Sharepoint Webpart Real-Estate Question

I have developed a menu system implemented in SilverLight.  I have embedded this SilverLight application in a SharePoint WebPart.  My question is will the SilverLight application be limited to to drawing menus in the region defined by the Web Part or will it be able to display menus outside of the Web Part?  So if the Web Part is defined to be 300x400 will my SilverLight menu be limited to that region?  My fear is that this will be the case.  My goal was to place the Web Part on the left side of the SharePoint site's master page so that it would be displayed on all pages.

Thanks in advance,
Terry

Hi Terry,

Slightly confused about what your desired outcome is. If you have a silverlight app that is sized at say 600x800 and you put a silverlight web part on a sharepoint page sized at 300x400 then you will only get 300x400 of the silverlight app showing on the sharepoint page. The rest of the app is there but I believe you will get a scroll.

My confusion is whether or not that was your desired outcome and whether I actually answered your question

Hi Sharepointguru14,
Thanks for your response.  Please let me try to explain in more detail.

I was hoping to implement a hierarchical menu system as a SilverLight Web Part.  Menu system would consist of a single main menu titled ‘Applications’ and when pushed a menu hierarchy would be displayed.  I was hoping that I could place this Web Part on the design service with a minimal footprint size of let say as an example 100x300.  I was also hoping that the menu would expand over other SharePoint widgets.  As an example I was hoping to have something like the following on the left side of the page:

   Some Label Widget 1
   SilverLightMenu Widget
   Some Label Widget 2
   Some Label Widget 3
   …
   Some Label Widget N

The SilverLightMenu Widget when expanded might look something like the following:
   Applications
        Reports
            Cash Report
            Position Report
            Balances Report
        Counterparty Application
        Entity Application
        Reconcilation
           Cash Rec Application
           Position Rec Application
        …

My question is if I click on the MySilverLightMenu can it popup the menu over ‘Some Label Widget 2’ – ‘Some Label Widget N’ or will it be constrainged to the WebPart region 100x300?
Thanks again,
Terry

Ok I understand. I have not tried so my answer is an assumption however its an assumption I'm fairly confident it correct. You would be confined to the WebPart region.
