Have master page setup as a usercontrol.  Within the masterpage have a grid control for use as a page container.   When master pg loads, would like to know in VB.net how to load another user control inside the page container.  Such as a login form.  Then need the ability to execute code and if login is successful, switch out the user control within the master for another usercontrol.  Using Silverlight 2 and vb.net

This is the basic logic for swapping pages. It's in c# but it should be easy enough to rewrite it in vb:

        public masterpage()
        {            if (contentgrid.Content == null)
                contentgrid.Content = new logincontrol();
       public void Navigate(UserControl nextPage)
            contentgrid.Content = nextPage;

There are plenty of login controls available for silverlight. Here is one: http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/silverlight/general/simple-login-control.aspx

To execute code after login you should put it in the method namd similar to webservice_logincompleted, which is the event handler for when the login service method has completed. (So you'd put the call to the navigate method here to load in whatever control you wanted)
