTML web resource consuming Silverlight web resource RRS feed

  • Now when I have removed script element to include Silverlight.js. And now when I click Preview button to preview the HTML web resource, it does not prompt any errors but it shows a blank page. No data grid is visible.

  • Ajay,

    Open Visual Studio and attach debugger to the IE process. Put a breakpoint at the very beginning of you SL application and see if the SL code gets invoked. If your breakpoint is hit, you can step through the code.

  • How could I insert a breakpoint when I am suppose to upload my application.xap file to CRM? I tried with throwing an object of Exception manually in OnLoad event and then tried to attach the preview IE process with the debugger. But the exception is not thrown.

    Rather when I insert this silverlight web resource in the opportunity form. The form does throw an exception. Also please note that Silverlight application works great (when i dont manually throw an exception) in the opportunity form.

    1. Uploaded SilverlightApp.xap file to a web resource of type silverlight

    2. Created a HTML web resource (named as new_SLHostPage) to host the SilverlightApp.xap (referenced using $webresource directive)

    3. Created a javascript function which has


    4. Configured the onchange event of Subject line to call javascript written in step 3.

  • Hi Ajay,

    This is the procedure to follow to open a Silverlight application by clicking a custom button in the ribbon menu.

    1. Add the button, in the custom action put this code: <CommandDefinition Id="AnId">
                          <Url Address="$webresource:new_/SilverlightFromRibbonTestPage.html" PassParams="true"></Url>
    2. Create two web resources one for the xap and one for the html. Call the Silverlight webresource this way: new_/ClientBin/SilverlightFromRibbon.xap, and your html this way: new_/SilverlightFromRibbonTestPage.html.

    Step 1, 3a and 3b that you did are not needed.

    Soon I will upload a full working example on my blog: http://lucianodangelo.blogspot.com/

    I hope this help.

    Cheers, Luciano.
