Hi Experts

I have a silverlight 4 project and i have also created a silverlight class library to write code for unsafe classes and to allow me to run this code i need the 'Allow unsafe code' option enabled and it isnt within my build properties tab of the silverlight project. Does anyone know to enable this option?

Thanks

It is disabled as SilverLight application can run on non windows os which may not proived or even may not support such things. but if you are interested in printing then you may go through these links:
