Resize Silverlight with browser?

Hi, I'm very new to silverlight.

I'm trying to test some functionnalitites of silverlight and i was wondering if there's a way to display the silverlight web page to fill the entire browser?

If so you guys have any example? I'm also curious about making the page display in full screen.

Thanks for the help.

Ok i found the anwser to my question...

I found two solutions depending on what you want to do:

#1 If you want the app to only resize with the browser WITHOUT resizing the controls inside (no scale) you need to do this in your page.xaml.vb or . cs

#1 for VB: (in page.xaml.vb)

Public Sub New()
             InitializeComponent()

              AddHandler App.Current.Host.Content.Resized, AddressOf Content_Resized

End Sub

Private Sub Content_Resized(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
              Me.Width = App.Current.Host.Content.ActualWidth
              Me.Height = App.Current.Host.Content.ActualHeight
End Sub


#1 for C#: (in page.xaml.cs)

public Page()

{
           InitializeComponent();

          App.Current.Host.Content.Resized += new EventHandler(Content_Resized);
}

void Content_Resized(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

           this.Width = App.Current.Host.Content.ActualWidth;
           this.Height = App.Current.Host.Content.ActualHeight;

}

Solution #2 Where you want the controls to be scale with the resizing of the browser

you need to define some scale transformations.
