Hello

I need to add a Silverlight control to a C++ Toolbar running in Internet Explorer.
I've found following article googling (see on bottom of the thread):
http://silverlight.net/forums/p/58555/149620.aspx

I need a DETAILED procedure for doing that in Visual Studio 2008 (detailed because I know C++ but never implemented any COM / ActiveX / OLE stuff using VS C++).

Points offered: 500 so I need a detailed procedure (click here and here).

The issue is not coding in Silverlight ( so easy and so well documented) but including the SL into a C++ IE toolbar.

Yes, I did.
I had two axes of solutions :
- embed directly the Silverlight Active X into IE Toolbar
- embed an HtmlPage control containing a silverlight

I never succeeded with the first solution so the second one was the good way for me. The trick was to open popups (it was Silverlight 2) and I did this by opening another HTMLPage control into a native Windows popup.

The result is here :

I followed your link but was not able to find where the toolbar can be downloaded.
Do you have a direct link?

I'm currently investigating using this kind of approach to create a toolbar and it would be great to see what you managed to do using Silverlight!

Do you know if there is an easier way to open popups with Silverlight 4?

Thanks!
