Hi

I'm working on a Visual Studio.NET 2010 Silverlight Application using C#. I've got a Silverlight Navigation Template which I've added a Master Page to. What i'd like to know is how to mimic the ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock using SilverLight.  
 
I want one Silverlight event to write the javascript function to the Master Page and another Silverlight event to call that Javascript Function.
 
I have to do it this way as I'm using an embedded print runtime object which can extract the printer attached to the local pc.

Thanks

Hi,

In silverlight you can run javascript directly by using:

HtmlPage.Window.Invoke();

you can store the script into a string in the first event you want to create it and then where you want to invoke it you can do
System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Eval(script);

I tried the following statement and got the following error:

  HtmlPage.Window.Eval("<script>alert('Print Job finished!');</script>");


System.InvalidOperationException was unhandled by user code
  Message=Microsoft JScript compilation error Syntax error

I tried adding the type and got the following error:

  HtmlPage.Window.Eval("<script type='text/javascript'>alert('Print Job finished!');</script>");

If I add the javascript function to my master page and use this it works.

   HtmlPage.Window.Invoke("CreatePrinterScript", null);

My issue is that I can’t write the javascript function to the master page.

I’ve even tried creating a Scriptable Managed Type with no success.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

The HtmlPage.Window.Eval(yourscript) worked. The reason it wasn't working before for me was because I was building the javascript string with the <script> tags and the function declaration.
I tested it first with HtmlPage.Window.Eval("alert('Test!');") It succeeded so it was a matter of stripping the headers from the code and testing again by passing my string var, HtmlPage.Window.Eval(JScript)

And this worked. So thanks.
